It's a Family Affair

Talk about not getting 1up on "'er indoors". The Bailey family have well and truly "kept it in the family" as both Charlie and Rose have qualified for the 2015 National Indoor Champion of Champions Finals

The finals are being held at Warnerís Lakeside Hayling Island from Friday 30th January to Sunday 1st February.

Rose kicks off her campaign on the Friday evening, with Charlie joining on Saturday morning.

Congratulations to them both.

Why not pop over and give them your support?

 


May i wish you and yours all a very Merry Christmas and a good happy, healthy, prosperous New Year
and may all your wishes come true
 
God Bless

For those of you with long memories

Have a look at the Hampshire Middleton Cup Team from 1971 and see who you might recognise or remember. Until this year's success, this was the last Hampshire Team to win the coveted trophy - 43 years ago! Pictured are several legendary Portsmouth players who helped make our area great standing shoulder to shoulder with team mates famous and infamous!

Honours Boards

In keeping with the P&D's attempt to make a record of the history of Bowls and Bowlers in Portsmouth photographs are being added to the various honours boards as and when they become available. It is hoped this will capture memorabilia before it is lost to time and give everybody a chance to put faces to the many names who have achieved success in the sport. It can be nice to see faces of long lost friends and adversaries.

If you have photographs of any individual or team that have been honoured please let the Secretary borrow them so they may be copied and posted. Unless we make the effort now we may never get the chance again.

But please don't stop there. If you have photos of your club, its teams, the members or any events that might make interesting viewing we can add these to our photo gallery.

Let's not lose our history and heritage. Many thanks in anticipation.

The P&D needs your help

Dave Wildman in drag

We are presently trying to capture the history of the P&D by placing on record within this website as much information as possible before it is lost.

If you have anything that might help please let us know.

Things that will be of particular interest are old photos and information to fill gaps on honours boards.

Everything and anything will be gratefully received. Let's list it before we lose it.

     
 

A Big thank you

Our appreciation to everybody who has contributed in our quest to fill in the missing information on Honours Boards. Please keep it coming and we will eventually compile a complete record of all those who are worthy to call themselves winners in this great district.

We hope you find discovery of historical 'artefacts' relating to the P&D interesting.

 

Members of the P&D are actively encouraged to submit reports and photos of their matches, club activities or any articles that might be considered amusing or of general interest.
