Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
My Dear Girls,
Finally, we are coming out of our covid driven cocoons, able thankfully to get back on the green and to meet each other again.
Thank you to Debbie and her Stratford team for organising such a wonderful SVP day. Having the two sessions meant that so many of you had the chance to meet up and have a great time.
County Competitions are now underway, thank you for being so flexible with this year’s forced home and away system. Not easy at all but hopefully you will all work hard to help Rosemarie, our wonderful Competitions Secretary have an easy time as she has had a tough 20 months getting everything up and running. Losing last year’s work completely and then having so much changed and altered this year. A nightmare. I look forward to seeing you at the sharp end and initially at Lillington for the 2 wood singles. All enjoy.
Very soon we should hear of the next acceptable way of playing, with hopefully many more on the green which will allow us to finally go ahead with our planned schedule.
With this slow start, let us be ready to really step up the pace and be there to give our opposition a tough task!
Upwards and Onwards with flexibility and humour.
Your President Mary and Officers. 7 May 2021

Under 25 Bowls Academy
The Warwickshire Bowls Academy has been formed to provide young bowlers in the Under 25 age bracket with the opportunity to work with other players within the whole of the County; develop young players to be the best bowlers they can be, both as individuals and to be ready to represent the County; to allow members of the Academy the option to become qualified coaches in their own right.
The Aim is to develop and enhance practical bowling skills; to broaden and develop players' knowledge of the game; to foster and develop team spirit ; highlight why young people are important to the future of the County; to prepare young players to challenge for places in all Warwickshire Bowls Association teams; and to identify and prepare players for potential Bowls England Youth Academy and International teams.
It is initially planned to hold four sessions per year. However extra sessions may be added if and when appropriate. The sessions will take place on Sunday mornings at Lillington BC South Warwickshire commencing at 10.00am and ending at 12.30pm. The dates for 2021 are as follows Sunday 16 May; Sunday 6 June; Sunday 20 June; Sunday 18 July.
