Warwick bowls club eyes up its new sponsor

A WHOLE new meaning has been given to keeping your eye on the ball in Warwick.

Members of Warwick Boat Club Bowls Section are set to benefit from sponsorship from the town’s Specsavers branch.

The opticians will be the main sponsor of the club, meaning it can enjoy another season of bowls at the four rink bowling green.

Lena Aggarwal, store director at Specsavers Warwick, said: “We’re really excited about this sponsorship. The club plays an important role in the local community so we’re pleased to be able to show our support so that they can continue to offer members, both existing and new, an opportunity to come and play bowls at what is a fantastic facility.”

Warwick Boat Club Bowls Section secretary Les Anscombe added: “The sponsorship from Specsavers will make a big difference for us and the whole club is extremely grateful. We have a healthy membership of around 90, across all age ranges and abilities, and including generations of the same families – bowls really is a sport for all.

‘We’re very proud of the green that we have but the maintenance is pretty constant to ensure it stays in peak condition for our members to be able to use it. Thanks to Specsavers, we’ll be able to make sure it’s tip top for the rest of the season for everyone to enjoy. Both the men’s and women’s senior teams will also look the part wearing their new competition shirts.”

Members have a full programme of internal matches and competitions, home and away fixtures against other clubs with teams entered in the Kineton and District and Pickering Leagues and representatives playing for county and south Warwickshire.
