Very Successful Day

We were recently the Refreshments and Tournament HQ for the Northants Junior Open held by Daventry Squash Club on the same site as our club. The event was very successful and here is a letter from Mike who organised it.
Hi Janet,
Thanks very much… but I think that given the comments I have received, those of you in the Bowls Club were the stars of the day. A sample:
“Great tournament.. really well organised and thought those running the refreshments from the bowls club did a great job!” – Luke Harrington, father of Gilbert Harrington, boys under 13.
“Thanks for yesterday – seemed to go smoothly and the team down at the bowls club were tremendous” – Guy Mander, father of Harry Mander, boys under 15.
“Beautiful venue – Excellent courts – Very good hospitality. What more can a child & parent wish” – Ashish Chikermane, father of Vinayak Chikermane, boys under 15.
So… thank YOU. Absolutely brilliant day, biggest event I’ve run and I could never have done it without you and everyone else involved at the club. Please pass these comments on – looking forward immensely to more events!
Happy New Year
Mike.

Manfield Cup, Saturday 3 July

We woke up to a wet and miserable day but the sun came out in time to mow the green and get everything set up for the afternoon.

The four Daventry Town teams played at – Roade, Kettering Lodge, Geddington and Rushden, with a very narrow win by Steve, Steve, Dave and Doug.  Well done to all those who participated I am sure everyone enjoyed another opportunity to get out and about and see fellow bowlers again,

We hosted players from Kislingbury, Whyte Melville, Irchester, Kingsthorpe, Wellingborough, Oundle, Geddington and Chapel Forest who all seemed to enjoy a relaxed, but competitive afternoon of bowls.  The after match chats were mostly centred on the upcoming England football match and we have been told not to mention the raffle – which was exceptionally well supported.  Special thanks to all those volunteers who helped either before, during or after the match, it would not have been so successful without you.

The afternoon reflected what sport is all about and it was great to see so many smiling faces.  Thank you to all who took part in the day, either by playing or organising, we are already looking forward to next year’s matches.
