Forty bowlers turned out for the annual opening of Welbeck Abbey Bowls Club’s green.

At pm the first game got under way and 35 players took to the green, with 18 ends played before Janice Fox took the first win of the year.

During the winter months many members carried on playing indoors at the Bassetlaw Community Centre.

Two teams took part in the “T” league and “Spring Cup” competitions, namely the Vice Squad and Welbeck Wanderers.

The Vice Squad were runners up in the T league while The Wanderers won the Spring Cup.

Welbeck Abbey Bowls Club now have their own website www.welbeckabbeybowlsclub.co.uk where you can keep up to date with all the latest club information.

Although membership numbers are almost full you can still contact Maureen on 01909 477744.
