Bowling Section

Innellan Bowling and Tennis Club aim to provide members with a full Calendar of Bowling events throughout the season commencing on Opening Day through to Closing Day in September. These are made up of a full cross section of games including:

Ladies and Gents Competitions: - all members being able to play at any time of day throughout the week except some Thursday evenings when Gents Hyslop League and Ladies Triples League teams have home matches. There is also a Seniors Mixed Triples League with games being played every second Tuesday morning commencing June. See Events Calendar for dates when home league matches are scheduled.

Championship Singles, President’s Trophy, Vice President’s Trophy, Secretary’s Plate, Gents Pairs, Ladies Pairs, Mixed Pairs competitions - these run throughout the season with Finals Day at the beginning of September.

The Club also hosts one day events either on a Saturday or Sunday throughout the season these include a Gents Open Pairs; Gents’ Open Triples; Mixed Rinks; Ladies Day and an annual Friendly Challenge Match against Colintraive BC.

In addition wappenschaws are held on Tuesday evenings (6.45pm start) and Wednesday afternoon (2.00pm start). On Tuesday evenings teams are made up from a ballot of members drawn on the night and play for points throughout the season with the player having the highest number of points at the end of the season being declared the winner. On Wednesday afternoons teams are similarly drawn from a ballot of members but no points are awarded.

We were so happy to have our kindred bowling friends from Upper Cowal, Bogleha, Kirn & Hunter's Quay, Dunoon Argyll & Ardentinny Bowling Clubs to our Green on Wednesday 11 August to play the first round of the Cowal Championships. It's been a long time coming & it couldn't have been a more perfect night. After a day of heavy rain & winds, the sun shone for us and a cruise ship sailed by.

Its just great to see things returning to normal, albeit slowly. We still have to be careful, sanitizing, using track & trace & face masks when appropriate but there is light at the end of that very long tunnel.

We look forward to a full calendar next Season & taking part in The Dunoon Tournament again, but until then, keep safe everyone.
