Bowls is an excellent social game for all ages and abilities

We are a long established club and we offer the chance for you to take part in a friendly and welcoming environment in which to participate in an extremely addictive sport. Whether you are new to bowls or are an experienced player, young or old, there is sure to be something here for you.

We know the game has a stigma of being a game for the older generation, but younger players are coming into the sport, but we do need more to keep the sport alive. It’s an excellent social game and an ideal game for the younger element who do not like contact sports i.e. football, cricket, rugby and such, but wish to be involved in a team sport.

People with disabilities may also be able to join in the game, and in some cases be able to play and compete with the able bodied players on level terms. We have a club coach who would be on hand to teach the rudimentary rules of the game.

Our 6 rink indoor bowls hall was opened in November 1986 and the carpet is very accurate and no known runs. It is the only bowls hall in the country with TV screens and Cameras on each rink. We are one on the most successful bowling clubs in the country boasting several National titles.

The main winter season runs from October through to April. Many bowlers move to their outdoor clubs in the Summer, but we have an enthusiastic core who continue to enjoy their game indoors.

We host National/County Games, play internal Competitions, Roll-Ups and Friendly matches against other Indoor Bowling Clubs. Also we run regular Winter and Summer Leagues. All standards of players are very welcome.

Denny Cup – another great win

Many congratulations to the men’s team who achieved a brilliant win in the 4th round of the Denny Cup on Saturday 10th December – beating White Knights of Reading 85-66.

Whiteknights, a large club with many members and some international bowlers, are past holders of the trophy so this was a great victory for Malvern. They are now through to the last 16 and will next play Riverain (Hertfordshire) in January.  This game may be played on a neutral rink due to the distances between the two clubs and we wish them all good luck in the next round.
