ABOUT RBBG  RBBG, Rochester Blind Bowling Group, is a gathering of blind & visually impaired bowlers, from in and around the Medway Towns, in Kent. We play for fun, though we like to win - against one another or outside opposition!

BOWLS  There is a graphic description of how blind bowlers are given clear directions to help them bowl accurately (How blind people play the sport of Bowls).

LAST END Of course, our members have other interests, including music, art, holidays, visiting interesting places, good food, beer, quizzes ... and much, much more. Below, you will find links to just some of the things we get up to!

NEWS & REPORTS In this section, find match reports from wherever we play a match - and a review of a visit, event or anything achieved by members of our group ... not necessarily bowls.

Gravesham v RBBG Match Report:

We all arrived in good time on what would clearly be a blisteringly hot day to find the green in really good condition. Credit to the greenkeeper, it looked good, and it proved very fast! - Read More, Click Here

We had a busy month in June and were very stretched for numbers at Birchington. - Read More, Click Here

BOWLS  As the summer season comes to a close, we collect our woods and practise our skills indoors, at Prince Arthur Bowling Club. During this time, we play matches against indoor clubs.

During the summer, we are fortunate in having our very supportive hosts at Cranborne Bowling Club. It is so valuable to have such a close link between the two clubs. The summer months are the time when we travel across the county to play matches against several clubs, each year.

COMPETITION The club also runs a number of competitions, throughout the year. Under this banner, our bowlers compete for trophies, both indoors and on the green. The Couples Competition takes place indoor, whilst the Isabella Williams and the John Wadsworth competitions are held outdoors - and the prize in each case is a coveted shield.

Each year, our bowlers are invited to take part in the Gravesham Visually Impaired Tournament, for bowlers based in South East England. In 2014, we were proud to see our club's first winner (Marian Russell). We have also entered teams in VI competitions, in Woking and Hastings.

QUIZTIME Our club issues frequent quizzes. When possible, each quiz is posted online. We have produced nearly 50 original and varied quizzes - look for the latest teaser very soon!

THE GALLERY  The Gallery provides a chance to view photos of our members in action. You can either watch a Slide Show of all pictures or go to the collection to view individual photos and view enlarged images.

  A new departure, in The Gallery, is a page devoted to art based on our bowlers, RBBG Art. Initially, you will see sketches, but later ...

LAST END  The Last End, is what it says, a hotch-potch of miscellaneous items, including interest articles - in fact, anything our members would like to add to the website - about bowls or anything else! Appropriate contributions are always welcome.
