Update re getting back on the green

The Executive Committee met on Saturday 23rd May 2020 and the following has been decided:-

It has been decided to meet again on Saturday 27th June 2020 to see if there are any further changes to the guidelines already set out. It was felt that it is not safe to resume bowling & one of the major factors is that we still have work going on re the new changing rooms. This involves at least 3 members. As the present guidelines state that only 6 people should be on the premises at one time it was felt that play should not begin at this time.

There is one other major factor and that is that for economic reasons the green is only being cut once a week at present.

Please stay away from the Club.

Lockdown has a lot to answer for!!

The Website now has all the appearances made by the Men in Friendly matches & when each member played their very first match - against which club & the position played.  (This data is for all current Men at the Club & goes back to 1974). You can access this information by going to 'Results', 'Men Friendly' & click on the link for Men's appearances.

 

Website Update - 9th May 2020

More research has revealed dates for Mixed matches.

The first recorded Mixed match was in 1990 (v Leatherhead).  The first entry for Mixed Matches in Fixture books started in 1990.  It is assumed that Epsom did not play Mixed games before 1990.

Records exist for 1990 to 1997 & 2002/004/2006. They are missing for1998, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007 & 2008.  This is a great shame that these are missing.

During 1990 to 1997 the following current members played - Martin Harbottle, Eileen Mills, Roy Ward, George Sperring, Gill Sperring, Dolly Snow, Jan Allum, Clive Allum, Peter Humphreys, Cyril Newman, Tony Jackman, Peter Miller, Derek Hoffmann & Anne Hoffman.  The profiles for all of these have been updated.

 

Website Update

Indoor Friendly Results - matches played during the Winter months.

These have now been updated (1984 - 2019).  The section also shows Appearances made by current members at the Club.

 

Website Update

Player Profiles

These have now been updated & include information re when members played their very first matches for the Club.  Data was only available from 2009 so any member who joined before this date will not see this information. (except ESL matches).  Hopefully, when lockdown is over some further research can be made from the journals kept at the Club to complete this data for all current members.

The Profiles pages have also been altered to save scrolling along to see all information.

 

Men's, Ladies' & Mixed Friendly Matches

Full details of all matches played since 2009 (Our Centenary Year) have now been added to the Website.  These details include all players, match scores & rink scores.
