How it all works
The Spiders


If you feel as if your game is out of sorts and you keep making the same mistakes, here's an opportunity to address the problem.

It seems like bowls is the only game where coaching is considered to be for beginners only! In all other sports elite players benefit from coaching advice at the top of the game - so why not bowls? Surely a good coach is one who can spot problems, or see where a delivery action can be tweeked to achieve better results. This does not necessarily mean trying to make you conform to a text book action; more so working with what you've got.

Half an hour with a coach and a video camera and your game will improve.

INTERESTED? Leave your name and contact number at the club bar or just simply turn up on the day.

SESSIONS WITH HOWARD START ON WEDNESDAY MORNINGS BEGINNING 12TH OCTOBER between 8.30am and 10.30am. Come along and take advantage and improve your game!


Latest facebook: Friendly versus Nottingham   - by Danny Brown

Sunday 2nd October saw a terrific friendly hosted by our Nottingham friends and was thoroughly enjoyed. Unfortunately Lincoln was outclassed by a match score of 106 - 160 with only two rinks winning. Graham, Karen, Olwyn were narrowly beaten to the best Lincoln Rink award by Betty, John, Jim and Vi (pictured) . Thanks to Nottingham for a super friendship and a lovely meal afterwards

Latest noticeboard: Didn't He Do Well!! - Local Lad Sam Wins Lincoln Open Singles Title   - by Danny Brown

After a hugely successful and well run event yet again on Saturday, Lincoln has a new star in long time club member Sam Ashton who took the Lincoln Open Singles title in a nail biting finale against Boston's Scott Whyers late into the evening to chalk up his first significant win on the Semi-Pro circuit.

The event was again sponsored by our good friends at Willows Building and Maintenance Ltd who's support enabled us to put a top prize of £800 to the winner with £350 to the runner up and cash prizes down to losing quarter finalists.

Sam is the very first Lincoln player to achieve the accolade of winning our open in it's nine year history. The feat makes for a great story for the club itself and the many people who have mentored Sam along his bowling career - not least his late grandparents Kath and Ron Scatliffe who many regulars will recall brought Sam and brother Richard into the club at a very young age - and latterly a number of top players who have taken Sam under their wing.

Sam has now discovered that he is as good a player as he needs to be to win titles and that bit of self belief that he never lacks on the outside may well now be there on the inside too - so look out for Sam now!!

I would like to add the club's thanks to the umpires, markers and all who helped out on the day including Roger Clark for presenting the prizes and by no means least, to Brian Jackman who's expertise of running events like this can always be counted on. Brian did a super job throughout the day and also managed to report live via the website in the closing stages as many people who couldn't attend followed the final end by end on their tablets and mobiles.

A Brian ably summed up, our Sam beat the National Premier Threes Champion, an ex World Champion and the current World Champion on his way to the title! Add to that a good victory over another of his great idols George Draper and a final victory over a really in form Scott Whyers and it was Sam's perfect day!

Just a word for Scott too, who himself has been knocking on the door for a few years playing solid matchplay bowls and deserves enormous credit for the way he played on the day. On another day it could have been Scott's title but it was to be Sam's day - a great result for Lincoln Indoor Bowls Club!
