One thought on “Ladies and Mixed Friendly matches

  1. Ladies Games
    I am surprised at the number of members who are unaware mixed friendly return matches have been discontinued this year.
    Henleaze, North Petherton and Long Ashton Club Members were really disappointed and unaware this decision had been made. In my view this is a really bad decision and one that should have been voted on by the Members, total lack of democracy.
    This decision has made it unattractive for any prospective new lady members who are still working to join the Prom.
    This season there are only 8 Mixed Friendlies at the weekend. As far as the ladies are concerned there are 13 ladies friendlies, all of which are played during the week.
    In addition 6 Touring sides, all of which are played during the week.
    We seem to have an abundance of Leagues, 14 x Wessex, 14 x Doreen Ralph, 14 x North Somerset Triples plus the Fear and Southey Cups. If I was working and considering joining a bowling club the Prom would not be my choice as the only friendly games available to me would be the 8 weekend games plus Monday nights.
    Not, in my opinion, a recipe for a healthy Club.
