HOT SHOTS CLUB | July 2022

Weโ€™ve had a bumper month of Hot Shot applications so congratulations to all our winners, particularly to Gavin Smith and David Smith of Market Weighton BC in Yorkshire, who have won a gold badge for achieving three hot shots in the same season.

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 worldโ€™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 hotshots@bowlsinternational.com. Pictured this month is Steve Johnson, Leanne Evans and Chris Paddon, of Kingsley IBC, with their Hot Shots certificates.

Happy bowling and good luck!
