2016 Tour


Chelmsford Bowling Club Tour 2016 to Oxfordshire


The Chelmsford Bowling Club once again embarks on another end of season tour in August this time to Oxfordshire based at the delightful Shillingford Bridge Hotel, Wallingford, Oxfordshire.  This quality hotel is situated adjacent to the upper river Thames and is an ideal location for a relaxing and enjoyable summer bowls holiday.


This season marks the 29th consecutive season in which the club has organised a bowls tour for its members. Previous tours have been based right across the British Iles visiting places such as Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Cotswolds, Wiltshire, Northumberland, Yorkshire, The South Coast, Somerset, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Devon, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Gloucestershire and East Sussex.


Each tour usually consists of six six rink mixed matches with the 2016 tour taking in clubs at Didcot, Oxford City, Marlow, Twyford, Abingdon and Wantage.  The hotel accommodation is selected to suit each member’s requirements and includes dinner, bed and breakfast.  Some evening entertainment is provided by the members as an important part of each tour plus prizes for each day’s winning rink and a competition for the coveted ‘Fred Gibney’ Tourist Trophy.
