Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club v Bowls England Select

On June 1st 2018 Bristol St Andrews Bowls Club played hosts to Bowls England in a celebration match to mark the completion of refurbishment carried out under both the Enovert £50k grant, and additional work that had been carried out by its own members. Despite extreme weather warnings for the region, the sun was shining on a very hot day and Bowls England were represented by 24 bowlers from 15 counties throughout the UK, some of whom had travelled from as far as Lancashire. Also in attendance on the day were a number of former members and invited guests from companies that had supported the club and help make the refurbishment possible .

After the match, everyone enjoyed a hot meal and drinks in the clubhouse, where there were also speeches from both John Pearce ( BSA Chairman) and Mr Bill Smith (President of Bowls England).

Bowls England were the winners of a very competitive match.
