Charnwood Indoor Bowls Club

Welcome To The Official Charnwood Indoor Bowls Club Website


  Last week (20-24 Feb 2023) the CHARNWOOD team of Lyn Else (1), Chris Jackson (2), Mike Barnet (3) and Howard Else (skip) won the DUNWOOD CUP at Potters Resort. Many congratulations to the team.


A great time was had by all our members who attended Potters last week but the week was made even more special when one of our Charnwood teams won the Dunwood Cup competition.

A large number of members of Charnwood went to stay at Potters Resort in Norfolk from 20th February until 24th February with most of the group entering the Dunwood Cup bowling competition.


4 of our teams made it through to the last 8 and one of our teams made it through to the final.


For the first time, the final was to be played on the Friday morning at 9:20. It was usually played on the Thursday evening.

This caused a problem as the Charnwood bus was due to leave at 9:30 and a member of our final team was due to go on the bus. Fortunately "Mr. Dunwood", being present at the resort to award prizes, decided he could delay the bus leaving until after the final, so all was well.


It was a tight match played over only 8 ends. The final score being 5 - 3. All 8 ends being won by a single shot.

There was some great bowling. All ends were tightly competed with very little space around the jacks.


Charnwood got off to a good start 2-nil up after 2 ends. But their opponents pulled back to 2-all after 4.

On the next end Charnwood fell behind, 2-3, but immediately came back to level at 3-all.

It was exciting stuff as Charnwood won the next end to go into the final end 4-3 ahead.

Their opponents had 2 bowls on the jack but a great bowl from Charnwood drew in for shot and the opponents skip was unable to dislodge or beat it. 5-3 to Charnwood and a great victory.


Congratulations to the Charnwood team. A great end to a great week.
