Clubbz.com, the UK's largest Sports & Hobbies Website

We couldn't find a website that showed us the clubs and groups we were interested in visiting when looking for a new hobby... so we built one!


Watch this short video to find out what it's all about!

  1. Mary and Ray staged a great fightback after going behind early on, only to go down by 3 shots to John & Jackie Price.   On the other rink, Rita and I found the opposition in no mood to giva away anything, and we were simply outbowled by a very strong pair in Graham Gentle and Roy Mallows.despite giving it our best.

     

  2. With 2 rinks winning comfortably, attention was drawn to the other two. which were close in the early stages before we gradually pulled away to secure maximum points.Well done lads. 

  3. Postponed due to the inclement weather.

  4.  The team is finding things tough in the higher division as are the other promoted team Barton. Both are propping up the league table. On paper this was one they could well win, but not on the night.          Keep at it.

     

  5. A much closeer match than the 6-1 scoreline suggests. With a little more luck it could have been so different. 

  6. on Friday 26th Jun, 2015, 8:00pm - 11:59pm
    Our Presentation Night will be held at the Charlton Liberal Club.
  7. The Team Final was played between the Charlton Liberal Club A and the Royal Standard.

    Despite having only 4 players, the CLC A won 3-0!

    The Team dedicated their win to the late Carol Swann, who sadly passed away last month. It was an emotional win for a well deserving team. Special mention to Angy Chapple for her 3 game shots.

    Well done to you all!

  8. Tonight was the final of the Liz Cusack Blind Pairs Trophy. This is the first year we have played the competition and it was very well supported by our league. Liz Cusack played in our league for 20 years and passed away in April 2014. We wanted to do something to remember her by and this seemed appropriate.

    We had 42 entries and raised a total of £156 for St Christophers Hospice, where Liz was well cared for.

    The final was contested between Linda Emerton and Kath Clulow (both from Star & Garter B) and Emma Nolan (Royal Oak A) and Kate Stepan (Star & Garter B)

    Linda and Kath won a close final. As part of Liz Cusack's team, this was a fitting win for the first trophy.

    From next year, the Winners will chose the Charity 

    Thank you to everyone involved for your support

  11. 6 Types of training partner?

    I can usually tolerate most types of people pretty easily.  There are some that I prefer to roll with over others but there are select types of people I try to avoid.  The way your training partner reacts or how his/her attitude is towards you can hurt or help your game all depending on how you use it.  I’m going to cover a few different personalities that you might be familiar with and the categories I place them under.

    The Mute, these guys don’t usually talk much. They tend to let their Jiu Jitsu do the talking, usually, it speaks for itself!  They spend most of their time studying how to move and what positions benefit them better.  Usually this guy only really talks with the instructor and maybe one other person.  The best part about these guys is there is absolutely no trash talking!  They are very respectful to you as a partner and usually will explain how they got that last move on you.  These are the guys you study and watch. They move more technically than anyone else in the school.

    The Spartans,  these guys take everything as if it’s a battle to the death.  These guys are both good and bad.  If you are preparing for a tournament, there is honestly no one that will help you to focus on your technique more than these guys.  It’s more of a real situation and if you get close to something, they will try to muscle out of it.  This will help you tighten up your movements which will improve your chances of success when you are going for gold.  These guys can be bad for the casual Jiu Jitiero because it usually ends with this guy getting hurt.  The overly aggressive guys take things to far and sometimes this ends in injury for someone.  It can also lead to losing students for fear of “the mat bully”. More often than not these people are referred to as the bullies and a good instructor will calm them down eventually but there are some that can’t be calmed down.  They are a very common part of many different schools.

    The Gumby, the ones that seem to bend a little further than physics should allow.  My opinion, these guys are by far the most fun to roll with.  You think you are getting somewhere, then all of a sudden, you see a foot come from nowhere and you are back in guard.  Yes, pain in the butt, but fun as hell!  These guys help to improve both your smash passes and your attention to what is about to happen.  Inverting and super flexibility is an amazing trait to have but not all of us can do these things very well.  So it’s good to have a training partner like this to help prepare you for one you may face outside your gym.

