Mick is going to produce a size chart to help members get shirts that fit.

Thanks to the sponsorship of Goode Stone Supplies, members’ first shirts are available at the reduced cost of £10. Further shirts are £21 each.

Good quality fleeces are also available for the bargain price of £20-ish and an example is hanging behind the bar.



The Oxfordshire Bowls Association has approved Adderbury’s new shirts.

Club secretary Steve Goodenough has received a letter from OBA secretary Ian Whelpton saying that our shirt was given the OK at the OBA’s meeting on the 14 March.

The shirts are now registered with the OBA and can be worn in national and county competitions and league matches.

The registration was necessary under national rules as follows.

"Bowls England has given approval for clubs to wear coloured shirts/trousers and skirts (as applicable), subject to registration and approval with the relevant County Association.

If a club wishes to play in coloured clothing then it is an expectation that all participants must wear the same matching design."

The new shirts have been ordered and should be with us in time for the start of the new season.

Thanks to the sponsorship of Goode Stone Supplies, members’ first shirts will be available at the reduced cost of £10. Further shirts will be priced at £21 each. 



The club played host to the 10th Macmillan Mammoth Quiz on Friday 23rd February.

The Macmillan charity supports people and the families of people who suffer from cancer and for the past decade the fundraising marathon has been organised at hundreds of venues around the country at the same time on the same night. 

It holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest simultaneous quiz.

This year the bowls club hosted a local event and the evening was tremendous success.

Some people were turned away as the clubhouse was full to the brim.

Twelve teams took part and the quiz was decided by a tie break question with the winners being a village team called the Rawlings Stones. 

The total raised on the night for Macmillan was £507.

The next Macmillan Mammoth Quiz will take place on Friday 22 February 2019.

In addition to the fundraising, the club recruited several new social members and a couple of people expressed an interest in attending our open day in April. 


WE’LL BE LOOKING GOOD IN 2018                                                                                                          

Forty bowlers attended an Extraordinary General Meeting to decide which shirt we’ll be wearing for the coming season.

A light blue with dark blue trim option was chosen – a decision that will put Adderbury in the same bracket as the top modern-day clubs as far as dress is concerned.

There was support at the meeting for continuing with white shirts, but not enough to win the day.

Goode Stone Supplies have agreed a sponsorship package that will help with the cost of the new shirts.

All players are asked to dress correctly for the matches they play in with regard to trousers, skirts etc and, in particular, footwear. Here's to a successful season.



The club tour to Bournemouth last year was extremely successful and another trip (to another nice place) will be organised for 2018 if enough people are interested. Let Mick Jelfs know if you fancy a few days away in a good hotel with bowls included. Wives, husbands, partners are all welcome.



Guests are admitted to the club only when signed in by a member to a maximum of three times in any one year unless attending with a visiting bowls club or when a premise licence is in force for a ticketed event, quiz night or public event.

This rule applies to members’ husbands, wives, partners, and family where additional membership has not been taken out.

The committee is aware that these rules are being ignored which puts our licence at risk. Consequently, bar staff and committee may request proof of membership where this is in doubt.

Membership cards should be produced when requested. Alternatively there is a list of members in the club which can be checked.

We regret the need for this measure and trust members will not be offended if asked for proof of membership.
