Pedras Members Page
Pedras Da Rainha Bowls Club was formed in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength with over 100 members since formation. The green itself has been described as the best bowling green in the northern hemisphere. If you take into consideration it is available for play 365 days a year (except for essential maintenance) and no matter when you come to play you will find it in impeccable condition. So much so, when touring teams come, the first thing they do is bend down to touch the grass to see if it is real.
On a recent visit by Bowls England, Joan Balding the Bowls England President simply described the green as “unbelievable”. Algarve Bowls are confident that The Algarve will become synonymous with bowls as it is with golf and Pedras da Rainha Nature, Sports & Beach Resort Complex will be at the forefront of the bowling revolution.
Bowls Portugal Finals Day
BP CHAMPIONSHIPS – FINALS DAY
The finals of the BP Championships were held at Valverde LBC on Wednesday 25th March 2015 when the sun shone from a clear blue sky although the wind was a little keen. Pedras LBC was represented in all five finals and had more players on the green than any other club. Many Pedras LBC members also attended as spectators. Unfortunately, they did not see any of their fellow club members crowned as champions.. However, the Club should be proud that so many of its bowlers had progressed so far and will hope that they will all be back next year trying to go one better.
