The Summer season starts at the end of April and ends in late September. New members can enjoy a "roll up" any afternoon or evening on weekdays - dress code is mufti but not jeans. On most weekends the green is used for matches against other clubs or club events.
We have two weekly games for newer bowlers - a fun “Drive” each Friday evening suitable for novices and a Tuesday Triples League afternoon match for those who have gained some experience - ideal for those wanting to play in the future for the Club in matches against other clubs; or in Club competitions; or just having a competitive game against other Club members.
We welcome all ages from 12 upwards (for young bowlers we have a designated Child Protection Officer).
There are also a number of social functions through the year and Social Membership costs £10 p.a. - this entitles you to play up to 5 times a year in social events or roll ups.
We are a private club and our facilities do not specifically cater for the severely disabled. We have a large car park and are conveniently located for public transport.
