The "Banks Bowling Association" was established in 1935, to spread the interest in the game of bowling amongst employees of the Banks. Various competitions were held between members but these were suspended during the War and never restarted.
Today we have a very interesting fixture list of approximately 41 matches against Counties, other Associations, and various club sides; outdoors and indoors. These currently extend from Croydon and Crystal Palace down to the South Coast, and from Reading to Eastbourne. This is a considerable area which gives most members an opportunity of playing.
Details of our playing programme, along with results of completed matches, can be seen on the appropriate Fixtures page.
Matches are usually comprised of six rinks and followed by a meal and conviviality enjoyed by all.
Because of the distances involved some members are not able to play regularly, or even at all, but sometimes those from further afield do join the annual tour, which is based at a different location each year as selected by the President. This may be a coastal or an inland area, and matches are arranged with local clubs. For further details please see the appropriate Tour page.
