It is with sadness that Epsom Bowling Club have reported the death of a longstanding member, player and dedicated servant Arthur Upwood. The following is taken from an  obituary that has been posted on the the club website epsombowlingclub.co.uk

Sadly Arthur Upwood passed away on Tuesday 21st June 2022.

Arthur was Club Treasurer for 14 years & finally stood down in 2012. He had been a Club Vice President also. Arthur subsequently volunteered to look after the Membership Details in 2016. He transferred to Social Membership in 2020.

During his playing career he won Pairs 2001, Triples 1990/2016, Windeler Cup 2010, and was runner up in Triples 1994/2008, Fours 1999/2006/2012/2013, Mixed Pairs 1999/2005, The Windeler Cup 1999/2006/13.

Arthur also was a member of the squad which won the Chrystie League in 2004, appearing 44 times in total in this competition and played in 1 East Surrey League match.

He will be sorely missed.

Our sympathies go out to his family and friends.
