Bowled Over!

Bowls Captain Venn Davies writes:

On Tuesday, 23rd May at The Bowring Park, Wellington a mighty struggle took place when we played Probus at Crown Green Bowls. This year, instead of heavy rain, we enjoyed brilliant sunshine. Very enjoyable too was the friendly way in which our Probus friends hosted us and whose partners very kindly provided us all with tasty refreshments.

Croquet win for second team

The team of Jim Tranter, Paul Rhodes, Scott Walker, Norman Quin, Geoff Ward and David Tomkinson played against Wolverhampton St Georges on what was a beautiful Springtime night. Many thanks to Scott and Josie  Walker for hosting the match.


The Club's snooker team played in the District 1210 final at the Sir John Bayley Club on 13th March and achieved a great victory.  

Team captain Keith Mainwaring said, "I have no doubt that the practice games we had at Jim Udale's played an important part in our continued success throughout all the rounds and which paid dividends in winning the final."  

PHF Award at Oswestry Borderlands

Whilst we do from time to time scatter as a group to other clubs, there is another reason we visited Oswestry Borderlands so soon after our last visit.

Sports Review January 2017

Wellington have had a pretty good year.

In the spring 2016 we reached the final of table tennis, but were defeated by a very talented Leek team. We missed our best player in the table tennis in the current competition - we don't have a strong enough squad, yet, to get back to winning ways.

We won the darts in 2015/16 after playing six times and practicing lots of times at the Park. Our dominos and drinking also improved! In the autumn 2016 competition we had bad luck in the darts, we scored well, but the doubles were difficult to hit. If only!
