2023 Club Opening

City of Wells Bowling Club opened its 2023 Season on Sunday 16 April and was pleased to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Wells, Stewart and June Cursley.  Club President Tony Rossiter invited the Mayor to bowl the first woods to officially open the green.  Unfortunately due to the recent wet weather the annual ‘Pinks v Blues’ game, organised by Club captains Emma Morley and Bob Trenchard, was not able to go ahead.  Instead, however, the 40 members in attendance joined the Mayor and Mayoress in the clubhouse for tea and home-made cake.     

The club is always looking for new members of all ages and standards, including beginners.  Club nights are every Monday evening from 6pm.  Coaching is available and can be arranged to suit.  Please contact our web site -  to arrange a visit to the club.

Why not come along and have a go?  Equipment will be provided, please wear flat shoes.  We look forward to meeting you!

All to Play For: Bowls


Bowls England - All to play for Bowls

All To Play For is a new brand campaign for the sport of bowls, reflecting the qualities of our game irrespective of code. With the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games taking place this summer, this video shows the power of a sport which is open to everybody.

Why All To Play For?

Bowls is a sport for everybody. You can play anywhere and at any time, no matter your age, gender, ethnicity or ability. It is accessible and doable.

Bowls makes us feel better. It puts a spring in our steps, delivering real mental and physical health benefits and an essential social lifeline. It is vitalizing.

Bowls is togetherness, family and friends, old and new. It provides a level playing field across ages and genders. Competition amongst friends and family is authentic and clubs feel like a home from home. It is sociable.

Bowls gets under your skin. It is a sport that draws you in. From the local park to an England shirt, the thrill of a perfect bowl remains the same. It is mesmerizing.

About City of Wells Bowling Club

Our 2022 Bowls Season opened on Easter Monday 18 April with the Mayor bowling the first wood of the season.  A good day was had by all (see gallery for pictures).

We are working with the current Covid restrictions.  

Club nights will be held on Monday evenings from 6pm.     

New members are particularly welcome to attend these sessions which would be a very friendly way to join in with club activities.  Coaching is available to all new and existing members.


City of Wells Bowls Club was founded in 1914, moved to its present green in 1915 and is still going strong. We currently have 60 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. On Monday  evenings we have club sessions where games are arranged and it is a prime time to introduce players new to the game to something more than just a roll-up.  It's also an opportunity to try things out new things when it doesn't matter. Our three 'Level 2' coaches are also available then, or any other time by arrangement.  Apres Bowls is an important part of our social life.  During the winter 'off' season the club has Card playing sessions on Monday afternoons; occasional Quiz and Bingo nights; together with a coffee morning on the first Thursday of each month.

The Club was awarded Community Amateur Sports Club status effective from 01/03/09.  CASC No05327
