How a good website can benefit your club

A client says that their website has helped with their funding efforts. The club has received a letter from the Bowls Development Alliance (BDA), supporting the club’s application for funding to assist in the renovation of their club pavilion. The BDA comments included:

“The club committee and members showed a real desire and commitment to bring about changes and look at new ways of doing things. One such example is the development of a brand-new website which could rival any sports clubs in design and content, showcasing bowls as an inclusive sport for all, and therefore attracting a much broader audience from its modernised and easily accessible online presence. … As an organisation itself funded by Sport England, we whole heartedly support their application …”

New ‘front end’ site for Winchmore Hill Bowling Club

February 2020: Winchmore Hill BC already had a website containing much of the members’ bowling information, such as fixtures, results, team sheets and competitions. But for new and prospective members, they required a more attractive presentation of their club. This new ‘front end’ website takes care of the presentation, while still enabling members to access the functional team information they require.
