Team Wraysbury compete at Potters
Wraysbury sent a contingent to the famous Potters Resort in Norfolk recently along with our friends from Staines BC to take part in a week's tournament against clubs across the country.
They all had a very enjoyable time and Team Wraysbury had the pleasure of playing on the same rink as the top players used the previous week in the World Bowls Championships.
Welcoming in the New Year
Our annual New Year's day Roll-up was again well supported and members enjoyed the session in cold but calm and bright weather.
After play, plenty of cheer was had in the clubhouse with food and drink aplenty!
Happy New Year!
