Sad news emanating from our friends at Santa Maria BC Spain: despite having a fantastic Greengauge Needle Punch surface to play on the owners decided to close the facility in 2022 for non-bowling reasons.
A sad day for our Sport and the members of Santa Maria, and the loss of a great bowls facility.
Before the new Greengauge Needle Punch surface was installed in 2017, the Club were struggling to attract and retain bowling members. Mr & Mrs W members at Santa Maria commented “the fantastic new Greengauge surface has had an incredible impact this last year. We have attracted 25 new members who are all loving their bowls” Running at around 13.5 seconds it was described as “the perfect SPEED for our members”
Greengauge successfully tendered for two jobs in Hong Kong at the end of 2017. The prestigious Hong Kong Football Club Indoor bowling Green along with an outdoor facility in the New Territories at Tuen Mun. HKFC decided for an Indoor Blue woven surface and Formula One underlay.
After installation the green was timed at a perfect 17.4 seconds. Just what the Club were looking for. The job was signed off on the 22nd December allowing the Greengauge staff to be home for Xmas. The Tuen Mun installation was completed in 4 days at the end of January. This was a replacement surface and underlay the Club chose the Greengauge recently upgraded Needle Punch outdoor surface which after install was timed at 13 seconds which was the ideal speed for the bowlers using this facility.
