The Members Cup event is an opportunity to remember and play tribute to members who are no longer able to play or who have passed away.

The Auriol Ladies team triumphed over the Auriol Men in the annual Unity Shield match, played on Saturday 10 August, winning overall, and on three of the four rinks.
Very many congratulations to the team of Ron Weight, Norman Bird, Rosemary Wilman and Di Newman for achieving the Bowls International Hot Shots Award by scoring a 'perfect eight' on a single end in a RDML match against Malden Lime Grove. Very few club members ever manage to score a 'hot shot' in League matches, so this is a significant achievement.
Double Indoor Champion
Our heartiest congratulations to Rosemary Wilman for winning not only the King George Field Indoor Bowling Club's Ladies Junior Singles Championship for the 2018/19 season, but also the Ladies Drawn Pairs title, with KGIBC member Di Double.
Triples Triumph ... again!
The Auriol team of Lynn Dewfall, Brenda Lisney and Karen Munro won a nail-biting contest between top teams in the area in Cheam Ladies' annual New Bowlers Tournament, to emerge as 2019 champions, just two points ahead of joint runners-up Purley Bury 2 and Sutton. This competition has proved a happy hunting ground for Auriol ladies, with the club having won the inaugural competition in 2016, runners-up in 2018, and champions again in 2019.
