Club Background

Founded by local residents in 1947 on, what used to be, a disused rubbish pit. Regular maintenance and upkeep of the green by our members has produced one of the best greens in the area. The clubhouse is also considered to be one of the finest equipped in the area with a bar, changing rooms and modern kitchen, toilets and changing rooms.

Membership

New members are always welcome. No experience is necessary, as tuition by a qualified coach is available and encouraged. This tuition is free of charge. Bowls are also provided for those who want to try various makes before buying.

Or if you just want to give bowls a try without committing yourself, come and visit us on Monday afternoons, where in our Monday club, non-members are always welcome.  See our Monday club page.
