Barwell Outdoor Bowling Club
Barwell is a friendly mixed bowling club on the outskirts of Hinckley in South-West Leicestershire.
The club was formed in 1926 - yes, the very same year that the Queen was born, which means of course that we celebrated our 90th birthday in 2016, though perhaps not quite in the same style! All our matches are mixed, which is a great advantage to couples who wish to play together rather than be restricted to separate men's and ladies fixtures.
We will play almost 100 matches this season, including a competitive evening Triples League in which we field two teams, and many friendly fixtures. These are played on Saturday afternoons and Sunday afternoons, plus Midweek fixtures which are on Wednesday evenings or Thursday afternoons.There are also internal club competitions, and the opportunity to enter County or National competitions as well. Members can play as little or as often as they wish, and there is ample opportunity for socialising both during and after the game.
During the summer season our focus is on bowling, but during the winter there are monthly social events such as coffee mornings, domino evenings, quizzes or skittles to keep our extended bowling family in touch.
