Welcome to Sawtry and District Bowling Club website.
Our Bowls club offers a family environment for all to enjoy, as our membership includes those at both ends of the age spectrum who are physically able to bowl.
The club began back in 1975 with the green opening in 1976. More can be found about the club on our History page
The Club is affiliated to Huntingdonshire Bowls (Association) and Huntingdonshire Bowling Federation offering a variety of County games and competitions across both Codes of play. Many of our members have become County Champions and represented Huntingdonshire on numerous occasions in the respective National Finals where all County Champions (and Runners up for Bowls England) compete against each other.
We have 3 men’s teams, 2 ladies teams, and 3 over 60’s teams (mixed) all playing in the Hunts league on various set days/nights of the week.
We also play ‘friendly’ games against other teams in the area and always looking for opportunities to play further afield.
Sawtry is also very proud to be the envy of most clubs in the area with it thriving junior section with well over 25 members aged between 5 and 18. You can see more about them on our ‘Juniors’ section page.
Bowls offers people a chance to meet other people, both locally and around the county, in varying ways. People can turn up and play socially and maybe enjoy some refreshments in our licensed bar before, during and after the game. Equally, you can enter in some more competitive competition games with the chance of becoming club champion, or even County and National champion.
At Sawtry we also offer some varied entertainment throughout the year, with events such as a family day when anyone can come along; bingo, quiz and race nights, and our infamous Xmas Lunches and ‘Burns’ dinners. Various events and dates can be found on our ‘events’ page.
Interested in having a go?
Then why not contact us on our ‘contact’ page, or pop in when you see the gate (opposite K Coopers garage) open, and we will see about getting you on the green and bowling a few bowls to see if you enjoy it.
Whilst evening games are normally scheduled matches or competitions, we do play on a Tuesday afternoon (from 1.45pm), and most Saturday mornings (10.30) when new people are always welcome.
We are always looking for new members – of any age and ability.
If you are interested in joining the club you will learn more about the game from our coaches and members. You can learn about our the etiquette of the game and about our dress code although we don’t insist you rush out to buy all the equipment you need first off. We have a supply of bowls you can try using, and flat-soled shoes/trainers will get you started.
