Parson's Green made history this week, when for the first time in its 123-year history, it played a mixed bowls match.
It's long been a sign of the times that the club in Broomhouse Lane, founded by a niece of 19th century prime minister, Lord Palmerston, would eventually bring both sexes together as numbers dwindle.
Although a male-only match was called off this week, the friendly against Malden BC on Sunday saw three generations of one family dominate one of the historic game's rinks.
The Schwarz family had grandson Steven, mum Lesley, and grandmother Pam doing their bit for PG's brave new world by beating a Malden trio, 32-10 - the biggest win of the day.
The club made their first visit to Brentham BC for 20 years - but were offered no quarter by their Ealing opponents.
PG lost heavily on two rinks, but clawed back some respectability when Gordon Cookson, in only his second game of the season, partnered Simon Jee and Ron Georgeson to a 20-13 victory in the third rubber.
