Social Bowls

Play lawn bowls in a relaxed social setting all year round by participating in social bowls events like Summer Night Bowls (Night Owls) and Winter Bowls. You do not need to be a member to play and new bowlers of all levels are always welcomed.

The club also holds Come and Try Days in addition to our regular social bowls events. This is a great way for those unfamiliar with lawn bowls to learn more about the game. Additional information about our Come and Try Days is available via the Learn Bowls page.

Tuesdays (Pairs)

Tuesday night is our casual pairs format, no need to come with a partner if you prefer not to, instead, most entries are treated as “individual entries” with players being paired by the organiser with a new partner each week. This adds to the fun of the evening and is a great way to meet new people. There is no weekly commitment required for Tuesday Night Bowls, rather come as often as you wish. If possible please register in advance each week using the contact details below.

Thursdays (Fours)

Thursday night is our Night Owls competition for teams of four. Once registered you are required to field a team each week, although the members of the team can vary. We will do our best to accommodate people who are looking to join a team or who require an extra person or two to make up a team. So, get together with some friends, family members or work colleagues and come out for some fun! If possible please register in advance each week using the contact details below.
