TAVISTOCK Sir Francis Drake Bowling club held their opening day on Saturday.

The club was formed more than 100 years ago back in 1914 at the beginning of the First World War. Forty two members enjoyed the first game of the 2024 season in good weather. The club has a very busy season ahead of them with more than 40 mixed friendlies and 36 league matches already scheduled to be played.
