Welcome to Thame Bowls Club's website...
There is nothing better than playing a game of bowls and soak up the sun at the same time !
Our Clubhouse is no longer a prominent feature in Queens Road
A new Clubhouse is being built to replace the old one recently demolished.

 A message here from Chris Shannon, our Greenkeeper & Hon. Secretary.

Avonmore visited this morning and carried out a full programme of treatment.  They cut and slit the green to aerate the roots and sprayed with tonics and herbicides then added lawn sand to kill off the moss that was starting to infiltrate the bare patches.  There is some scarring from the fusarium problems we had before the cold spell hit us, but there is already some good new growth coming through on these bare patches.

We need to keep off the green entirely until after the weekend, then re-commence brushing from Monday onwards.  It will be extremely beneficial to keep as much dew off the grass as the weather warms up again.  The more we do that the better chance we have of keeping any further disease at bay.  We will start cutting to 7mm from now on and we should see some increased growth if or as the weather warms up.

It is great to think this club has such a fantastic 'green team' whose work largely goes unseen when nobody else is about and who oversee the condition of our playing surface all year round.  All club members appreciate their hard work.
