Welcome to City of Wells Bowls Club
Our season began on Monday 19 April at 2.00pm. It was a lovely afternoon playing in warm sunshine.
The maximum 24 players enjoyed a 4 rink triples game.
Due to current Covid restrictions, we are awaiting further guidance to see how the Bowls Club can proceed during the season.
It is hoped that Monday afternoons and evenings will be set aside for club members to join in with club activities - up to a maximum of 24 players per session.
Once Covid restrictions are lifted, the Club will look forward to welcoming new members particularly on Mondays which would be a very friendly way to join in with club activities. Coaching is available to all new and existing members.
The men are having a practice on Wednesday 28 April, starting at 6pm.
The ladies are having a practice on Thursday 29 April at 2pm.
The first coaching session for anyone new to the game will also be available on Thursday 29 April at 2pm.
City of Wells Bowls Club was founded in 1914, moved to its present green in 1915 and is still going strong. We currently have 50 members. Our playing season runs from mid April to mid September, during which time we enjoy a comprehensive programme of matches. The ladies play in a local league known as "The Wild League", the men have one team in both the Somerset County League and the Mid-Somerset League, a mid week league. In addition we play friendly games against local clubs and entertain touring club sides as often as possible. Many players enter County and National competitions and we also have club competitions. Monday evenings see a Triples Tournament, primarily to introduce players new to the game to something more than just a roll-up, but also an opportunity to try things out when it doesn't matter. Our four level 2 coaches are also available on Monday evenings, or any other time by arrangement. Apres Bowls is an important part of our social life, but we also have a regular Card Evening, after bowls on Mondays, and Quiz and Skittles nights during the winter off season, together with a coffee morning on the first Monday of each month.
The Club was awarded Community Amateur Sports Club status effective from 01/03/09. CASC No05327
