Ever fancied having a go at bowling during the closed season?

Well if you have, there's the perfect chance to try it this coming Sunday (16th December) at a Mid Shropshire League club.
For Shawbury-based Elephant & Castle - who play in the Dennis Lewis Thursday Division - will host round 10 of the North Shropshire Parks winter series

"It’s open to any bowlers from any area," stressed series organiser Jamie Brookes.

"And, although it's entry on the day, due to the recent and steady high levels of competitors, early entry notification is really much appreciated to me on 07522-624773.

“Hot food will be available throughout the day – hope to see you there!”

Report time is 9.30am and the draw for 13-up handicapped round robin groups will be made at 9.50 with play from 10. The 32 best performers will then play a straight knockout.

Entry costs £7 (juniors are £4) and £3 per entrant is paid out in prize money each round.

And, to add a bit of fun at Shawbury, Jamie added: “Sunday is also ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ with a prize on offer for the best one chosen by the judges.”

Round nine at Prees last weekend was won by Stuart Rutter of Wrockwardine Wood, who beat 16-year-old Susie Lawson (Bowring-Prince of Wales Hotel) 13-12 in the final.
