Bray Bowling News - Wed 27/09/23

Bray's club championship semi-finals were completed last week so the pairings for the finals are now all known. Niall Shelley has continued this season's great form by qualifying for four of them! He is the current men's club champion and will play the previous holder, Eoghain Brady, in the final. The ladies' championship final will be between lady captain, Terri McKeon, and veteran, Betty Keogh. Our South African expat, Chris Fenton, will be hoping to win his first Bray title when he takes on Niall in the 2-bowl singles final. Likewise for relative newcomer, John Gilliland, who will meet Niall in the final of the handicap singles. There are also the 2- and 4-bowl pairs to be decided. The finals will take place this weekend (Sat 30/9/23 & Sun 1/10/23), morning and afternoon, and visitors are welcome to come along to see our best in action.

Thursday last was the penultimate round of the Veterans Leagues. In Division 1 Bray had a good win against Leinster at home, with Terri McKeon maintaining her strong form at lead. Bray won this league last year but will hand over their crown next week to the winners of Dun Laoghaire v Meath on Thursday. Another humdinger will be the relegation bout at Herbert Park who host fellow strugglers, Leinster. Bray visit Greenhills for their final match. Bray's representatives in Vets 2 lost a close match at St James's Gate, 3-1. For their final match on Thursday they will play Ierne in Bray. In Vets 3 Bray returned from North Kildare with just a point, one of their rinks having had the misfortune to drop an 8 in one end. They too will will finish the season with a home tie, against Westmanstown. In the fourth vets league Bray managed to steal a priceless point from a tough match at Ierne in Drumcondra. They are top of the table, two points ahead of Dun Laoghaire, and will look to seal the deal against Westmanstown at home on Thursday. Bray will be missing a few key players but Dun Laoghaire will be away at Blackrock. C'mon Bray!

Getting Started

Club welcome sign.

The club is open all year round with our all-weather green and new members are very welcome.

We cater for beginners or more experienced bowlers. People of all ages and abilities are welcome. Lawn bowls can be a team or singles sport and is a great way of enjoying the company of others. It is a competitive sport, most of our members played other sports such as soccer, gaelic football, hurling, tennis, golf etc before taking up bowls. They are aged from their late teens to late eighties. Bowls is a sport for all people - the club has both Ladies' and Men's Sections. To get started phone Niall on 087 629 6494 or Bernedette on 086 384 2709.
