ALDERBURY BOWLS CLUB – Brief History of the Club

The club offers membership to young (8 years) or old and is pleased to give new bowlers the chance to try the sport on our club nights, or by appointment. To encourage new players to the game the club offers the first 5 goes free and further coaching by a Bowl England registered Coach.  We pride ourselves on our equal opportunities policy and have facilities for the disabled.

Umbrella

During the bowling season (April to Mid September) Tuesday is club night starting at 6.15pm.  Anyone, regardless of ability and who is interested in trying the sport, is very welcome.

Skittles

Activities

We also hold a variety of other activities during the year, including Quiz Nights, Race Nights – with a supper, coffee mornings and midday lunches.  All of these activities are advertised locally and on this website. These are open events not just for members but for all the local and surrounding village communities. So why don’t you come along and spend a couple of enjoyable hours in pleasant and warm surroundings and have a chat and a laugh and see what else the club has to offer. (History of the Club)
