EBU 2017 – Lookout, the Sun is due out!

We know every weather forecast is capable of telling a porky or two, but surely today we are due some Sun and warmth?

Whatever the weather does, the bowls at Les Creux is hot enough to keep anyone warm with sets being grabbed off all Countries big and small.

Today reverts back to the normal programme now play has been caught up and I’m sure the Sun will put a smile on our players faces.

We look forward to your continued support!

European Bowls Championships 2017

Mondays Play schedule has been refined.

The facilities at Les Creux are first class – and so is the Bowls! Don’t believe me? Come and see for yourself!!

There were many supporters there yesterday and I hope to see the same, if not more throughout the week. I am very grateful to the membership for their support of our tournament.”
