A look back in time to a special day at Sidmouth Bowls Club in 2008
With no end to the current lockdown we are all enduring as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, it means there’s no immediate prospect of bowlers returning to action for the 2020 outdoor campaign.
Our local clubs would now be a hive of activity as bowlers adapted from the indoor season to the outdoor conditions.
What makes it all the more frustrating is that, this early season, the weather has been glorious and there would have been plenty of action already on the green local clubs.
However, play there is not - well currently - and so, to get our bowls fix, we must rely on looking back at bygone seasons and today we bring you a picture gallery from 2008.
