Coming up – Chairman's Cup & AGM

The 2017 Chairman's Cup will be held on Sunday 02 April at Devizes Bowls Club, following the AGM (starts at 2.00pm). This is the last Sunday event of the season and is a friendly and popular event open to players of all levels. It's a handicap event, so everyone has a chance of winning!

Our AGMs are usually admirably short, and there is the added attraction of free bridge and a free tea – a splendid spread, as always.
