The BB&DBA (Bromley, Beckenham & District Bowling Association) has been established for a number of years – 2017 was its 70th Anniversary.
PWBC have supported the Association for many years and have had 4 past Presidents. They are B. Shwartz in 2007, A. Danson in 2011, Mrs L Morgan in 2013 and R. Johns in 2020 & 2021.
The BB&DBA have a week’s Tour every year and this years tour will be to Torquay Devon.
Throughout the year – Summer and Winter seasons – there is a Fixture List which is readily available. PWBC are affiliated to the BB&DBA and therefore any member can participate in the matches. 2021 was a wonderful season with the majority of fixtures fulfilled.
The venues are somewhat different to PWBC matches. During this Winter season there are visits to Swale, Prince Arthur, Mote Park and Stone Lodge.
PWBC do enter a BB&DBA competition – the Ladies’ and Men’s club champion winner will enter the ‘Champion of Champions’ and this year it is Jean Collins and Michael Cooper, so please support them in their preliminary matches. Obviously if either win their way through to the Finals I’m sure they would appreciate your support. The Finals day will be held at HSBC in September.
The coming Outdoor Fixture List which shows match dates and required details will be placed on the notice board in the Men’s changing room (and there will also be a Fixture List on the Ladies’ board) should you wish to be selected to play. The matches are normally over-subscribed but rest assured you will be selected if you enter a number of matches.
Should anyone require any further information please do not hesitate to give Reg Johns a call.
