News and Notices
 
5 days ago Under-23s Singles Competition
To be held at Slimbridge RBL on Sunday 13th May at 8pm. Entries to Steve Tilley.
1 week ago Open Singles Competition
The competition was held at Slimbridge RBL on 8th April 2018. Just a total of 23 people entered this year.
Following some close games, the semi-finals lined up with Nathan Vines (Bridgetown) vs Andy Thorne (Fusiliers). The second semi-final was an all Loungers affair with Dick Vizard taking on Gareth Langdon. Both semis were close with Nathan getting the better of Andy by 59 to 55. The second semi was even closer with Dick beating Gareth 64 to 62.
The final was played on Alley 1 with Nathan bowling first. After 4 legs Nathan had a lead of 2. The following 4 legs were all close with Dick only able to pull back one pin. The scores were Nathan 8,8,7,4,6,7,5,8 total 53. Dick 5,4,8,8,6,7,6,8 total 52. Congratulations to this year's winner Nathan Vines.
One score of note during the evening was the tie between Tim Thorne (Fusiliers) and Mike Davis (Loungers). Tim had the upper hand for the most part. On the last of the 6 legs, Mike was a fair way behind Tim when he went onto bowl. He had a first ball flattener giving him the spare he needed. He converted it in style with an 18 spare.
Our thanks go to Jim, staff and the stickers at Slimbridge RBL for their hospitality.

1 month ago Mixed Pairs Competitions
29 mixed pairs finally took to the alleys, over two weekends with representatives from 15 teams taking part. With last year's winners getting knocked out in the early rounds, the competition was open and fiercely contested. In many of the games - including the final - the males were outscored by the females. This was also the case in relation to spares with the ladies again outperforming the men by almost 2 to 1, gaining 13 spares to the men's 7.
After two closely fought quarter finals John Handley and Sue Coole (Persuaders) took to alley 2 against Alan and Jenny Lovell (Bangers), while Gilly Stook (Hopefuls) and Dave Morse (Morse Codes) stepped up to alley 1 taking on Lloyd Pennington and Alison Dunne (Moscow Dynamos). After 8 legs John and Sue came out on top with a score of 113 over Alan and Jenny's 100 with the second, very close run game saw Lloyd and Alison pipped at the post by Gilly and Dave with just one pin in it.
The final game of the competition was equally contested, until Sue scored her third spare of the night which neither Gilly nor Dave could match. Sue and John finally triumphed 114 over Gilly and Dave's 108.
Thanks go to Slimbridge RBL, to the stickers for their hard work and to all the competitors for their support. It would be great to see more entrants next season and would urge everyone to consider giving it a go.

Looking for new pins or balls?

Try Skittles Pins and Balls.
Run by the former Secretary of the Stroud and District Skittles League, they use local resources to supply quality wooden pins and balls to teams and venues in BDSL, neighbouring leagues and to other leagues around the south west of England and Wales. They will also skim old skittles balls which may still have some life in them.
