    Lyndhurst BC scoops Drakes Pride 'Club of the Year' Award

    ...

    Bowls England is delighted to announce Lyndhurst BC in Durham has been named ‘Club of the Year’ for 2017.

    The prestigious title, generously supported by Drakes Pride, is awarded annually to the club that is judged to have shown the greatest efforts to promote the club, increase membership and work with the local community.

    Lyndhurst BC, runners up in the competition in 2015, demonstrated continued improvement to beat off stiff competition from runners-up Ilminster BC (Somerset) and fellow finalists Peacehaven & Telscombe BC (Sussex) and Southend BC (Essex) to claim the title.

    Bowls England Chief Executive Tony Allcock MBE said: “The quality of entries this year was once again of an exceptionally high standard. It is clear that many clubs are raising their game with regard to the work that they are doing to recruit and retain new members – most noticeably an increase in the use of social media to promote the sport to a wider audience. The judging panel again had a tough choice in determining the winners across the categories. However, it was unanimously felt that Lyndhurst BC’s work to increase membership across all ages and abilities gave them the edge – indeed our judges in their final report noted that it is clear to see that they intend to maintain a very high standard for current and future members. Finally, I wish to thank Drakes Pride for their continued support of this competition.”

    As winners, Lyndhurst BC will receive:

    • £250 cash
    • Four sets of Drakes Pride Bowls
    • The Tony Allcock Trophy (to be kept for one year)
    • Two Free Tickets to the Bowls England Men’s Annual Dinner & Prize Presentation
    • Bowls England Pennant and Club of the Year Flag
    • Framed Certificate
    • A badge for each club member
    • A match against a visiting Bowls England President’s Team

    As runners-up, Ilminster BC will receive:

    • £150 cash
    • Two sets of Drakes Pride Bowls
    • The D’Arcy Drayton Cup (to be kept for one year)
    • Two Free Tickets to the Bowls England Annual Dinner & Prize Presentation
    • Bowls England Pennant
    • Framed Certificate
    • A match against a visiting Friends of English Bowling Team

    As Regional Winners, Peacehaven & Telscombe BC and Southend BC will each receive:

    • Two sets of Drake Pride Bowls
    • £50 cash
    • Bowls England Pennant
    • A framed certificate
