Friendly Matches

The Association organises friendly matches throughout the season with bowling associations from all over the country. Some are neighbouring, while others visit the Bournemouth area on bowls tours.

All matches are organised through the Association's Match Secretary, Peter Holden. Peter's email address is  [email protected]   Peter will be pleased to hear from anyone seeking a fixture with the B & D.

All Players when first playing for the B & D automatically receive a Colts badge. Players who represent the B & D in 4 matches over a minimum of 2 years also receive at NO cost a B & D Blazer Badge.
