Specsavers Salisbury sponsor new mats

Five Rivers are proud to announce the sponsorship provided by Specsavers in Salisbury. Specsavers have been very kind to sponsor the club for the purchase of new mats to be used on the bowling surface – as you can see from the pictures below they are top quality and the club is very proud to show these off! The Club Committee have invited staff from Specsavers to try out bowls at the club and hopefully pictures will surface shortly!

If you would like to sponsor the club then please do get in touch via enquiries@fiveriversibc.com
