East Preston Bowls Club is a mixed club, primarily an outdoor bowls club but with indoor facilities in our Clubhouse using two 45 feet long mats for playing short mat bowls though out 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 the ambition to provide facilities and events which meet the needs of existing and potential new members.
New people from complete beginners to seasoned players are most welcome and we provide the woods to borrow to try the game and have fully qualified coaches for beginners and intermediates alike. Membership application forms can be downloaded on our Membership page. Alternatively, contact us via our contact page (see below)
With the exception of our green maintenance and cleaning, we are a club run by volunteer members who take pride in keeping what we think is the best Club in the area.
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, which are always ready and waiting when we come in off the green. They also provide and prepare almost all of the refreshments for our social evenings, lunches etc.
When Coronavirus distancing rules permit, 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). Whilst playing arrangements up to July 19 are subject to COVID rules, we have our Open Evening on the 30th of June. This is an ideal time to think about taking up playing bowls as a hobby/pastime, out in the fresh air and of course hopefully joining our club. All you need to do is keep checking the Newsletter page on our website for the latest news, give us a call, email our Membership Secretary on our Contacts Page. To start with, you only need a pair of flat shoes with no heels. We provide free coaching and have woods available at the Club to get you playing. The cost of membership is very reasonable so please explore this site and contact us to learn more.
