Every year the Banks Bowling Association has a Summer Tour to a venue selected by the President. The tour lasts for one week and is at a different location each year - sometimes a coastal venue is chosen, sometimes inland.
Because of the distances involved, some members who are unable to participate in the regular fixtures may be able to join us for the Tour!
For the 2017 Tour the Best Western Tiverton Hotel, Blundells Road, Tiverton EX16 4DB (
visit website) has been chosen as a suitable base for touring mid-Devon.
Past President Barbara Rochford will be The Tour President for the week, in the absence of President Ron Snow, who is unable to come on the tour for personal reasons.
The hotel lies on the edge of the market town of Tiverton in the heart of the beautiful Mid Devon region. Exmoor and Dartmoor national parks are both on their doorstep, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors during your stay!
Set in over 2 acres of grounds, the hotel is just 10 minutes from junction 27 on the M5 and close to both Exeter and Taunton, so whether you stay in and around the hotel or go out and about further afield, there'll be plenty to see.
All rooms are en-suite with a lift to all floors.
The tour will once again be managed by Graham Rogers and there will be a full schedule of matches. As with last year, the Tuesday will be kept free of bowling so that Tourists may have a day off to explore the area.
