On Saturday July 28 Rye Bowls Club will host their annual tournament, one of the most popular in the region with 24 teams being by other clubs in East Sussex and Kent submitted (plus 2 reserves as the event is oversubscribed most years). This is an all-day event in which the teams (excluding Rye) compete to win the trophy and prize money.
The teams are treated to lunch and refreshments throughout the day and are also invited to participate in theTombola, and various Raffles. A share of the profits from this event is donated to two local charities.  Members of the public are welcome to come and watch and have tea with us.
 The members of Rye Bowls Club make an early start from around 6:00 am., setting up the marquees, tables and chairs for the competitors and the various stands for the raffles, book stall and tombola.  There is also great activity in the kitchen preparing the lunches and refreshments for our visitors.
The event starts at 9:30am and ends at about 5pm with prize giving.
The next Home match will be on Sunday July 8 against Hollington Old Church Bowls Club, a enjoyable day is anticipated as Hollington are a very friendly team.
