The outdoor season is now underway at Pelton Fell Bowls Club with the green open from Sunday 15th April 2018. With the winter being so wet, mats may be in operation to protect the green until it dries out fully.
Members are asked to pay fees as soon as possible, and to check notice boards for fixtures, competitions and duty rotas.
Team fixtures for the season are now available to view under the "Member Pages" tab. Please check the club notice boards periodically to learn of any changes to fixtures.
Applications or expressions of interest are now being accepted for our 2018 Open Pairs competition, due to be held over the May Bank holiday weekend - Sunday 27th May and Monday 28th May 2018. Please contact Brian Brown, Secretary.
Many thanks to the Pelton Fell ladies who raised £300 for club funds at a recent coffee morning at Chester le Street Chapel. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!
Club success during the 2017 Outdoor season included:-
The ladies team winning the Friday evening Winship League The vets winning the Vets League for the fourth time in five years The club winning the Durham & District Millennium Cup for the first time
In addition to hosting matches for the Durham Ladies A and B teams, the club hosted the Durham & District finals day, the final of the North West Durham Fours, and a qualifying round for the National Two Wood competition. This is testimony to the hard work that our dedicated groundskeeper volunteers put into maintaining the green. The good news is that the club has been asked to host further National Competition matches and ladies county matches in 2018.
