Club Matches


There are club friendly games on Saturday afternoons, Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings throughout the season (April to September). The Saturday games are sometimes for men only, although on some days they are mixed. The Sunday and Wednesday games are mixed. Details of each of these games can be found in your fixture list booklet.

There are Mens and Ladies Notice boards situated at the opposite end of the clubhouse to the bar and these include selection sheets for the next few games. If you would like to play in any game then enter your name on the sheet for that game. Games usually involve rinks (4 persons per rink) or triples (3 persons per triple) and the captain for each game will make their selections from the people available and then put the sheets back on the notice board showing the selected team. If you have been selected to play, then please tick against your name to confirm you are still available (if you are now not available then please tell the captain as soon as possible so that they can ask one of the reserves to play).

As a new bowler, please DO NOT hold back from putting your name forward for selection because you think you are not good enough.

If selected, there is a match fee (currently £2) which covers the game and snacks after the game has finished. Some fixtures may have a salad or hot meal following the match, in which case the fee will be higher.

After a home game, it is customary to buy your opposite number a drink. At away games, they will reciprocate.
