Dave Maberley

It is with deep regret and sadness that we have to report the sad passing of one of the BTBA’s honorary life members, Dave Maberley.  Dave was a regular tournament bowler when the sport was establishing itself in this country and he went on to help and assist in the running of the Premier Tenpin Bowling Club (PTBC).  Dave served the BTBA on both local and national committee’s and during his time established many leagues that are still running today.  More recently Dave has served on the Bedfordshire Area committee and with his wife Pam established Dunstable’s league program.

The BTBA would like to recognise and thank Dave for his years of dedicated service and pass on our sincerest condolences to his wife Pam and his family.

The 50 Club and Life Members

It is indeed a very special occasion when a member has achieved 50 years continuous support of the National Governing Body of a sport. Therefore, we wish to record the loyalty and commitment of those bowlers who have achieved a landmark of 50 years BTBA membership by awarding them with one year's free membership as a token of  our recognition and appreciation. Many congratulations!

I am very happy to welcome Stuart Watson to the Senior Coaching Team in the capacity of Regional Coaching Manager (South), in place of Mark Cox who sadly had to step down from the role in December.  During the application process Stuart displayed his passion for coaching and is aligned in his thinking to the vision in our coaching strategy.
