Our Club is small and family orientated with a membership of around 55 people; a roughly even split between Men and Ladies, with around 6 younger players ranging from 8 to 15 years old.
The club is set in a quiet road backing onto the river which forms the Wales / England border and provides a nice tranquil setting for a game of bowls. The green and its surrounds have undergone considerable maintainence over the winter, and the outlook is more open and airy. Many dead trees had to be removed as they were causing damage to the green. The Clubhouse bar has had a bit of a makeover to lighten it up a bit, and it is planned that in the not too distant future, we will open the clubhouse more often and use it as a social club, and not purely when bowling is taking place.
The Club is affiliated to the Mid Wales Bowling Association and plays in that League. The men play a total of 16 league matches while the Ladies play 12 league matches. Full details can be found in the League Fixtures section.
The club also plays numerous friendly matches, some single sex but mainly mixed. These are played against a variety of opposition, giving the opportunity for bowlers of all abilities to play in
Club matches. Full details are in the Friendly Fixtures section.
Additionally, a range of Club competitions are played, from the novice cup through to the club singles championship. Club night is on Monday from 6.00pm onwards during the season, with an additional friendly “roll up” on Thursdays at 2.00pm when tea and cakes are available at half time.
Club members may of course use the green at any time for practice or a game with other members, providing maitainence work is not being carried out.
Non club members may also use the green by prior arrangement and by paying a green fee.
