The Ladies

Ladies Bowling-

The ladies became full and equal members of the club in 2013, and this has removed some restrictions which formerly applied and has resulted in some competitions becoming mixed instead of men only (eg the Directors Cup). There are still separate ladies and gents times and separate competitions, which should prevent incidents such as the one shown.
The 2019 Ladies Outing to Largs (organised by Rena Jaffrey) resulted in a win for the ladies shown-Mima, Betty, Corina and Sheila after an enjoyable day.

2018 season report

After a lovely summer, we seem to have been plunged directly into late autumn. But at least the good weather enabled our friendlies, both home and away, together with club competition ties to be played when they should have been!

Although our member numbers are down on our heyday, we were still able to enter teams in the Bowls Scotland, West of Scotland, and Dumbarton Associations' competitions - with mixed success , although most of our teams managed to get to round three before sadly being "pipped at the post". However, entering these competitions is a great way to meet other bowlers and perhaps pick up a few tips!

The Club Finals were to have been played over two days in August. But, as in previous years, we have had ladies involved in more than one final, and this year ours actually stretched out over two weeks, with the catering ladies providing a lovely tea at each one.  Our Ladies' Championship this year was a closely contested game between Irene Harrison and Isabel Gilmour with Isabel emerging as champion for 2018.

We are a very friendly club and would be delighted to welcome anyone interested in bowling- we have a qualified coach to help beginners. Contact the club secretary Bill Gifillan by email at secretary@bearsdenbc.org.uk , or me, Mary Cochrane on 0141 942 3812 for more information.

Two of the events which took place during the season were the Ladies Cancer Cup and the Two Bowl singles, in which Christina Kennedy  defeated Anne Blaine in the final.  Christina skipped the Cancer Cup winning team of Joyce, Sylvia and Netta. The charity fund raising day raised a total of 1670, which goes towards funding a research post.
