HOT SHOTS CLUB | November 2022

We have three gold badge winners this month – congratulations to Gay Allen, of Bembridge BC, and Colin Davidson and Kevin Stollery, of St Ippolyts BC.

Elsewhere, Richard Thomas, Simon Smedley, Jim Djouma and Tim Maynard achieved a hot shot on their club Rosedale BC’s men’s tour to Dorset and Wiltshire, while Graham Thorne, Ernie May, Jenny Ward and Paul Allo, of Cowes Medina BC on the Isle of Wight, claimed an eight while on tour in Eastbourne at Royal Sovereign BC.

A first season of bowling hot shot was won by Ali Uygur, of Shiplake BC, and Grange BC’s Martin Webster, Ian Box, Bob Page and Phil Bale had a full house on one end during a gala match at Earls Barton BC to mark their centenary.

Meanwhile, two rinks from Writtle BC – Merv Little, Brian Island, Dave Spence and Kevin Haselgrove and Chris Clarke, Brian Murphy, Paul Brandis and Graham Harrison – had hot shots in a three-rink match at RHP Chelmsford.

With the indoor season now underway, Mike Jafkins, Barry Tovey and Alan Taw, of Victory IBC, had a hot shot on the first end of the first game of the season, while Jim Dean, Martin Webster and Peter Dymond, of Thornfield BC, also had a hot shot in their first match. The same Martin who was successful at Earls Barton.

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 hotshots@bowlsinternational.com

Happy bowling and good luck!
