Newton Bowls Club
What could be better than playing bowls on a warm summer evening, with a group of friendly, like-minded people?
We are a small friendly club, all members, regardless of ability, play in the matches.
Members are aged from 10-80. Badges are available to all members, who can also purchase a team shirt.
You will find us behind the Village Hall. PE13 5HF.
Our playing season is from April to September.
As a member you can use the green whenever you like in the season for a roll-up on your own or with friends.
We will be happy to see you at any time - either ring for an appointment or if the gate is open just call in but we also occasionally hold "come and try" sessions. Look in local media for when we are holding one. You can always just come and watch to relax and soak in the atmosphere.
Bowls can be provided to start you off, but you do need flat shoes on the green.
If you are a walking stick user you will need a flat spreader ferrule, but the Club owns a specialised wheelchair for use on the green.
Normally, we start the season with an open day in early April: dates will be published in the Bridge magazine and in the Village Newsletter.
An AGM is held in February 19:30 in the Village Hall - The date will be advertised in the Village Newsletter and The Bridge magazine.
The Club holds fund raising events during the year - see local media for details.
We play regularly in local leagues against other local clubs. League games start at 18:30. Match evenings are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Details of all matches can be found on the village website.
When the opportunity arises we play friendly matches against other local Clubs.
