This competitive group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 10.30am in the Exning Road Club enjoying 2 or 3 games each session.
Most of the group have been playing for some time now, but even if you have no experience and would like to give this very social game a try please contact the coordinators or just come along and join us - see the calendar for details.
Fun and games were had on December 19th with lots of Christmas jumpers on show – check out the U3A Facebook page for photos!
Things return to normal in January with meetings on 9th and 23rd of January.
Hopefully we may be able to arrange some friendly matches this year. Why not come and join us for some gentle exercise.
REPORT FROM POTTERS NOVEMBER 2019 TRIP (See Pictures!)
Twenty of the Carpet Bowls group recently returned from a midweek break at Potters in Norfolk where they participated in a competition among a total of 112 couples.
Most of our couples managed to win at least a couple of their first round games, in the round robin format, with one couple being eliminated in the first of the following knock out rounds.
When not playing bowls they were able to take part in other activities such as crazy golf, quizzes and bracing coastal walks. In the evenings some spent the evening in the theatre seeing a show, whilst others kept the competitive spirit alive and got together to enjoy Rummikub, Bananagrams, Cribbage, Yahtzee and Triominos.
This is the third time we have enjoyed this break together and plans are already afoot to repeat the visit in 2020. If you would like to join us you do not need to participate in the bowls competitions as there are plenty of other activities on offer throughout the day.
