West Heaton has a lively, friendly crown green bowls section which enables members of all ages and standards to play socially and competitively.  The green is open from April to October and is floodlit for evening play if needed.
We have a total of 8 teams (men, ladies, mixed and veterans), there are many internal Club competitions throughout the season plus occasional friendly matches against local clubs.
We are very keen to provide playing opportunities for all ages and abilities.  Members can use the green for social bowling any afternoon, except Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
Social Bowling
Group social bowling sessions are held  from 2pm to 4pm on Tuesdays and Sundays during the season. (Some Sunday sessions will be deferred if there is a competition at that time – see Handbook for details. ) All members of the club are very welcome to come down and enjoy a friendly game of bowls. No matter what standard you are, or if you have never played bowls before, there will be members on hand to take you on the green and show you how to play. Please come along and give it a try (racket and bowls members can play without limit, social members can play up to three times a year). Bowls and equipment will be provided if you don’t have your own woods etc There are a number of sets of bowls in a cupboard in the Raymond Prior (Bowlers) Lounge for members to use (labelled “Club Bowls”). See our Coaching page for coaching details.
