Bungay Bowls Club set out their 2012 lawn season schedule

The end of April sees Bungay Bowls Club commence their 2012 lawn bowls season, which features seven teams in four leagues and half a dozen county cup competitions.

During the off-season the club retained all of its sponsors and added Dingles Toyota based in Lowestoft to that list as sponsors of score cards.

The season starts with the third Triangular Charity Tournament between Bungay, Earsham and Mettingham on Saturday, where a local charity chosen by Mettingham will receive a donation from the day's events. Mettingham have chosen their local church's tower repair appeal as the receiver of the donation.

Competitive matches start the following week with the club's two teams in Division One of the Halesworth Three-Wood League playing each other on Friday evening.

The next day the men's team, captained by Roger Bullen, face Melton in the Suffolk Bowls England Bert Edwards Cup. Both teams went out in the second round last year.
