The 2017 season has now come to an end and there have been many exciting moments although the main story was the culmination of the season with the Finals taking place last month. Andy Savin and Geraldine Perrin took the singles titles, whilst Dave White and Stewart Rump favourites for the pairs indeed made no mistake in winning that title. The formidable pairing of Jean Barltrop and Mags Shelley took the ladies pairs title but the winners were in fact all the bowlers who took part and of course all the members who put in such a big shift to ensure that the whole thing worked smoothly and thanks must go to Felicity Rees and Mags Shelley who were primarily involved in the organisation. All the photographs that you can see from the weekend finals sessions were taken courtesy of Peter Butler so thanks to him and indeed there are so many people,staunch and invaluable members of Marlow Bowls Club who worked tirelessly to create a successful two days.

We have been fortunate to see our match reports being regularly shown in both the Bucks Free Press and the Maidenhead Advertiser this year and we send our massive thanks for their support and we are also grateful to the support offered by Marlow FM and Wycombe Radio who have both featured interviews about the club.  Further thanks also go to the various local publications notably The Marlovian and Round and About who published stories about the bowls club and helped in spreading the word to the local community prior to our Open Days which brought many new and potentially good bowlers.

MInd you the usual short mat bowling has now started in the clubhouse and that continues throughout the winter season, please refer to the short mat page on this site for more information.

Marlow Bowls Club is a marvellous venue at which both men and women can participate at all levels of bowling ability and we try to encompass all age groups, so if you want to get involved with the bowls club phone or email us and we will return your interest. See contact details at the bottom of this page.
