In Out Shake it all about

Posted by Ray Woods/Les Barrett on October 7, 2018 at 4:20 PM

Locally, there are two types of bowls clubs - crown green and flat green. It is often said that never the twain shall meet. However in a new venture by two of the fastest growing clubs in the area, that is exactly what happened.

 

A 16 strong squad from the Erdington Court Club - which is flat green, went to play crown green bowls away at the Hollyfields Bowls Club in Pype Hayes. The result was a 4:12 win by the home team. However, a second leg held in the Court's 4 rink indoor arena produced a different result - with the Court squeaking a 17:15 aggregate win - in what is now known as the 'In Out ' Cup.

 

Ray Woods a spokesman for Erdington Court explained,

"There are already close links between the two clubs - with a number of our members playing crown green in the summer months - and in the Autumn and Winter, some Hollyfields players join our Indoor Leagues and competitions, when most other clubs have shut down."

 

"Only this week, Chris Hall a leading member of Hollyfields won a first round singles match while playing the first round of a national Indoor Champion of Champions match - representing Erdington Court! He beat Neville Southall of Tamworth Indoor Bowls Club 21:20."

 

"The 'In out' Cup was thoroughly enjoyed by members of both Clubs and is now set to become a permanent feature of the calendar. We see collaboration between local clubs as an essential part of growing interest in the sport - in advance of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022."

 

Both Clubs welcome new members and offer free coaching.

 

Erdington Court have their annual open day on Saturday 13th October between 12 noon and 4pm. Personal tours are also available on request. They can be contacted on 07967 686230 and Hollyfields on 0121 373 1018 or you can visit their web sites at www.erdingtoncourtbowlsclub.org.uk and www.hollyfields.org.uk and also on Facebook at Erdington Court Bowls Club and Hollyfields Crown Green Bowling Club.
