E&DBA got a rare win in their annual fixture against Swindon & District B.A. The margin was a single shot, but that didn't dampen President Bob Worley's delight at the victory.
The draws for competitions 2018 have now been added to this website.
The usual fuller versions and contact information for arranging ties is currently being prepared and will be sent out shortly.
It is with great sadness that we report the recent passing of the wonderful Dot Goodearl.
Ealing & District Bowling Association has lost a fanatical and loyal servant to Bowls in the area. Whilst many of you have been aware Dot had not been well for a while, she continued to be a strong and decisive member of Brentham Bowls Club and Ealing & District.
Dot was such an inspiration for many ladies in the district and was very free and friendly with her wonderful advice, to say she will be missed is an understatement.
Perhaps Dot's greatest achievement on the green came in 2014, when she won the Middlesex Singles. She triumphed 21-20 at Ashford in a final that will long be remembered by those who witnessed it.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ray at this very sad time.
Dot's funeral will be held at Breakspear Crematorium (West and North Chapels), at 11.15am on Tuesday 29th May and afterwards at Brentham Club. It is requested that the dress code be casual and colourful.
