County Pairs Championships 2016

This is a new open competition which was advertised on our noticeboard and attracted four entries from Palmerston. All games are to 21 ends or 4 hours (whichever is the shorter). As the results come in you will be able to follow the scores and the next draws here on this page.

Christmas Meals update

Weekend bookings are now full. There are still some places available for weekday meals, although some days are fully booked for tables of five people or more. Please checkout the weekday menu before booking your places at the club.

Atherley beat Palmerston in Bramley League

The latest Bramley results are in and the news was not favourable for Palmerston. The scores now mean that Palmerston are in joint second place with Riverside (although still a game in hand over Atherley) and maintain a greater shot difference advantage.

Hampshire men beat Berkshire twice

In the Men's Over 60's Inter-County match on 12th November, Hampshire beat Berkshire by 121 - 112. The 3 rinks playing at home (at Chawton Park) won and gained enough points advantage to overcome the 3 losing rinks at the away venue (Desborough IBC). This takes the team into the semi-final to be played by 5th February 2016. The actual date has yet to be fixed. The detailed results have been posted on the Hampshire Indoor Bowls Association website here.

In the Liberty Trophy Inter-County Championship played on 21st November, Hampshire men beat Berkshire by exactly the same score 121 - 112. All 6 rinks played away at Whiteknights IBC and again there were 3 winning rinks and 3 losing rinks. The detailed result sheet can be seen here. The next round is against Wiltshire on 16th January 2016. Unfortunately Hampshire are drawn away again, but if the team wins that, the quarter final will be a home match.

Club Membership

There are now spaces for full membership at Palmerston Bowls. This means that applications for membership are now being accepted. Details of how to apply and fees are available on the membership section of this website.

Competitions Update

There were insufficient entries from members entering the FIRST WINNERS SINGLES (only six entries) and the FIRST WINNERS MIXED PAIRS (four entries) to make them viable competitions. So these competitions will not take place this year and competitors will be refunded their entry money.

There were seven entries for the NOVICES PAIRS competition and it has been decided to run this as a mini league with each pair playing all the other pairs once. This will give competitors six games, with two points for a win and one for a draw. Each game should be a timed session of TWO HOURS. Once all the league games have been played, the top two pairs will go forward to a play off in Finals Week to ascertain who will be the champion and who will be runners up.
