Welcome to the   Belper Meadows Bowls Club   website             
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.

In 2019 the Club will again be running  eleven  teams
3 Ladies, 2 Men's and 6 Mixed),
it also has a program of club competitions, social events
 and social bowling.

New members are always welcome

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 unmade 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. (you may find it helpful to delete the label on the map first, by clicking on the map)

Club News

2019 Early Season

The green is now open: all members are welcome to try it out. Despite the unkind summer of 2018, it is running very well.

All team Fixture Lists are now on this website, and there is also a Full Fixture List and a separate list of times the green is in use.

The electronic entry system for the site and pavilion is now in place. Please contact Alan Ward if you would like a key fob to be ordered. The new pavilion is now functioning fully, and has a more homely feel to it.

Team Signing-up etc

There are notices on the Club Room noticeboard for signing up for teams and to indicate to captains times you may be unavailable.
