Holtwhites Bowls Club
Holtwhites v Bowls England
Centenary Match 19th June 2015
Through its various previous guises as G.N.A.A, B.R.S.A, Holtwhites Bowls Club celebrated its Centenary in 2015. On the 19th June we played a Centenary match against a Bowls England team. The events of the day were preceded by a buffet attended by The Worshipful the Mayor of the London Borough of Enfield, Councillor Pat Ekechi, this was followed by the Mayor cutting a ribbon to formally open our Centenary Garden. The day concluded with an evening meal for Holtwhites members and the Bowls England team.
We are a very friendly club based in north Enfield with a good mix of competitive and social bowlers, we have entries in National, County and local competitions and leagues. All members are encouraged to participate in internal competitions and to represent the club in external competitions. However, those colleagues who wish to bowl on a purely social basis are considered equally valued members of the club.
Monday evening is 'Club Night', where teams are drawn to give a good balance of experience, competing over a number of weeks on a league basis. The majority of people stay to enjoy a social drink after the game and some Mondays there is also a meal in the bowls clubhouse.
There are 'more casual' roll ups several times a week, when new bowlers can find themselves paired with and learning from the more experienced players in the club.
New members of all ages and abilities are very welcome and coaching sessions are run on Saturday mornings and other times by arrangement.
During the winter we have social events in the main clubhouse including quiz nights.
Membership of the bowls section includes social membership of Holtwhites Sports & Social Club.
New bowler or very experienced, major competition standard or purely social bowler - the main goal at Holtwhites is:
"for everybody to enjoy their bowling"
