Bucks Junior Academy 2021 Programme

Bucks Junior Academy 2021 Programme

This is the fifth year of the Counties Junior Academy programme. Since 2017 we have made steady progress in reaching out to young bowlers in the clubs of Buckinghamshire. Despite the Covid pandemic, we were able to hold a limited programme in 2020 with our Finals Day being held on the 20th September.

The first of this year’s two County Academy events will take place on 27th June.

All young bowlers under 18 years of age, boys and girls, are invited to take part, in what is always a fun day of bowls AND FREE; details as follows:

The major purpose of this email is to elicit YOUR SUPPORT AND ACTION for the first of this year’s County-wide Junior Academy Days.

Date: SUNDAY 27th June 2021


Registration: 09:30 Hours

Play commences: 10:00hrs

Dress Code: Greys and club shirts

Lunch: Free Hot lunch provided for all competitors, funded by Bucks County

Prizes / Roundup: Participants to be travelling home by 3:30pm.

The morning programme will be focused on skill testing and coaching. In the afternoon, the under 14s will take part in competitive bowls, while the "14 plus" members of the JA will take part in matches targeted on developing them for the U25 Men and U31 Ladies squads.

During the day we will present the 2020 Champions with their trophies, delayed due to Covid restrictions.

The immediate need is to gather in the names and ages of your attendees, to allow us to plan the day effectively, and most importantly cater for the starving youngsters (they are always hungry). Can I please ask you to provide these asap to allow us to plan another great day for our young bowlers? Should you have additional questions please contact either myself or Terri as indicated below.

Thank you in advance for the continued support to your young bowlers, and additionally your support of the County's Junior Academy.
