The Hove Open

The Hove Open is with us now for the next six days. Good luck to all those who are playing. Big thanks to organisers and volunteers, especially Ben Fairhall and Oli Shaw.

For contact details see this website The Hove Open

There may be places up for grabs still, so come down and put your name as reserve. If you want to join in, please come and help out. Go to the changing room office and let them know you are there.

Very good day. Extremely lucky with the weather, until the last few ends of the final, when bowlers were seen hiding from the elements in nearby bushes!

The clubhouse was packed with members and friends. Good light entertainment. Lovely food on the barbecue and at Alexis’s as usual.

Winners were David Hubbard, Graham Sandercock, Nick Daly and Terry Elston

handkHove & Kingsway put on a fantastic show and beat Horsham 5-0 in a close game.

Some of the rinks were down at the half way stage, but in true H&K style rose to the occasion when needed.

The next round sees them pitched against Haywards Heath & Beech Hurst BC, conquerers of H & K ‘B’ a couple of rounds ago.

Watch this space for more details!

Bowls match

A great start to the season with Streatham Park coming down and having a very good match at Hove and Kingsway.

The rain threatened to dampen the day but a strong resolve and some waterproofs made it a warm and welcome visit.

We look forwards to travelling back to see them at the end of the month.

mayor opens bowls greens

Pete West kindly joined us at C and D greens to officially open Hove and Kingsway Bowling Club for the new season.

We had a roll-up and of course Pete won.

Pete is a strict vegetarian and runs campaigns for better eating. Alexis did us proud by having a fine spread of mostly vegetarian (and very varied lovely) food, with a few sausage rolls for the meaters! Big thanks to the Mayor for getting the ball(s) rolling. He also encouraged unto join in the “Take Part” projects which allows people to sample small tasters of various differing sports.

You can have a look here at what Take Part stands for. I’m sure we will get our bowls club into the agenda shortly.

The Mayor was impressed by our steps for gaining access to greens.