    The Eeyore, always seems down and never really pushes you to learn anything.  These guys spend more time complaining about injuries or problems at home than they do rolling.  I can’t roll with these people very often but let’s be honest, when you want to choke someone, these are your guys!  They are part of the group though so try to cheer them up maybe they will find themselves something in Jiu Jitsu but don’t be surprised if they start not coming to class.

    The Crackhead, these guys never seem to stop!  Spinning around you like a top, you look left, and they are on your right, next thing you know they have your back and the little birdies are singing to you!  What happened?  No idea, but it was cool as hell!  These guys are fun and frustrating at the same time!  Fun because you never know where they are going, frustrating because well… you never know where they are going!  A great addition to any team none the less!  They help you to develop your instincts better instead of having to think about what to do next.

    Lastly, The Garbage Men, these guys tend to grab every arm, wrist, or choke from any and every direction.  They can take every trashy mistake you make and turn it into their very own win.  Be alert with these guys!  They will make you pay attention to every move you make, if you slack for even a second, they will get you!  This will help you a lot!  They teach you to focus on your position before the submission, which is what we are supposed to be doing anyway.  Very innovative and resourceful people, try to learn from these guys as much as possible.

    Like I said these are just a few of the types of training partners I’ve dealt with so far and my opinions on them.  Everyone is different, therefore, everyone has something to offer you and your game.  It’s important to be open to everyone and explore outside of your comfort zone.  Even the new guys can teach you something about yourself that you may not even know!  Try to help your partners as well, without them you have no Jiu Jitsu!

    Thank you, Roll safe and with everyone you can! Oss!!

  12. Cadets got the opportunity to look round the engineering hanger at Cosford recently - this was kindly arranged by the AEF after flying was postponed due to air traffic control issues - still we got to see a jaguar and a tornado as well as sit in a grob - hopefully next time the grobs will take off.

  13. Cadets and staff recently attended the Royal British Legion Awards Night, collecting a certificate for our assistance with the Poppy Appeal Collection - we are proud to support the British Legion with this collection which supports veterans of all wars. The cadets asked the Wing Commander to have a picture with them.

  14. CBA Festival - Old Winchester Hill Outer Defences, 18 - 19 July 2015

    The Iron Age Hill Fort has extensive outer defences. They extended a mile to west of the traditional ramparts, half a mile to the SE, and 1.5 miles to the NE. It has not been realised that such Iron Age Hill Forts had such extensive defences -- other such forts could do so too. Providing defendable enclosures for their live stock was probably the aim. They form fighting terraces, at least 3 one above the other, with a level way cut on sloping ground, and we expect a palisade at its edge. They are strategically sited, making use of natural escarpments.

    Meet 1030 Sat 18 at car park, Old Winchester Hill, SU645 215. Sign from A32 at Warnford. Briefing and visit remains near the car park. Visitors can decide which remains to visit on Sunday - though do not have to attend on both days (but less briefing on Sunday).

    Bring picnic lunch both days There is shelter for briefing near car park if rain. Surveys will be linked here when available. Overview. Survey of the Hill Fort. Visitors should print these out so they have their own maps for the tour.

  15. Excavations on the new Winchester - Chichester Roman Road will occur on Bank Holiday weekends from Easter to May 2015 on the Chilcomb Zig-Zag near Winchester. Concrete foundations have been found. Over Easter a greater area of the concrete was uncovered, and it was concluded that the concrete originally covered the whole roadway. In the May Bank Holidays we will be looking under the concrete for a suspected Roman culvert.

    Excavations on the Winchester - London Roman Road will occur over the August Bank Holiday Weekend in 2015, near Alton and Four Marks in Hants. There will be some weekends in September 2015, including in the fields depending on the harvest on features associated with the Roman Road, and dark circles which may be Roman dew ponds or earlier hut circles.

    Experienced and novice excavators welcome. A training course is available.
