We are pleased to announce that we are looking to recruit a full-time Club Manager to coordinate all aspects of the club’s daily activities. As a successful, forward thinking club with an increasing membership, this new post offers an exciting opportunity for the right person.
If you are a well organised, enthusiastic and self‐motivated individual with a good knowledge of office, computer and admin systems and maybe a bowls background, then we would love to hear from you.
The Bowls Shop will be visiting us again on Saturday, 17th February, 2024 from 10.30 am – 2.00 pm.
Bowlswear Direct offer a great selection of bowls, clothing, shoes, bags and accessories. Check out their website www.bowlsdirect.com.
If you want to try out a new set of bowls, or you need a particular bowls related item, then call Chris or Pete on 01483 536337.
They are always happy to help and can bring your order to the club.
Save on postage – Give them a call!

Players are reminded of the following points of etiquette:
- When at the head, bear in mind that some bowlers like a clear view of the rink markers. Stand behind the head, inside the rink markers, but not obscuring the central rink number.
- Do not place your bowls at the end of a rink if it is still being played on. Wait until the previous game has finished before entering rink side.
- Standing directly behind the jack in white shoes can make the jack difficult to see.
- Players at the mat-end of the rink who are not delivering a bowl should stand at least 1 metre behind the mat.
- Call or shout at your own bowls by all means – but do not ‘call’ your opponents bowls to go through gaps, get ‘wrecked’, or to promote your bowls.
- Do not applaud or cheer an unintended bowl from the opposition which results in an advantage to your team.
- Wishing misfortune on your opponents bowls is unsporting.
