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 September 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.

Below are the Winter Leagues, next year we hope to reinstate the Friday Night Aussie Pairs League and also offer a Monday afternoon Triples league. There are also Summer Leagues on Tuesday and Thursday Mornings

Indoor Bowls Club Reopening Spring 2021

Further to the government’s announcement and guidance from the EIBA we are pleased to say that we plan to reopen the Indoor Bowls Club as follows:

12th April – 16th May: The Bowls Club to reopen but only for individuals or people from the same household to play on the same rink.

17th May – 20th June: Up to six bowlers from different households on a rink

21st June onwards: Hopefully all restrictions will be lifted and we can return to normality!

Please note that these dates are subject to changes implemented by the government.

We are assuming that initially we will have the same restrictions in place as we had when we opened in October (booking of rinks, signing in, face coverings, sanitising,  placing jack etc) We will advise you as and when these restrictions are eased.

The committee have agreed that for the period 12th – 30th April there will be no charges to play. 

 

From 1st May – 30th September we will introduce a summer membership at a cost of £50.

This will be payable via ClubSpark or Standing Order with five monthly payments of £10.

At the beginning of April all members who have expressed an interest in Summer Membership will be emailed / posted an individual invitation to join. This will reflect any credit due to overpayment in the winter season.

Summer Leagues and Social roll ups

It is planned for summer leagues to commence on Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th May.

If you would like to play in a league please advise Martin Smith (league secretary) if you have not already done so at:  martinsmith217@btinternet.com

It is hoped that organised social group / roll ups will also commence on Monday 17th and Wednesday 19th May.

   For further information please contact:

Yvonne and Mike Cawley:   cawlem@aol.com        (Monday morning social group)

Hazel Bennett:     hazelben2001@yahoo.co.uk        0774 6407646     (Wednesday morning roll up)

If anyone else would like to organise a roll up during the summer please get in touch with any one of the committee.

 

It is hoped to arrange a date for the AGM after June 21st when we are able to meet without restrictions.

Moving forward it is important that we can build up the membership numbers again following the understandable decline during the pandemic. We hope to encourage new members and introduce a coaching programme. If there are any members who are qualified coaches or would be interested in undertaking training to become one please contact the committee.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to Malvern Hills Indoor Bowls Club!
