To All Thurrock Bowling Club Members and Social Members,
Hope everyone is healthy and following the governments guidelines on isolating, this is just a general message/update regarding the bowls clubs and bowling green.
All public sites and the bowls green will be shut until further notice but with being a self managed green, the clubs will still be maintaining the playing surface so when the government advise us, we will be able to commence immediately. The green should hopefully be available for use beyond September, so with a later start to the season the clubs will be able to still bowl later into the year.
Thank you for your patience and hope everyone is doing well.
You can now find all club friendlies and events on the website (under friendlies heading), the calendar has been updated with with all league games, friendlies and you will also find (under matches & events heading) complete Mens and Ladies Essex Schedules.
Hope you all find these easy to understand.
You can now find all 2020 league fixtures for both men and ladies teams, under team selection (just hover over and a drop down bar with fixtures and team selection will appear).
I will be putting all club friendlies and county schedule on in the comings days.
Thank you, for your patience.

The defence of the League Knockout continues after a closely fought semi final against Springhouse Bowls Club at Mopsies Park this morning. The final will be played against Aveley on Sunday the 8th September at 10am at Aveley Bowls Club.
Well done guys and let's get it won and go out with a bang!
In what ended up a tight run league again this year, Drums have managed to say farewall to the Thurrock League as champions.
Well done to all the members that played throughout the season with all 12 bonus points being won it saw us over the line. With a starting squad of 18 to pick from, the sad passing of Mick Bonson and various sickness and holidays, it's not been easy but it looks like we just about made the right decisions as a selection committee to give the club another title.
Onwards and upwards to a new chapter as bowlers of Thurrock now.
