HOT SHOTS CLUB | December 2022
The indoor season is off and running and Hot Shot Club applications are pouring in from the first games of the new indoor season.
This month, we even have one from Spain!
Four members of Mojácar Bowls Club, Steph Cowling, Mike Brown, Joyce Brown, Chris Morgan achieved an eight in one of the local open competitions.
Said Joyce Brown: “There are five lawn bowls club in the area where expats play together in leagues.
“There are also open competitions as in the case of our match in which we achieved the hot shot.
“We have many members who live here all year round but we also have temporary members who come to Spain for a few weeks or months.”
Back at home, teenager Charlie Beeton played a superb runner to take out the opponent’s nearest shot for Lee Calver, Chris Bennett and himself to score a brilliant nine shots in a single end at Ipswich and District Indoor Bowls Club.
The Bowls International Hot Shots Club is famous throughout the bowls playing world.
It was launched more than 20 years ago to reward players achieving a maximum score on one end of a competitive match and remains as popular as ever.
Certificates recognising the feat and signed by 15 times world champion Tony Allcock OBE take pride of place in the clubs and homes of bowlers all over the globe.
Different coloured bowls stickers are also available to highlight the achievement of becoming a member of the world’s largest and most exclusive bowls club.
Apart from having your names recognised in print and featured on our website, why not send in a picture as well of the successful pair, triple or four, along with some interesting and relevant details about your claim.
You can provide a few details on the entry form and email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
