Who we are
We are a small, friendly, Crown Green Bowls Club.
The club is, itself, part of the Belper Meadows Community Sports Club, which also has Cricket, Tennis and Hockey (both Men's & Ladies) sections.
Despite being close to the centre of Belper, we are fortunate to be located in one of the most peaceful and picturesque places in the County.
New members are always welcome
There is a separate page giving details of the Club Secretary,
other Club Officials and Team Captains: Contacts Page
Where to Find us
Belper is 8 miles north of Derby on the A6.
Access to the green is off the A6, close to the traffic lights at the junction with the A517 (to Ashbourne), at 'The Triangle'. Travelling north on the A6, take the left turn immediately before the traffic lights, then turn immediately left down the side of Christ Church, following the road alongside Belper Town FC to the Belper Meadows Sports Club (the Bowls Club is to the right, behind the pavilion and adjacent to the tennis courts).
The map/ satellite image below shows the location of the bowling green.
The map is searchable- you can zoom in or out (mouse-wheel or +/- buttons), or move the centre of the map by dragging it.
We are grateful to Terry Fletcher for the many photos he has taken over recent seasons. View them (and many others) in the Photo Gallery; there are photos from competitions, league matches and general bowling.
2024 Green Opening
The green is closed until spring 2024. Terry hopes that it will be possible to open the green for the new season on Good Friday, 29th March, but it will depend on the weather in March. Let's hope for dry, mild run-up to the Easter weekend.
Pre-Season Social Evening
The pre-season social evening will take place Thursday 14th March, (6.45 for 7.00). There will be a fish and chip supper, quizzes and the usual raffle (for which donations would be gratfully received). Please order food through Sandra Hannah (details are on Janet's circulated letter).
2024 League Fixtures
Fixtures will be confirmed after each league has held its Fixtures Meeting to iron out problems. Links to them will then be available using the 'Fixtures' tab at the top of the page. It is hoped to receive them all by mid March
Warm Space Social Time
Following the success of the summer social bowling and lunch on Fridays, the Club is once again , over the closed season, offering an opportunity for social time from 11.30 to 3.00pm Fridays, including games, drinks etc. Last year it was combined with the Warm Spaces inititive, and not therefore confined to club members and we intend that to continue- if you know of anyone who might benefit bring them along for a bit of social time.
Open Doubles Competition
This will be held on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27th.
There is an Entry Form, which gives more details (and a link to download it)
