Awaiting Draws for Top Club and Double Fours

Membership of the Club is open to all persons regardless of their ability, age or gender. New members are always warmly welcomed. A membership form can be completed on this site and presented to the Club via its post box near the entrance gate or posted to our Club Secretary. If a visitor to the Club shows an interest in taking the game up as an active sport, whether competitive or casual, then current Club members will be only too pleased to advise.

There are different levels of the game for anyone interested in playing. Our Club has casual bowling sessions, coaching, roll-ups and for the more competitive player, we have local leagues of differing levels of competitiveness. We also have official umpires as members of our Club. There are County level knockout matches which could lead to County level play and possibly even National level with England for example. Indeed at least one of members has gone on to play for England in recent years and has won the Family Pairs Competition at National level.

Like many other Clubs in the region we are always looking for new members and we are currently seeking to expand our facilities which could help the Club with its future stability and ongoing relative success. At this time we currently have both men’s and ladies teams and some leagues where mixed play is standard. If you are looking to join the Club there are differing membership levels, details of which can be obtained upon request via completion of the form on the Contact Us page.
