 NEW MEMBERS VERY WELCOME - from the manager

We are having an Open Day - Saturday 14th September 2019 9.30am to 4pm. Please check here for any updated information.

Please do come along and see us. We are now into Half Year Memberships from June onwards - very reasonably priced at £20 Full Members and £19 for Senior Members aged 65 & over. Our Junior Memberships remain at just £1 for ages 16 and below.

If you don't think the bowls is for you but wouldn't mind using the club's restaurant and bar facilities why not try a Social Membership? We have BINGO sessions every Wednesday and Saturday nights commencing at 6.30 and a half year Social Membership will cost you just £7.50.
  • The Club's playing membership has fallen from 1065 in 2013 to 900 in 2019.
  • The average age of an LIBC member is ever increasing.
  • Quite a few members give up the game year on year due to illness etc.
  • On average, approx 100 new members sign up each year.
  • But only 50 of those remain with us longer than two years.
SO WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?  The Board of Directors and the Club Management Committee recognise that there is an urgent need to both recruit and retain members if we are to sustain the Club. They are taking active steps to address these issues and further improve both our support and facilities for new members including::
  • Agreeing an Action Plan with the assistance of the Bowls Development Alliance.
  • Massively increasing our effort towards advertising and marketing the club in the Lincoln area. 
  • Creating the 'LINK UP' initiative dedicated to assisting and integrating new members.
  • Planning 'open days' where potential new members can experience the club first hand.
CAN YOU HELP? YES! Our first Open Day will be:
'Bring a Friend' on
Saturday 14th September 2019 from 9.30am – 4pm.
Please help us by encouraging your friends, neighbours, family members etc to attend. We require helpers in the following roles (volunteers to Danny Brown or Paul Davies asp please):
  • On Open Day - Club Ambassador – to greet visitors on open day.
  • On Open Day - Coaching Assistant – assisting our coaches on open day.
  • After Open Day - New Member Facilitator – to be a 'buddy' to groups of new members, to provide friendly assistance to help them to settle in, and to try and find the answers to all those questions new members inevitably have!

Game anomalies  
   - by Howard Jarrold

Probably the biggest number of queries that occur in everyday games and rollups, and cause most argument are those relating to playing out of turn, playing the wrong bowl or failing to play a bowl. Invariably when one of these events occur there is more than one opinion as to what should be done, and quite often the loudest voice or the longest playing member prevails. One such event occured a week or so ago when a player failed to play a bowl and the wrong course of action was taken which resulted in a totally different result to that end.
To test your knowledge , a few scenarios for you ....... ....... .......

S.O.S. - Sunday am & Late League Teams Required  
   - by Danny Brown

It's a long time between March (when entries go in) and September (when fixtures come out) and squads can be depleted very quickly through illness injury and bereavements.

Unfortunately for some of these reasons we have two teams that can no longer continue, so I will make an appeal before deleting their fixture lists. Captains in the same division may wish to note the state of play.

SUNDAY AM - Team S12 HARDWOODS in Division Two
New Captain and Players required (Squad of 6 ideally but if individuals are interested please see me and we'll see how many we can get)

LATE EVENING - Team ....... ....... .......
