Bournemouth Tour 2018


Members of St. Albans & District Bowls Association attended a five day
"Tour of Bournemouth"  
from 25th - 29th June 2018.

The coach left early on Monday but due to severe traffic delays (par for the course on the M25!) we arrived five hours late at New Milton Bowls Club. They were very thoughtful and in view of the warm weather remade the sandwich lunch, after which we played our first game of the tour.

Accommodation was in the Ocean Beach Hotel, Bournemouth and with wall to wall sunshine it was like being abroad.

Different bowls matches were arranged, at clubs, including Southbourne, Boscombe, Kings Park and The Argyll. Plenty of variety and St. Albans & District won overall.

Our thanks to Jan Southwell President of SADBA, for organising the entire
"Tour of Bournemouth" and for awarding prizes for top male and female bowlers.

For non bowlers, there was lots to do, including a wide variety of shops in Bournemouth, or even a dip in the sea, so something for everyone.

Jan raised over £400 for his charity, Fight Bladder Cancer
