A basic guide for St Crispin bowlers.
(Don't panic- we want you to succeed.)
Dress – Friendly matches
Appropriate shoes, white trousers or skirt and white/club top for most Saturday and Sunday matches. (Unless instructed otherwise)
Dress - Club competitions and league matches.
Appropriate shoes, grey trousers or skirt and white/club top. (Unless instructed otherwise)
Bowls x 4 – probably best to get a bag to keep them in.
Cap – keeps the rain off your glasses or on rare occasions stops the sun blinding you.
Club or white top.
Diary – lots of fixtures to keep track of.
Hand towel – to wipe any grass clippings and debris off your bowls & dry your hands.
Shoes – flat soled.
Wet proofs & a cardie.
White (x 1 pair) & grey (x 1 pair) trousers or skirt.
Non essentials – but you will need them as you progress, and if you act as marker for any matches.
Always bring some along.
We have a reasonably stocked fridge in the pavilion and licensed bar in our clubhouse.
For home matches, we have a fantastic caterer who is able to cater for celiacs, vegetarians and those with a nut intolerance, and many other requirements.
Visiting teams should make any dietary requirements known in advance through the usual channels.
