Ingatestone Bowling Club
Welcome to Ingatestone Bowling Club
We are an hospitable lawn bowling club, founded in 1912, and always open to new-comers of all ages (14+) and abilities: both men, ladies and youth leagues. We are a fully inclusive club and welcome everybody.
At very reasonable club prices, we offer everything from sociable friendly games with other like-minded local clubs, to matches in various competitive leagues for the more ambitious and with qualified coaches on hand to help you hone your skills. The choice is entirely yours. Members also have access to all the facilities at the adjoining Community Association including a comfortable bar in which to celebrate our wins, forget defeats or simply pass the time of day.
Our bowling green is probably the village’s best-kept secret, located as it is, behind the tennis courts at the back of the Community Association car park in the High Street.
To see if you might like to play bowls with us, please phone any of the following contacts or use the enquiries links throughout this site:
Bernard or Jean Palmer on 01277 525994
John or Jill Snell on 01277 352719
Peter or Brenda Dodson on 01277 623144
These members will arrange for you to visit the club, meet some of the members over a cup of tea in the pavilion and to try your hand at this fun & fascinating sport. Or just come along to the green on any match day (most Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday or Sunday afternoons) in the summer when somebody will be at hand to answer questions.
We have in the past offered free taster sessions to the general public every Sunday in May but, due to the coronavirus restrictions on legal gatherings, they have been suspended for 2021. However, if you want to have a go at any time, please call one of the above contacts and we can organise a special session for you (either alone or with a partner in the same household bubble). No equipment is needed as we supply everything: all we ask is that you wear flat-soled shoes or trainers.
Alternatively, you can contact us via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or via the 'Enquire Here' button at the top of this page
We hope to welcome you soon.
