Our Club

Our Club is a private members lawn green bowling club founded in 1919.  We are situated very close to the town centre with nearby transport links.  Our facilities include a clubhouse, licensed bar, private parking and of course, a very well kept bowling green.

For non bowlers, we have social membership for accompanying spouses / family of full members.  We also run various activities and social events throughout the year.


The Club has a history of success at both National and County individual and team competitions and members are encouraged to enter external competitions.

We enter mixed and non mixed friendly matches and the more competitive games against other clubs and league matches, both home and away.  We also have an internal league and a “Roll Up” for club members to play friendly games against each other.

Come and join us for a great bowling experience.
