BRILLIANT BOWLS: Croxley Guild Bowls Club players return to the green for start of 2024 season

 Published on: 6th May 2024   |   By: Sophia Sheera   |   Category: Uncategorized

A total of 40 bowlers ventured back onto the green on Sunday, April 21, for the start of Croxley Guild Bowls Club’s 2024 season.

According to club spokesperson Hazel Clarke, players sometimes find it tricky to get back into the swing of the game after the long winter break. As expected, the first friendly match saw quite a few short bowls and incorrect biases. Despite this, the players thoroughly enjoyed their first friendly club match of the year.

Following a loss against Harefield on April 25, the Croxley bowlers are now regrouping and readying themselves for the competitive season.

Speaking on the importance of the sport, Hazel said: “Bowls can sound fuddy-duddy but for me and a lot of people, it’s been a bit of a lifesaver.

“There are local people from all walks of life coming together three times a week – we’ve got social events like quiz nights in the winter and the summer is busy with bowls itself. We’ve got loads of matches organised already.”
