A large group of bowlers and their families attended the annual east beds league dinner dance at the Weatherly Centre in Biggleswade on the 18th January, this is where all the winners and runners up of the East Beds League competitions are presented with their trophies. 2019 was another successful year for B.T.B.C. 

Our men's A team collected the runners up plaque for division two. The ladies A team were presented with two runners up plaques, one for division one and the other for the knockout cup. Top prize in the name of our club was presented to our Ladies C team as winners of the knockout cup.

If you don't want to take part in either the darts or carpet bowls please feel free to pop along to support those who are playing or just have drink afrank, nd a chat with fellow members and friends.

Eagle Travel League

For the third time in the season our lads lined up against a very strong Kempston Hammers team on 15th February. Chris, Tony, Martin and Danny knew it was going to be tough due to the results against Hammers in the first two games, 6-26 and 12-22 defeats. Our guys defied the odds in the first end by picking up four shots, but as the fourth end finished we were 4-5 behind, and in fact we did not get another shot on our side of the score board until end ten to make the score 5-11, this despite some good bowling by our quartet but Kempston seamed to have an answer to everything our lads tried. By the fourteenth end the score was 6-23, but some better luck combined with more good bowling by the Biggleswade boys saw the final score a bit more reasonable at 11-26. An overall score of 29-74 to Kempston in the three games this season, no wonder they are pushing hard to topple Henlow off of the top spot in the league.

As we always say, keep the faith...……..

FOUR CLUB CHALLENGE MATCH VICTORY

The annual four club challenge match took place on 1st February. Langford, Henlow, St. Andrews and Biggleswade Town bowls clubs  fielded three rinks each to play against the other three clubs, a brilliant all round performance by the 12 players of our club saw a clean sweep of three winning rinks and therefore victory was assured.

A massive WELL DONE to all the guys who took part, a special mention must go to two of our social members who helped us out by making up the numbers. Also a big thanks to Bedford Borough Bowls Club for their hospitality in hosting the game.
