Founded in 1907 Luton Town Bowling Club is the third oldest Flat Green Bowling Club in Bedfordshire, having celebrated its Centenary in 2007, yet it remains forward thinking and imaginative. We were one of the first clubs in Bedfordshire to adopt coloured shirts as an alternative to the more traditional white… and we were also the first outdoor bowling club in the county to set up a Web Site.
We will be very pleased to hear from potential new members, male or female of any age or ability. We are a friendly club with ambition, but don't take our word for it, join and find out for yourself.
The outdoor seasoned ended a few monthes ago, Christmas is fast aproaching and the year is almost at an end. It's time for the end of year roundup and summary of how Luton Town BC has done this year. Don't forget you can always check out our previous front page news articles here!
Luton had a cracking year in regards to member growth and competition success, the main highlight of the year though for the club as a whole was Luton Town BC becoming the 2018 Harmsworth Cup winners! We faced Meltis over at Wilstead it was a tough final but in the end Luton came out on top! We would like to thank Wilstead for their hospitality, overall it was a fantastic day. Our gallery will eventually have some of the better photos from the day but you can always visit our Facebook Page to view every photo as soon as they are taken (Pretty Much)!
Success in the Harmsworth Cup was not the only thing we won this year though! We won the County Fours by beating one of our own fours, so yes you heard it right...we had TWO County fours team down at Leamington for the National Finals! Unfortunaly though both teams were knocked out in their first games, the boys have done the club proud and let's try to get two fours through again next year! Luton Town BC also won the County Triples Final and got through to Leamington 2 years running now we have had County Fours & County triples Champions! Whilst we are on the topic of Leamington news, Jim Allen from our club also got through to leamington in the mixed pairs with Dawn Grisley (Potton BC) but also like the other lads lost. It was a fantastic show from all this year and lets hope to recreate the success next year!
In the Monday Night Triples Knockout Cup we also had some more success with our 'A' Team winning that, so a super job there lads! Our annual club singles competition was played this year too and we had over 20 members participate! It was a superb comp and had some cracking games of bowls played. Dare I say it, it's one of the toughest competitions around in our county! ;) If you was tuned into our facebook feed you would know by now who won the competition. It was a final consisting of two Daves. Our club captain Dave Taylor & Dave Whelan faced off in the final battle of the season. Dave Taylor came out on top though and secured the win and is now the 2018 club singles champion! Great job to all who took part this year, hopefully we will see the same numbers (hopefully more) next year.
It has been another great year for the Town and we will be hoping to replicate this year's success next year, so if you want to be apart of our ever-growing team that is friendly and welcomes all skill levels then be sure to drop us a line, either on our Facebook Page or an email/call via our contact page here!
Everyone at Luton Town would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Bring on the bowls! #LTBC #PlayBowls
