Some fine weather at the start of the month allowed Welbeck Abbey Bowls Club to get their season off toa good start.
On Wednesday 1st May, they took on Welbeck Abbey and Rampton Village Bowls Clubs in the first inter-club match.
With Rampton short of players, Welbeck loaned them a player to complete three teams or four for each club.
The result was a close match, with a win for Rampton in the first leg.
On Sunday 5th May Welbeck hosted the first of their club cup matches, and 46 members took part in a hotly contested competition for the Roy Bamford Cup.
Winner of the two bowls drive David Gascoyne was presented with the cup and a bottle of wine by Hilary Wignell, team captain for the 2013 season.
Bank Holiday Monday produced another good turnout, on a hot afternoon, for a Club Drive.
The winner on this occasion was John Hallam, and he received a bottle of wine from event organiser Andy Pointon.
On Sunday Welbeck hosts Arthur’s Shield, another two bowls drive, at 2pm.
