  1. The Exiles.
    Dear Member.
    To avoid any speculation and rumour David Jones and I would like to issue the following letter to our membership .
    You may be aware that David and I have attended the last two AGMs of the Old English Bowling League. This League has five teams . Bosham, Emsworth, , Legionnaires ( Hayling)
    The Royals(Hayling),and Belair(Havant), and the teams play league and cup fixtures against each
    other , normally on a Wednesday evening in mid summer.
    We were asked last year if Titchfield would consider entering a team which we declined on the club’s behalf as there was no provision in our constitution for such a decision. Over the course of
    last season however, we considered the matter in more detail which served to confirm our original decision , as there too many practical obstacles for Titchfield and indeed the other members of the League.
    The Secretary of the League, Glyn Childs who has been a good friend to Titchfield over the years
    is concerned for the future of Old English Bowling, whilst David and I would like to play competitive bowls. So together, we have decided to form an independent team , to be known as
    the “EXILES” , whose home ground will be at Belair in Havant.
    We would look to resource our side with players from Titchfield Bowling Club , so consequently
    we would like to hear from those of you who might be interested in joining us on this adventure.
    The Exiles were formally accepted into the League at the AGM on March 6th 2019 and we are awaiting the fixture list to be published. The Exiles will only play League matches which means a total of 10 games 6 of which will be at Belair.
    I would like to reassure all members that this development does not in anyway affect our commitment to Titchfield Bowling Club.

    Dennis Dowsett & Dave Jones.

  5. From the Social Secretary.
    I would like to thank all the ladies who participated in the doubles event-as David said
    at the end of the competition the club has some amazing lady players -but you all know
    that all ready. so many congratulations to Irene Dalzell and Norma Cumming-you made quite a team . I think everyone enjoyed themselves and hopefully the event will become a
    regular fixture. However , this could not have happened without the brilliant organisation of the event by Jim, and Roy’s catering -thank you both so very much- oh , and a big thank you to the men for waiting on the ladies-wonderful.

  6. TBC Website Security update.
    The membership may have noticed that when using the TBC website a message saying the
    site was not secure , although we have not had any adverse problems to date it has been
    decided to put in place a SSL Certificate which will enhance the security overall .
    The wording (NOT SECURE) will not show up in future and we will be able to use the site
    with greater confidence knowing that we have acted responsibly in this respect.
    The transition will take about two days to implement , in the mean time you can still access the
    site as you wish . I will let you know when things are up and running.
    Thank you for your understanding.

  7. For Member’s who have not yet seen the Ladies Day bowling competition results these

    are posted within the Members Area under Competitions in the third sub -heading down on

    this website.


  8. After our resounding win at home earlier in the season , Alverstoke took their revenge yesterday afternoon with a 130 to 74 aggregate win at Gosport Park.
    Thanks to everyone who participated, particularly David & Norma Cumming, who organised our teams.

  9. As a result of recent discussions regarding website security , it has been decided to upgrade
    the TBC site which will give us greater security over the coming year.
    As from today a new security certificate has been applied and is now operational .
    You will notice that a message (Site Not Secure) which showed on the main front page when logging in no longer exists, we should now have more confidence in using this website
    knowing we have this added support.
    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to me I will be happy to help.
    Thank You

    With our league friends.

  16. Committee meeting minutes for the month of August are now available to view on
    this website in the members area seventh sub-heading down.

  17. If you intend driving down the Green today please be aware that with the current weather, the ground will be Soft And Soggy in places on the Carpark. Please drive slowly and try not to spin your wheels as it causes untold damage to the surface.

    Secondly the Worm Cast season is now with us. Please also be aware that if the Casts are really
    wet and you Switch them they will spread all over the green and form mud patches. Its like spreading soft butter on bread and is not satisfactory. To disperse them properly they need to be dry. This of course is not always practical but I ask for common sense to prevail.I do realise it is an impossible Quest but please give your best shot. Thank You

  18. A message from David Jones

    1. If you do go to the bowling green this afternoon do take great care in the car park as the surface is very wet and will easily get churned up.

    Worm casts- These are becoming problematic if still wet. Care and judgement is required when switching not to spread the mud like butter over the surface
