 A Warm Welcome to our web site:


Founded in 1989, the Club is situated at the rear of the Cowplain Activity Centre and takes pride in its friendly approach in welcoming new members.  

If you require further information and how to find us, please see our contact page.


During the summer season, from early April until late September, the Club enters several teams at various levels in the local leagues, whilst also organising friendly matches with other clubs and its own internal competitions.  

Also, the installation in 2015 of an all-weather surface, made possible by a successful bid for financial help to the Sport England Inspired Facilities Fund, has enabled the Club to provide all-year round bowling.
