Winter Leagues (Covid Style)

Following our opening on the 10th August, we are pleased that numbers are increasing week on week as many members are returning to bowling.

In addition to hopefully re-introducing the Monday drive and a possible Tuesday evening session, we are looking to get our normal winter club leagues up and running sometime in October if the response is good. Details of how these will be played will follow.

It has not yet been confirmed, but it is likely that there will not be any matches with other clubs at least this side of Christmas and more than likely that these will be abandoned altogether, so in order to keep some competitive play, if you have not played in the leagues before, this is the time to do it.

If you have a team you want to enter or just to put your name on the list for selection, you can either email

or phone 01273 514664 or speak to Traci or Kim at the club to register your name or team.

MONDAY: Ladies league (randomly picked)

WEDNESDAY: Mixed league (teams put together)

THURSDAY: Mens League (teams put together)

FRIDAY: Mixed league ( randomly picked)



As time goes on we hope to be able to arrange some internal matches, which will need to be within the current guidelines, so check your emails, the website and notices around the club.
