Everyone is always welcome at West Backwell Bowls Club!
Pop along at 6pm on a Tuesday and meet fellow beginners. You just need flat trainers. It's run by our coaches and beginners from last year so they know exactly what its like to start something new!
Pop along and see the club - meet our members and enjoy a hotdog!
We run Sunday lunches for our members throughout the year and have an engaging social programme that runs alongside the bowls.
We are in a great central location in the village with car parking and right by the Bus stop. Whats not to love!
Our players range from teenagers to our eldest member in their 90's, we have a dedicated beginners section with qualified coaching and support, our teams play in 5 leagues countywide, we run over 20 competitions and tournaments for all our players and We host County and National matches as we have a well looked after green with 6 rinks and a fabulous club house.
We play from late April to early September. And you can play any time between 10am-9pm. We have an online booking system that's easy to use. Access will provided to the club when you join.
In addition to playing in several leagues we have a number of great ways for new bowlers to gain experience including a beginners playing group, coaching, Friday night mixed triples, regular mixed friendlies, internal club competitions and Friday night club roll up nights. There really is something for everyone whether you are a beginner or an experienced bowler.
There is no dress code - the only thing we ask is that you wear shoes with flat soles. This is to protect the grass on the green (you can bowl in socks if you don't have flat soles). There is a dress code for matches and competitions which is club shirt and white or grey trousers depending on the competition.
The club organises a number of social events alongside internal bowls competitions including BBQs, Sunday Carvery, Fish and Chips supper and Talks. As a member of WBBC you get access to all the social events along with the playing options.
There are separate Male and Female changing rooms and toilets in the clubhouse. Along with a disabled toilet. There are also lockers in each changing room. When you join you might like a locker to keep your bowls and kit in. There is a small cost please ask.
There is a well stocked bar that is open to members on game days and Friday Night Club & Coaching Night. The bar is cash only. There is also a kitchen along with a function room/bar area. And terrace seating outside.
West Backwell Bowls Club has signed a new main sponsorship deal for the season with Parker's Estate Agents. The Estate Agency has its headquarters in Backwell and the deal follows a link up last summer when Parker's sponsored a Ladies Invitation Triples Event at the club. Andrew Simmonds, director at Parker's Estate Agents, said: “We are keen to support the return of community events in the village following the restrictions of the last few years during the Covid pandemic. "The West Backwell Bowls Club is a wonderful asset to the whole area and is a great place where people are able to keep fit and socialise. We are involved in helping people buy and sell homes in the area - but it is assets like the bowls club that make it a great place to live."
