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, Paul Oakden. Paul is always pleased to hear from associations or bowling clubs who are considering touring and are looking for information about bowling clubs in the Bournemouth & District area.

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.

Paul can be contacted on 01202 468017, or e-mail
