Well done to the ladies who played on Friday, our closest match yet. Jeanne, Gill and Sheila were level pegging with the opposition for most of the game, while Marie, Alison and Janet fought back from a 5 – 13 deficit to only lose by 2 points at 13 – 15.
Well done to the ladies who played in their first league triples match against Kingsthorpe.

The club hosted a successful table top event, first of the winter season, on 28 November 2021, and what a show it was!
Thirteen tables skilfully dressed and ably staffed by local entrepreneurs and vendors made for a delightful afternoon of commerce, companionship and an opportunity to meet and greet friends old and new.
An open bar, coffee and tea and light snacks and a magical snowstorm topped off the day. Many grateful thanks to all involved!
I am very happy to report that the Short Mat at DTBC will recommence on Wednesday 22nd September at 7.00 pm.
We look forward to bowling with existing members and any new ones who wish to try Short mat.
I collected Mike and the luggage from Meacham on Saturday… After a look round a couple of shops in Hunstanton,, we all headed home. A Clio with four adults and a bit of luggage, and my Scenic with Mike and the rest of the luggage and picnic stuff and wheelchair ,,, all home safely a little after two o’clock after a couple of stops..
no drama ‘s from the satnav… A bit different from the previous Saturday when taking them to Heacham… But we don’t talk about that anymore.!!!😂😂😂😂😂😂
Thank you to everyone who supported the Daventry and District Sports Club open day. I hope everyone enjoyed their session and that we see you again soon.
The volunteers at all the clubs were fantastic and made the day special.
Today, the whole sports club is open from 11- 4. Come along and try bowls, squash, archery, athletics, table tennis or rugby and enjoy a cream tea in the bowling club.
Congratulations to Bill, who won the meat raffle (again) last night.
Hope you enjoy the meat from John Thorne, Daventry market Tuesday and Friday.
- Thanks for the great support from everyone on Friday night. The meat raffle, from John Thorne ( Daventry market Tuesday and Friday) was won by Caroline, congratulations to her.
The pizza was well received and the profits from the food and raffle help with club finances.
Looking forward to seeing you all next week.
Thanks to all the bowlers who took part in the match against the Grange, hopefully we can arrange home and away games next season.
The rain, thankfully, held off and we enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon.
Unfortunately we lost on all three rinks but there is only one direction from here.
Well done to everyone, including the men who served the tea and biscuits.
Finally, after all these weeks, I’ve won the meat raffle. Don’t know why I am so pleased, as I am a vegetarian, but it’s nice to win. Thank you John, for the meat, always good quality.
