We have an active Bowls Section in the Club and we play all year round. In the summer we play on the Marriott House Crown Green adjacent to the Sandbach Library on a Tuesday & Friday morning from 10am to noon. In the winter we play short mat bowls at the Yoxall Village Hall in Haslington on a Wednesday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm.
Current situation due to Covid-19
Outdoor bowls has now resumed, as of 1st April 2021, in a Covid secure manner on Tuesday & Friday mornings.
Outdoor season 2021
We started our season with a friendly match against the White Lion at Weston on Tuesday 8th June. Many of our team were unfamiliar with their relatively small, high-crowned green which led to a rather disappointing performance, being beaten by 168-98 points. Better luck next time!
Next matches are:
Tuesday 20th July, 10am vs Marriott House at Home
Tuesday 27th July, 6:30pm at Home to Weston – revenge time!
Wednesday 25th August 2pm vs Marriott House Away
