2 Bowl Pairs

32 players took to the green to compete for the club 2 bowl pairs trophy.

The pairs were all drawn from that hat and with the sun beating down a fantastic tournament played out.

4 groups of 4 teams played 3 games of 6 ends with the winners of each group progressing to the semis.

such was the competitive nature of the groups, two of them had to be settled via play offs as pts and shots could not separate them.  One of the groups actually had a 3 way tie.

Once the play offs had been decided, the semis between the Lindores duo and S fisher and D Bell ended with a comfortable win for the Lindores team.  Ali White and Gregor Taylor played well to get past the pair of Ann Gilfillan and Podge Somerville.

The final produced some great shots with both the leads playing well.  Pup Lindores saved his best bowls for the final and played some telling shots under pressure from Ali.  In the final end, Ali and Gregor found themselves 3 shots down and with the final bowl tried to burn the end.  Ali played the strike and unluckily only managed to bin it gaining only 2 shots .

Final score R and E Lindores 8 - 7 G Taylor  & A White.

 Jedburgh Bowling Cub AGM Wednesday 24 March 2021 will be held via Zoom

Dear members, 2020 has been a year none of us will forget in many ways, but on the playing side it is the first time in our history that no ties were played. We were however able to commence play in the second half of the season, albeit in a very restricted and controlled manner, and for this we are grateful to the hard work by Tony Turnbull in creating a risk assessment allowing safe play within the Scottish Governments guidelines for sport.

This year's AGM will unfortunately not be done face to face but will instead require to be done through Zoom (this is an app which can be played through laptop, tablet or mobile phone, once you download the app onto your chosen device. Should you feel that this is an inappropriate way to hold the AGM please let me know as soon as possible but in order to hold our AGM in some fashion a majority decision will prevail?


The Agenda will be along the following lines, and if you have any comments or questions please come back to me before the meeting and we can arrange for a Question & Answer (Q&A) sheet to be compiled and sent out to everyone.

During the meeting you will be asked to turn on your video symbol so that you can be seen. Everyone will be "muted" by David to ensure no background noise, with only the speaker "unmuted". Should you wish to ask a question please either press the hand icon or simply raise your hand so that you are visible to the camera and David can then "unmute" you.

Happy New Year to all our members.

 Lets be honest, 2020 was possibly the strangest year in the the clubs 162 year history. Coronavirus (Covid 19) has it the world hard and it certainly looks like 2021 isn't going to be plain sailing either.

The Pandemic looks like it is going to prevent the return to normality for the bowling community over the next 12 months but the Jedburgh Bowling Club will strive to provide as safe an environment as possible for its members and we look forward to welcoming you all for the 2021 season.
