Social Life of the Club
A big part of our life at Belmont Bowling Club is the social aspect of
membership. During the year we hold many official events, together with
many un-official get-togethers.
The bowling season runs from usually April/May to September, and we
start the season with some Open Days. These days are designed to
encourage new people to come and meet us, try out bowling and join us.
The season aways ends with our Finals Weekend. This weekend is for our
internal club competitions' finals and to recongnise our successes and
acheivments of the year.
During the year we have barbeques, darts evenings and other events as
they are organised.
We host the Streatham Women's Institute on the last Thursday evening
A few years ago we ran a 24 hour "bowlathon" and rasied money for a
charity. Congratulations to those members of the club who took part and
help us bowl for a whole day and night.
We have a fully equiped club house with changing rooms, kitchen,
seating and a fully stocked bar area.
Which reminds me:
Our bar area with our President helping out
Two men were playing a game of
bowls and a funeral cortege passes by the green. One of the bowlers
took his hat off to it, bowed and
muttered a few words under his breath. The other player looked at him
"That was a nice gesture" … "Well Jack, she always was a very good wife
to me and mother to the kids!"
