  • Are you 8 - 18?

    If you are aged between 8 -18 and fancy learning a new sport, why not give some thought to the game of Bowls.   We have a thriving Juniors section which is always looking to gain new members.  If you are under 16, (over 16's can do it themselves) ask your parent/carer to drop us a note via our enquiry page and one of our Junior section coaches will make contact to discuss.  If you would like to see for yourself, drop in to the Bowling Green any Friday during the season between 4:30 & 6:00 pm.    Find out about our Junior Bowls group by clicking on this link.

  • The Joker makes an appearance

    Game 5 of our Joker has now been won by Judy Gay at our Race Night Social and she picked up £366.   Having raised around £1900 for the club funds whilst having paid out a similar amount in prizes over the 5 games the joker has become an established fundraiser for the club.  Make sure you are in the next draw of Game #6 by purchasing tickets at the bar when you are in the clubhouse.   Don't miss out if you can't make it to the social evenings - simply purchase your ticket and put your name on the counterfoil - if it comes up, someone will select an envelope for you if you are not present.Stop Press:  Joker is now worth £82 - make sure you get your ticket when next in the clubhouse.

Players required for the indoor match versus Northampton on Saturday 25th January at 2:15 pm. Please contact Derek Helson if you are available and able to play

Season 2019

Another bowling season is drawing to an end with the green going into hibernation after our Closing day on 29th September.

We had a 6 strong coaching team this year which was a major factor in helping the club progress during the season just gone by.  To get some on-line tips and details of coaching opportunities, have a look at our coaching centre.

Our success with the Junior bowlers has seen a number of other local clubs start up Junior sections and we are now working in partnership with Newport Pagnell Bowls Club who are hosting the North Bucks Academy which aims to promote and develop the juniors within our area.

We had a number of our juniors entered for matches at Leamington Spa this year and hope that this is a forerunner of years to come.  

A strong Events Diary and a number of excellent competitive games against other local and not so local clubs meant an active season and with an increasing number of new members, things are looking bright for the future of the club.

If you have any suggestions to put to the Social Committee, or ideas which you think the Promotions committee should consider, please feed these back via our enquiry page - remember this is YOUR club, so your ideas are welcomed..

If you would like to find out more about the club or the game of bowls in general, please also visit the enquiry page where you can give us your contact details and arrangements will be made for one of our committee members to get in touch to answer any questions you may have.
