Our Friendly Fixtures
Potters Bar Bowls Club usually has between 65 and 72 ‘friendly’ games (where no cup or progress in an organised competition is involved) where we compete with other bowls clubs each season. Of course we try to win these games but we always remember the friendships created and the good sportsmanship that is essential to these games. Each year we often have a special away coach trip; going for example to play a friendly game against a club on the coast. These fixtures are managed by Match Secretaries and are usually balanced out so that we play both at home and away.
The clubs we play range across those found in the outer fringes of North London and throughout Hertfordshire. We usually aim to travel to the nearer bowls clubs so that we limit the car travel time. The emphasis is upon friendly competition and many of our newer bowlers gain useful match experience playing in our friendly games.
