Hi all,

Mike Ford

It is with great sadness to announce that Mike Ford has passed away. He hasn’t played for the County for awhile now but in his time he was a good supporter of the Oxfordshire Indoor Bowling Association playing 277 times and President in the 2007/8 season.


We would like to convey our condolences to his family and friends.




Roy Pyniger

I have received the very sad news that Roy Pyniger passed away yesterday. Roy was county President in 1996 and played 188 times for the county. He always supported the county and will be a big loss.

Roy was a very good  and competitive player and represented Berkshire outdoors. He was a long time member of Oxford and District indoor club.

I will send his wife Pauline a condolence card from the association.



County Update

Update  Oct 2020

At the moment it is all looking very bleak for indoor bowls this season. All matches against other counties have been cancelled by the opposition.

We have a 3 triples match against the OBA on December 3rd at Chipping Norton which at this moment is still going ahead. If anyone wants to play, please let me know. The Fred Cox trophy match will also take place, it is down for December 12th, but no decision has been made yet to have it then or in the New Year.

I have asked Chipping Norton if they would like a fixture in January, but haven't heard back from them yet. I also intend to ask City and County if they would like a fixture, possibly in March.

I have been in consultation with John Cox the competition secretary and we have decided in line with the EIBA not to hold any competitions this season, but to try and complete last season's competitions in the New Year.

Hopefully things will improve and we all stay safe and well.

If anyone has anything they want to know please give me a ring.

Best wishes,
