Annual Match

On Saturday 9th July the annual match between Men and Ladies took place. In true gentlemanly style the Men let the Ladies win the match 95 shots to 53.

(In truth the men were slaughtered !!!)

Well done the Ladies Match concluded with a Fish and Chip supper



We pride ourselves on one of the best greens in the County and in a beautiful setting. There are six high quality rinks and we offer club sessions, internal and external leagues to both English Bowling Federation and Bowls England Codes. Suffolk County regularly takes the opportunity to stage prestigious County games on our rinks. The Club has provided many County Presidents as well as the English National Indoor President and the National President of the English Bowling Federation.

We are fortunate to have a national qualified coaching team (both codes).

Outdoor bowls are played under the rules of the English Bowls Association and the English Bowls Federation, on a County-standard green.

We have two teams playing on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings in local and West Suffolk leagues. There are leagues for men's, ladies' and mixed teams.

Everyone also has the opportunity to enter County competitions.

Friendship bowling takes place for everybody who wishes to, on a Tuesday and Thursday morning, at 10.00am, with a friendly drive every Friday evening at 6.30pm.

The greens are available from noon, daily, and can be booked for practice roll-ups, providing they are not required for Club matches.

Dress is white above the waist and grey below, with flat-soles shoes.

Please see the Fees page for the latest rates.

Coaching can be arranged and bowls provided.

Various friendly matches, against visiting Clubs, are arranged during the season (April to September), with our own fun-days.

The Outdoor Bowls Section is run by a committee, details held in the office, from whom any further information can be obtained.

New members are always welcome.
