Pre-season Practise

On Friday 19th September the county will be holding a pre-season practise at the Bromsgrove Indoor Bowling Centre from 6 – 10 pm. The squad is urged to attend this session and get some pre-season practise within the teams that they are likely to play in when the season gets under way.

2014/2015 Season

The County starts its 2014/2015 season with a squad of 30 players and will be fielding a team to compete in the ESMBA premier inter county competition in Group 1. The other counties in the group are Gloucestershire,Herefordshire and Wiltshire.

It is the aim of the County to increase the number of registered players to 45 – 50, which would enable the County to field an “A” team in addition to the existing premier team. Both Gloucestershire and Herefordshire within Group 1 field an “A” team. To meet the proposed increase in registered players, the County Association is encouraging clubs and short mat players within the whole of Worcestershire to consider registering with the County.

There is a real opportunity for new members to participate in inter county competitions in addition to those competitions promoted by the County Association itself. Anyone interested in becoming a registered player with the County is urged to contact the County Captain or any of the County officials.
