Phoenix Trophy

Saturday 1 October 2022 saw the Dorchester Men beat Dorchester Ladies 126-70 in the contest for the Phoenix Trophy.  The Men now lead the Ladies by 5-4 as winners of this annual trophy.  The Phoenix Trophy was set up to celebrate the re-opening of Dorchester Bowls Club following an arson attack in March 2011.  The year's event was sponsored by Somerleigh Court Nursing Home whose representative Angela Roberts took many photos which will be available soon.  Details of Somerleigh Court can be found on their website.  A big thank you to Angela and Somerleigh Court for their continued support for the event.  Also thank you to Joyce in the kitchen, Robbie in the bar and everyone who turned up and made it such an enjoyable afternoon.
