The ladies held their Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 24th October. Twenty Seven ladies came to support this meeting which was brilliant. New Officers and Committee were appointed.

The bowling season again passed so quickly, as in other years, proved to be a season packed with fun, friendship and of course lots of bowling! There have been many opportunities to come together both socially and in sport.

Participation in the many varied bowling opportunities was strong in numbers. Ladies not only bowled regularly in the Leagues and in Friendly fixtures, but many represented Chepstow Ladies in County Competitions, Tournaments and in the Welsh Rinks. We also had representatives in County Matches.

Newer members were encouraged to join in the Club Competitions and Tournaments.  Having done so, as a result, there are many new winners' names on our club trophies.

The Casnewydd League Team fought their way through a challenging season, (mainly as a result of the weather and re-arranged fixtures), we finish in the top half of the table by the end of the season.

In the SW & Mon League our Ladies finished top of their section, losing only 1 out of 12 matches, and beating our nearest competitor by 30 points overall.

We have had wonderful support by all the lady members who helped provide a buffet for 70 people for a County Game held on Sunday 28th May and again also the County Triples Competition on Friday 9th June.  Also during the  SW & Mon League matches one of our ladies Rosemary has provided the teams with a brilliant tea which has always gone down well. 

Again, this Season the Men's Greens Committee has done a brilliant job in keeping the grounds and the Green looking good for the whole season.

Our ladies would always welcome new bowlers, we would help develop your skills and coaching from experienced bowlers and you may borrow bowls from the club while you decide what is right for you.

If you are interested please give us a ring or just come and have a coffee with us for more information.
