The Club was formed shortly after the new hall was completed and has proved to be very popular providing some very pleasant and often entertaining evenings.  Many friendships have been formed as a result of this Club being in existence.  It was decided to join in with the Breckland Short May Bowls League and we have enjoyed some very successful seasons of bowling, having been winners of the Breckland League on three occasions.
This is a very enjoyable sport for anybody of any age, why not come along and “have a go”, you could well get “hooked” on the sport.  You can join in for three evenings for free, and then pay an £8.00 joining fee and pay £1 per session on Roll Up Evenings – a cheap evening out in good company.

The club will not be bowling in the Summer League in 2011, but we will be taking part again when the winter season starts in October, and we will carry on with our weekly roll up evenings on Tuesdays. 

2011 Results

We have now come to the end of our 2010/11 Winter Season in the Breckland League and have finished in third position 33 points ahead of Banham who are in fourth place, 26 behind Connaught A in second and 28 behind Wymondham top of the league.  We have had quite a good season of bowling which has been enjoyed by those taking part.  We have managed to
win the league on three occasions in the past, maybe our turn will come again one day!!! We can always hope.


If you would like to take up the game of short mat bowls, or indeed if you already bowl please feel free to come along on a Tuesday evening at 7.30 p.m. in the Village Hall.  You will be very welcome as we are always looking out for new members.  If you have never bowled and would like to try it out pay us a visit, do not worry if you do not have any bowls of your own we do have some spares which we keep at the hall, or someone will always loan you some to use.
