The prestigious President’s Invitation Shield match was held on Sunday 21st January at 2.30 pm at Hatfield Bowls Club.  The President, Gordon Burrow, led a team against the four 2023 winning teams of  the Bob Vise Trophy (Welwyn & District), Jones Cup (Welwyn Garden City), Triples League (Potters Bar) & Club Rink League (Batchwood ).

There was a great afternoon of bowling with a lot of laughter and enjoyment across the rinks, albeit one rink took the competitive spirit rather too far and finished a lot after the others.

The winners were Welwyn Garden City and the runners-up Batchwood.  The Welwyn Garden City winning team was: T Seeby, G Frost, I Stone and L Brown. The District Top rink was A Parsonage (North Mymms), D Kilvert (Harpenden), P Stokes (North Mymms) and R Banks (Hatfield
