Uckfield Bowls Club Summer 2021 update

Uckfield Bowls Club’s season has proceeded as near to normal as is possible under Covid-19 precautions.

This is despite the often unsettled, rainy summer which has resulted in some postponed or cancelled matches.

After a strong start in the Mid Sussex League, Uckfield suffered a dip in form and now stand second in the league after the seventh of a ten week season. They had similar results in the parallel John Spriggs League, though Uckfield are currently top of that league.

As the Horam & District League is suspended for this year, all matches in that league are being played as friendlies whenever possible.

A team of Uckfield men are enjoying a good run in the Edward Rowland Cup, having now reached the quarter finals, and a ladies’ team has had similar success by reaching the quarter finals of the Gladys Rowland Cup. Both those competitions are run by Burgess Hill Bowls Club.
