About Us

Membership:

We currently have approximately 80 members of the club, including life, associate and social members. 

Bowling Season:

Our outdoor season opens in April each year and finishes at the end of September. Many club members also play indoors in the winter at local indoor bowling centres.

Matches:

The majority of our matches are played with mixed teams of mostly triples which are friendly fixtures against neighbouring clubs.

We also have a number of separate midweek ladies' and mens' matches and we participate in 3 midweek league competitions.

We organise a number of internal competitions each year, culminating with a Finals Weekend at the beginning of September.

Coaching:

We are actively seeking new members. Arrangements can be made to introduce newcomers to the game and the club at any convenient time.
We also have qualified coaches who will give free coaching from 6:00 PM every Tuesday evening during the outdoor season when we hold our Club Night.

Basic Requirements:

Normally you will need a pair of flat-soled, heel-less shoes, and, of course a set of bowls. Don’t worry if you don’t wish to go to the expense of providing these for yourself until you have made up your mind whether or not bowls is for you. We can make these available for practice sessions.

The dress code for club matches is more standardised. The requirements are normally ‘blues’ for all matches (blue trousers and club tops).

Matches can still continue when it is raining. Obviously very heavy rain can stop play, but, if it is not too heavy, we do often continue when the rain starts. For this eventuality we have wet-weather clothing – usually white waterproofed top and hat.

Facilities:

We have a pleasant clubhouse adjacent to the green, with changing facilities for men and ladies, a kitchen, and a well-stocked licensed bar.
The bar is open whenever the club itself is open, and you will find that the charges for drinks are extremely reasonable.

Club Night:

Tuesday evening is our Club Night when new members are particularly welcome.
Members normally play in ad hoc roll-up games or just watch from the terrace over a chat and a drink.
The evening usually ends with a barbecue on the clubhouse terrace.

Social Activities:

During our off-season (October to April) we have an active social life with short mat bowls, darts and bridge sessions. We also have monthly social events, usually with supper.
