INVITATION CHARITY FOURS
We (Portsdown) hosted an Invitation Charity Fours Competition on 12th August 2018 to mark our move to a new venue.
Sixteen teams arrived from Devon, Dorset, Bristol, Gloucester, Hereford, Wiltshire, North Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex to compete in what turned out to be a great days bowling. Matches were all of a very high standard due to most players being at County level and this produced some excellent bowling. Four groups of four competed against each other as well as two teams from other groups. There were individual group winners but the overall champions for the day were the team 'Woolhope' from Hereford, who despite suffering illness pulled through and won the day.
The Portsmouth based company Gully Howard Technical sponsored the event at our new home, The Springwood Centre, which is a charity run partnership who help the local community and organises a variety of events throughout the year.
We were pleased with how the day went, especially hosting a lunch and dessert for all those who attended and the feedback we have received has been overwhelming and very positive.
Due to the success and the feedback we will be hosting the event again in 2019.
