Easter festivities with the Benitachell Bowls Club


BENITACHELL BOWLS Club were blessed with lovely sunny weather on Sunday afternoon in which they enjoyed the Easter Sunday lunch, including an Easter bonnet competition at their clubhouse.

After members enjoyed a delicious meal, the Easter bonnet parade took place. The high standard of entries made for a particularly tough final decision for the judges.

Everyone deserved to win for their efforts alone, but the first three winners of the competition were Lynda Warnes, Velia Wood and Pauline Griffiths whose bonnets were nothing less than works of art.

The club came alive thereafter as Barry Peters provided the perfect musical backdrop to keep members up dancing all afternoon.

An excellent time was had by all – well done to the competition winners!

Benitachell Bowls Club is the only independent club on the Costa Blanca and is owned and run by the members themselves through a board of directors and the Club Captain, all of whom are responsible for the day-to-day running of the club.

The club was opened on 20th June 1988 with some 150 titleholders (not all bowlers) and just two annual members. The club has gone from strength to strength over the last 26 years and currently has a bowling membership of just fewer than 200, comprising of titleholders, annual and temporary members.

The club has eight rinks, all of which are synthetic surfaced and is open seven days a week for members to practice their skills and play in a variety of competitions, both ‘in house’ and open events.
