Wrington Bowling Club
plays all the year round on its all-weather carpet. The Club opened for outdoor play in 2000
(see
). The carpet was renewed in 2012 and its speed now more closely matches that of grass. New members and
guests of all ages are always welcome. Please come along and try your hand at the game. Club equipment is available.
During the Summer season, we run a weekly triples competition at 6pm on Tuesday evenings and there is usually an informal
roll-up at 6pm on Friday evenings.
Over the Winter, the triples competition takes place on Wednesday afternoons and the roll-up on Saturday afternoons.

                                        The big open day!!!! Its what you have all been waiting for. At 2pm on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April, Wrington Bowls Club will be holding a grand open day. This is a great opportunity to try your hand at bowls and we promise no hard sell. Why not pop along to the bowls rink to give it a go and enjoy free refreshments. We are hoping this will be a great family day out so why not bring along other family members and have a game against each other. Did you know! British officers installed bowling greens in the American colonies in New York in 1725 and Port Royal Canada in 1734. The earliest documented use of the word 'Jack' in Bowls is thought to have been by Shakespeare who used it in Cymbeline (thought to have been written in 1609) when one of his ‘characters’ exclaimed, "Was there ever man had such luck! When I kissed the jack, upon an up-cast to be hit away.” 2018 Season We are now preparing ourselves for the forthcoming season and will be publishing de-tails of fixtures, competitions and progress in the next journal. We are also hoping shortly to launch our own Facebook page so please keep an eye out for this and be sure to ‘like’ us. Players Needed We know there are lots of shy people out there and others thinking it’s not for me. This is a sport open to all age groups, so if you are interested why not come along for what is an interesting and highly sociable sport. And remember you don’t have to wait for the open day, just contact a club member. Andy and Wendy Tandy 01934 863684
