In addition to the leagues there are a number of bowling tournaments held throughout the season usually on Sundays.

These vary from hotly contested and prestigious individual or doubles trophies to the more relaxed "round robin" events where players get the chance to play with different partners.

These tournaments are for members only.

Winter Bowling

Where possible the green has been kept open for some of the winter.  Very popular competitions and bowling events take place.  Watch the notice board and members emails for details.


Special sessions for beginners and improvers are run by experienced trainers.  These are available for members and non-members so get in touch to find out more.
