2020 – This year the usual league fixtures did not take place. We were able to run friendly games, league games, club knockout and two Open competitions:

The two competitive club competitions were arranged by the STBA secretary, Paul Unwin – a three bowl Triple Pairs league and a Knockout competition, using the same format.

League competition – Jarrow Borough B were victorious in the league, winning the final against Westoe at Whitburn. Jarrow Borough A finished third.

The Knockout competition was won by a team made up from all of the Jarrow clubs, beating Hebburn Sports at Hebburn park in the final.

The Jackie Lawton Memorial Pairs This was run on a round robin basis and was won by Billy Fuller and Andy Gibson.

The Jarrow Singles – This was run on a sets round robin basis and was won by Maurice Dunlop.

Evening and Saturday jumbles – These were played throughout the season which was of benefit to the club as we attracted a lot of folk who had never before played bowls.

Monday evening Singles league – This proved popular with members, it ran for more than twelve weeks and was won by Alan Lawton.

Friendly Games – There have been many friendly games arranged between Hebburn, Hebburn Sports and Seaton Delaval clubs as well as Open days and other Open competitions at Hebburn, Jarrow and Walker.

Next year – It is hoped we can arrange trips to Scotland, Darlington and other venues for friendly and competitive days out.

Exercise routines – Many thanks to Victoria from Victoria’s Academy of Ballet who ran a warm up warm down session for our members that also covered posture and delivery exercises.

Green Maintenance – We are now responsible for the maintenance of the greens and our members must be commended on the excellent commitment given and the sterling work that has been carried out. Ted and his garden elves have kept the greens and surrounds in superb condition, going the extra mile by cleaning the paths with wire brushes.
