Avons Skitttle Team
originally played at the BLUE BOWL Hanham, but when their alley "fell
down" in 1970 something, the team moved to the Swan who were able to
accommodate them, and played under the name of Blue Bowl Exiles. This
name continued for a while until some modern thinking people came along
(us)! and decided on a more appropriate name
because of the river running at the bottom of the road and the name has
stayed ever since.
They play in the Fishponds and District Front First Skittle League Div.
Over the years they have gained promotion to the 1st division 3 times
but came back down the flowing season except 2 years ago when they
managed to survive for one season in the hallowed heights of the 1st.
Currently (Jan 2013) they are in the top half of the 2nd Div.
