Everything you Need to Know

When do we play?

The Bowling Season

We play men’s or mixed friendly games on Saturdays, and ladies friendly games on Wednesdays or Thursdays.  All are afternoon matches.

In addition to this, we play in two leagues; the Wednesday league for the men and the Friday night league for the ladies.

On Thursday afternoons we hold an informal Club Afternoon where we arrange games between ourselves.

The bowling season opens in mid-April and continues until mid-September.

Club Competitions are held with the winners receiving trophies at our Presentation Night in December.  New members are encouraged to enter .. we all started somewhere!

We play skittles in the clubhouse once a month during the off-season on a Saturday afternoon.
