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),
and
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 Season

It is hoped that we shall be able to open the green at midday on Saturday 30th March, subject to weather conditions allowing the necessary work to be done on it.

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.

Pre-Season Pie & Peas Social Evening

This will take place on  Friday 22nd March  in the Nailers Lounge at the Belper Town Football Club. Please order your food via Graham.

2018 Presentation Evening & Dinner

The club Dinner & Presentation Evening took place on Saturday 17th November, at the Lion Inn, Belper. Trophies and Cups were presented by Christine Nelson, with Club Secretary, Graham Sheldon, as MC.

Bonfire & Fireworks 2018

Thanks to all members who helped to ensure that our annual bonfire and fireworks evening on 3rd November ran so smoothly.

It is always good to see members of the various Sections of the Sports Club working successfully together,

Bowling during the winter

The bowling green was closed after the final home match of the season on 19th September, to allow for essential maintenance- summer 2018 was not kind to it as we know.

For those interested, the club has rinks booked at the Alfreton Indoor Bowls Centre on Monday & Thursday mornings, and also has teams taking part in leagues there. Details are on the club notice board, or contact Lynne Marples for further details.

Photo Gallery

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.
