The 2021 season is up and running at Bedwellty Park Bowls Club as they hosted the bowlers from Ynyddu in the first game of the2021 season. Prior to the game the club President Mr Keith Jones paid a fitting tribute to the club members who sadly passed away in recent months . Mr Terry Cavaender , Mr Gwyn Rogers, Mr Jim Oliver, Mr Tony Burston and Mr Jim O’Connor were all members or former members of the club who had given stalwart service to Bedwellty Park Bowls Club and will be sadly missed , not just as bowlers but as good friends and comrades both on and off the green. All present joined in a tribute, with a round of applause in their memory.
The game against Ynsddu was played strictly to Government Covid rules and the Monmouthshire Bowls Association advice The usual four per side has temporarily been dispensed with, with each rink consisting of three per side.
The Ynysddu side have always been welcome visitors to Tredegar and once again the game was played in an excellent spirit. The early rain held off as both sides settled into the game. The Ken Holly rink of John Ridley and club champion Craig Hughes were in good early form and pulled away in the final ends to secure a 16-8 victory.
It was nip and tuck in the early exchanges on the Martin Taylor rink, the front men Malcolm Higgs and Ian Waite matching the opposition two. Tactical sub Martyn Jones joined the rink and they eventually took the game with a 15-12 victory.
Skip Paul Jenkins with support from Steve Jenkins and Darren Bruton kept the pressure on the Ynysddu threesome and secured a victory by 21-12 with an all round excellent display. The one reverse came for the Karl Cooper rink, with Mark Warren and Warren Harries making their Bedwelty Park debuts the rink lost the final ends going down 10-17.This gave the home side a victory by 62- 49
Although it was good to record a victory there were no points at stake and it was good for both sides to get back on the greens after what has been a tragic and traumatic year for many people.
Hopefully we can move forward as a club and continue to build particularly in memory of our former players. We have enrolled a few new members and hopefully they will become a part of our club and enjoy all the benefits the club and the sport has to offer
Sadly the open day which was scheduled for Sunday May 9th has been postponed until further notice. The club pavilion is currently under going renovations which will see a new sitting and viewing area as part of the building When this is completed a new date will be set and all potential bowlers members of the public and our sponsors will be welcome to join us to view the new alterations.
The club’s league programme starts this week with Belle Vue the visitors on Wednesday for a Gwent League Fixture. Both teams travel away on the weekend with the MBA side visiting Blaina and the GBL team travelling to Caerleon.

Unfortunately the weather was the winner this weekend with both MBA and GBL fixtures postponed due to the conditions. The competitive season will now start on Wednesday May 12th with a MBA home fixture against New Tredegar. The season continues on Saturday with the first round of the Welsh Cup, with a visit to Abercarn. whilst the GBL side will play Pontyfelin in Tredegar.
Work has started on the new outdoor seating area which is an extension to the pavilion, this will provide excellent viewing for bowls and a seating area for private functions. For the latest news on the club please visit our facebook page.
A new date for the clubs open day will be announced shortly, this will give everyone an opportunity to visit and view the facilities at the club, not just for bowling but the chance to view the pavilion as a venue for your private functions.
Further information and contacts available on club website.
