Retford Bowling Green has an active Ladies section. Ladies have been able to join the club as full members since 1984 – prior to that year they were only able to join as wives of existing male members. The first lady President took office in 2002 since when there have been six other lady presidents.
The ladies take an active part in several mixed leagues and friendly matches. They also take part in County competitions and County matches. We are very proud of Millie Satchell who won the National Under 25’s championship in 2014 and in 2016 was the first lady to win the Club Championship.
Tuesday afternoons are Ladies Rinks afternoons and the ladies also participate in Mixed Rinks and in the various Sunday events and the internal Club competitions.
The ladies are also very involved in catering and in fund-raising and other social events.
New lady members are always very welcome whatever their skill level – coaching is available – and are encouraged to join in all events.
