WORLD CHAMPION 'Les Gillett'

with his championship PAIRS partner 'Jason Greenslade'

 

What a wonderful achievement for a member of OUR club to win a World Title. This is most certainly a first and something to be rightly proud of

 

Les Gillett has been bowling at the top level for more than twenty years now, having played for England at senior level on many occasions. But winning a world title is a daunting task, requiring the highest levels of skill and concentration, and whilst many have almost got there, including Les, the final few hurdles are without doubt the most challenging, but with the help of Jason Greenslade they did it! I should mention that Jason has also been playing at the top level for many years as well, and has been representing Wales at International level for about the same time as Les.

I have personally witnessed many of Jason’s games over the years, and he is a formidable player, so teaming up with a solid mainly “draw bowler” like Les, was always likely to produce some excellent results.

EIBA National Championships

Just a reminder that the next staging of the EBA Finals begins on Saturday 25th March, and we still need additional volunteer Stewards to make the event a success. If you can spare half a day to help out, please add your name to the list at the Reception Desk. Full training provided.

 

English Short Mat Bowling Association

Following an approach by the ESMBA, we are delighted to announce that their 2017 National Championship Finals will be staged at Melton from Thursday 6th April to Sunday9th April 2017 inclusive. This event follows the EIBA National Championship Finals which are staged here between 25th March and 1st April.

 

The programme for the ESMBA Finals is as follows:

 

Thursday 6th April: Singles Finals

Friday 7th April: Pairs Finals

Saturday 8th April: Fours Finals

Sunday 9th April: Triples Finals

 

Unlike the EIBA Finals, where for the first time, there will be only the last sixteen in each competition, the ESMBA bring the last 64 in each competition to their Finals, so on the Saturday, this will mean a total of 256 players taking part in that competition alone.

 

We will post£ further information as and when it becomes £ available
