Once again, Erdington Court's 6 all weather rinks were completely full at the weekend.
This time it was 'Captains' Day' - marking the end of the outdoor season before the Club moves indoors.
A mixture of 48 Club men and women took to the greens. This season marked another innovation at the Club - with not just 1, but 3 Captains taking charge!
Ray Woods, a spokesman for the Club said,"To be Captain for the whole of the season is a very onerous task as we play so many matches. As part of our Club development programme, it was decided to split the job - and it has been such a success that it is being repeated during the indoor season. The 3 Captains were David Ballantyne, Peter Yates and Roy Webster - all from Sutton Coldfield."
The Club has also announced that it has a new sponsor - Davenport Family Research, who take the slog out of tracing your ancestors by doing it for you! The Club currently has 9 local sponsor companies and is expected to announce further investment in facilities shortly.
Applications for indoor membership are now being accepted. You can call 07967 686230 or visit the Club's web site at www.erdingtoncourtbowlsclub.org.uk and follow them on Facebook: Erdington Court Bowls Club - and on Twitter: @bowlsflat.
