Club Competitions

There are many club competitions, and these are usually held on a knock-out basis
culminating in the Finals Weekend which is held at the end of the season in April.
Outdoor Finals are held in September. Examples of the various competitions include
Singles, Pairs, and Novices Singles.
Members enter the competitions at the start of the season, the Competition
Secretaries complete the draws, and the draws are posted on the notice boards.
Members are expected to complete their matches on or before the due dates on the
sheets. The first bowler/team on the sheet is known as the challenger and is
responsible for organising the match – agreeing the date/time, booking the rink, and
arranging for a marker for a singles match.
The winner(s) of each competition receive a trophy – usually a cup. The cups are
engraved with the names of the winners and, for the main competitions their names
are entered onto the Honours Boards located on the walls throughout the club.

County Competitions

There are many competitions run by Berkshire County Bowling Association.
Desborough is affiliated to BCBA, and members can enter most of the competitions –
these include singles, pairs, triples, and fours/rinks. Outdoor is affiliated with RCBBA.
There are also several county competitions that are club based and teams for these
competitions are selected by the Selection Committee and obviously Desborough will
try to enter our strongest teams for these both Indoor and Outdoor.

National Competitions

Again, there several competitions held at the national level that members are welcome to enter each season.

Annual Tour

Frequently the club visits Potters resort where the World Bowls Championship is held
and seen on television. Desborough were well subscribed last year and won the Top
Club Cup held during the week. Desborough returned to Potters for the finals in
December but sadly lost
