Wrington Bowling Club plays all the year round on its all-weather carpet. The Club opened for outdoor play in 2000
(see Archive). 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 6 pm on Friday evenings.
Over the winter, the triples competition takes place on Wednesday afternoons and the roll-up on Saturday afternoons.

Did you know…..
Henry VIII was a lawn bowler. However, he banned the game for those who were not wealthy or "well to do" because
"Bowyes, Fletchers, Stringers and Arrowhead makers" were spending more time at recreational events such as bowls
instead of practicing their trade. Henry requested that anybody who wished to keep a bowls green pay a fee of 100 pounds.
However, the green could only be used for private play and he forbade anyone to "play at any bowle or bowles in open
space out of his own garden or orchard." King James I issued a publication called "The Book of Sports" and, although he
condemned football (soccer) and golf, encouraged the play of bowls
Both our Ladies & Mens’ teams are now well into the season and playing well against very strong opposition. We have the
following home league and cup matches coming up and always welcome spectators or just the curious!!
