About Us - new page
The Club was formed in 1968 and has 6 rinks. Currently, the Club has over four hundred members from all over the Island, with ages ranging from 9 to 90+ years. Visitors are welcome and rinks are generally available most weekdays and weekends. A selection of woods and shoes are available for hire if required.
New members, whatever your level of experience are always welcome. If you are new to bowls, come and give it a try with one of our EBCS approved Coaches. There is absolutely no obligation to join, however, if you would like to take it further, the Club has a program of regular coaching sessions.
Touring teams are also welcome and the Club has a busy program of friendly matches against clubs visiting the Isle of Wight. If your club is planning to visit the Island and would like to arrange a match, please contact us via our email on [email protected] or telephone the club on 01983 564336.
