Membership

Membership of the Club is inclusive and open to everyone interested in the game of bowls. Prospective members do not need to have any previous bowling experience. The Club has an all-weather green which is used all year and a short mat for indoor bowling during the winter. Applications are welcome at any time throughout the year.

Anyone who is thinking of taking up the game of bowls is welcome to visit the Club. Friendly roll-ups between members take place on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoons throughout the year (2pm summer, 1.30pm autumn/winter), and potential new members are welcome to turn up for a game. We can provide bowls for you to use, but we do ask that you wear flat shoes such as trainers. Alternatively, you can come to our Friday night social evening in the Clubhouse from 7pm, or telephone our Secretary who can tell you more about the Club, and who will be happy to arrange for someone to meet you at the Club at a convenient time. The Secretary can also send you an application form if you decide that you would like to join. See our Contact Page for phone numbers.

If you do join, the Club will arrange for an existing member to show you the ropes until you have settled in. Bowls coaching will be available.

The club has the following classes of membership (current annual subscription rates are shown in brackets):

  • Full (£100) - reduced to £65 for over 80s
    A full member has access to the Club and its facilities at all times, and will hold a security key to gain access. Full members are encouraged to take part in Club matches, once they have acquired a basic competence. All full members are required to buy a Club shirt but the first shirt is 50% subsidised by the Club. The subscription is all-inclusive, and the Club does not charge match fees.
  • Winter (£50).
    Winter membership is valid from 15th September until 31st March, and is for those who wish to bowl short mat inside or who want to join us for our Sunday competitions on the outdoor green during the autumn and winter.
  • Student and Junior (reduced fee)
    Student membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 who is in full-time education. Junior (free) membership is open to those under 18 and in full time education. There is restricted access to the Club for Student and Junior members.
  • Social (£12)
    Social membership is for those who would like to join in the Club's social activities but do not wish to bowl. This class of membership is sometimes used by non-bowling partners of playing members.

Please note that we are a self-help club and all able-bodied members are asked to sign up for one or more of the Club's duty rotas: clubhouse cleaning, green maintenance, gardening and bar duties.
