I very much regret to advise that Tony Worboys passed away last Thursday 6th January 2022.
Many will remember Tony, a member for just five years who loved his lawn and short mat bowls. A friendly and such a helpful chap who always volunteered to help the Pavilion and Grounds teams in any way he could.
The funeral will be at the Tunbridge Wells Crematorium on Friday 4th February at 1.45pm followed by a gathering at Hadlow Manor Hotel.
Family flowers only but donations to Hospice in the Weald or Cancer Research c/o Abbey Funeral Services, 173 High Street, Tonbridge, TN9 1BX
Diana has advised that she hopes that some of Tony’s bowling friends will be able to attend. Please let Roger Davies know should you wish to attend the wake at Hadlow Manor to give her a rough idea of numbers for catering purposes.
SOCIAL EVENTS- JANUARY 2022
Due to the current Omicron- Covid 19 situation we have postponed the Rummy, Beetle and Elvis events due this month until later in the year when depending on an improved situation we will be able to rearrange new dates.

2020-SHORT MAT CHAMPIONSHIP
2020-SHORT MAT CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL
Due to the lockdown at the end of last short mat season the final had to be delayed. The final between Shirley Jones and Dave Lane was played yesterday the 13th November. This was a close game with Shirley building up 7-0 lead then back to 13 all after 16 ends. Retired Ladies obviously have the stamina with Shirley winning 16-13 in a closely fought match which was marked by Cliff Kelly.
