We have been informed by Wokingham Bowls Club (Host for Sunday's Kennet League Final) that there will be no food availble for the spectators and parking will be an issue. It has decided it best if the KLX folk in the morning park in the club car park and the KL teams and spectators for the afternoon game use the Masonic Parking Centre 100 yards down the road

A great article on the Two Wood Day in the Reading Chronicle (11th of July):-

 

 

TILEHURST BOWLS DUO BEATEN IN HOTLY-CONTESTED FINAL

Sensational weather was matched by even better bowling when 32 pairs, including international and national competition winners, met for the Setfords Tilehurst Invitation Pairs last Sunday.

After getting through the round robin group stages and knockout quarter and semis, Tilehurst's own England international Andy Knapper and Steve Giles and Desborough's Simon Jones and Alan Price, competed for the £1000 winner's prize.

After six hours of bowls in searing heat, the slick green brought out the best in all players with Knapper and Giles taking an early lead.

But clinical bowling from the Desborough pair saw them move into a 10-8 advantage just before the final end of the 45-minute match.

Needing to trail the jack for the two needed to force a play-off, Knapper saw his last bowl slip through the head giving Jones and Price an 11-8 win.

Co-tournament director Adrian Collins was delighted with the reaction from both players and supporters. "The day has been a great success and could become the forerunner for an annual event," he said.

 

"It has certainly added to the already creditable profile of Tilehurst Bowls Club, which provides excellent bowling and social facilities for the community."
