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.

We have a Club Shop that can supply your needs at very reasonable prices. Please try out the Bowls before you consider to buy.

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 Update from the Committee

Indoor Bowls Update

The Indoor Bowls committee held a Zoom meeting yesterday morning, June 23rd, to discuss the Guidance to Returning to Indoor Bowls received from the English Indoor Bowling Association (EIBA).

The committee discussed a number of items and procedures that would need to be introduced before indoor bowls can recommence. Discussions are ongoing and more clarity and updates will be provided by the committee as soon as we have them.

However it was decided that when indoor bowls is allowed to start again, as a gesture of goodwill, those roll ups that are allowed will be free of green charges until September 30th. Unfortunately the Government did not include indoor sports yesterday so as such, the indoor bowls hall will remain closed. If you are able to pass on this information to any members not on email it would be much appreciated and it will also be posted on the Manor Park bowls website

Thank you all for your patience and best wishes to all. Take care and stay safe

New wheelchair for Joe

We have recently had some really welcoming news at the indoor bowls club amidst all the gloom!

Joe Peplow now has enough money to fund a new motorised wheelchair. Joe managed to raise £1,000 from his own fundraising efforts – and thanks must also go to Chris Barr-Hamilton, Martin Griffiths and Mike Pilling for all their input and thoughtful hard work in helping to achieve that figure. Joe also received a grant from £1,500 from the English Bowling Association Charity Trust which finally gave him enough to purchase a chair.

The motorised chair will make a huge difference when Joe is able to begin playing again as previously he had to rely on others players to help push him when changing ends during a game. This chair will aid his independent mobility and speed of movement during the game.
