The next event at Handy Cross is Australian Pairs competition on Sunday 19th August


What was programmed to be a team 5’s game on Sunday 15th July, ended up being played as Australian Pairs.

Despite clashing with the Football World Cup Final, the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final, and a local competition - the Holmer Green Masters, twenty two stalwart players from Bucks, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire took part in what turned out to be a lovely game of bowls.

Eleven Pairs played four games each (some even played five), over six ends and were awarded 3 points for a win and one for a draw. The top two pairs were awarded prizes and it was generally agreed that the day was a success, despite the diminished numbers.

Well done to all who took part and congratulations to the winners.

During the summer,  we continue to bowl with a series of fun and friendly games organised for the benefit of all registered members.

We are also invited to take part in similar events organised by Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire Associations, and they in turn are invited to ours.

This means that we can enjoy some competitive bowling with an element of fun, and the chance to win some prizes.

If you are a registered member of any of the above Associations, and would like to take part in these events, just contact your local Association secretary for full details or send us an email on  shortmat.bucks@tiscali.co.uk.

A list of some of these games can be found on the Diary 2018-19 page.

We will try and keep you up to date with all of these events and hopefully maintain your interest with some pictures as we go along.

Meanwhile, we would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our website and we hope you will continue to support the team of willing volunteers who keep all the County Associations running.
