The Home Page for East Preston & Kingston Bowls Club
Welcome to our website, we only have limited space on this page to tell you about ourselves but you can follow any of the links below or the top horizontal menu for more information. If any of this whets your appetite please contact us.
We had had a slight re-organisation of the pages. The "News" page, which was under "About Us" now has its' own place on the top menu. The Fundrasing pages can now be found under About Us. We have made these changes to give more prominence to the Newsletter, which from now on will be regularly updated.
East Preston Bowls Club is a mixed club, primarily an outdoor bowls club but we also have indoor facilities using two 45ft mats for short mat bowls during the winter months. We have a whole range of social activities during the year many of which support our members during the gloomier days of winter. We are a growing community club in both numbers, and ambition to provide facilities and events which meet the needs of existing and potential members.
New people from complete beginners to seasoned players are most welcome and we provide the woods to borrow. We have fully qualified coaching for beginners and improvers.
With the exception of greenkeepers and cleaners we are a club run by volunteer members who take pride in keeping our club the best in the area. (Well that’s what we think).
Maintenance to our buildings and surrounding areas is also provided by a small band of men who volunteer to carry out various small jobs throughout the year. Of course, we must mention our ladies who provide the lovely refreshments we all enjoy after matches, that are always ready and waiting for us when we come in off the green. They also provide and prepare almost all of the refreshments for our social evenings and lunches. In recent months we have made a small extension to the kitchen facilities to give more room for setting up refreshments.
We would love to meet you, show you around, and let you try bowling on the outside green or on the indoor mats (according to season). Why not come along to our next open day All you need to start is a pair of flat shoes with no heels. We provide free coaching and have woods available at the Club to get you started. The cost of membership is very reasonable so please explore this site and contact us to learn more.
