Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association 

Hi EveryoneCaroline Website

I hope you have been wintering well and are now starting to look forward to April. The snowdrops, daffodils and crocus are all out in my garden and the magnolia tree is almost in full bloom. All good signs of Spring on its way. Frogs are back in the pond but no spawn yet. Spiky the Hedgehog has been out for food every night for a couple of weeks now.

Our Congratulations go to the Warwickshire players invited to attend the Bowls England Trials on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa, who are listed in the article below. 

Firstly I would like to thank you all for the attention you paid to the Bowls England proposals that are set to change the shape of the National Competitions. Attendance at our Special General meeting was excellent (thank you) and as a result Debbie Bloxham was able to attend the Bowls England AGM with a clear mandate from the Warwickshire Ladies. She has sent out a detailed report to all clubs but in a nutshell only two of the BE proposals were rejected. The Two Wood singles will continue as a National Championship competition and the Top Club also continues in its current format.

Effective in 2025 the age range for the Amy Rose has been reduced to ‘under 24 as of 1st April annually’ and the playing format has also been changed.

Secondly exciting news has come in thick and fast:B England Rising Star

  • Congratulations to Emily Kernick who was chosen to receive the BOWLS ENGLAND ‘RISING STAR’ AWARD. Very well deserved. Warwickshire is proud of you Emily.
  • Well done to all the Indoor Competitors who reached the National Finals. Warwickshire can be truly proud of their ladies. Given the showing this winter both indoors and at the winter training squad the indicators are all there for a good outdoor season in 2024 in the Johns Trophy and the Walker Cup.

Finally, congratulations and thanks to the team that made a great success of the recent Afternoon Tea at Lillington. Your hard work paid off.

Caroline
