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 2020 the Club will be running  twelve  teams
3 Ladies, 2 Men's and 7 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

November 2019 Flooding

The flood water was over 5 feet deep across our site and about 18 inches deep in the pavilion.
Tremendous effort from members has enabled the pavilion to be brought back into use, although it will take time to dry out thoroughly.
Unfortunately outside it is a different matter. All our equipment has been badly affected, and it may yet be some time before the full picture is known.
One very obvious need is to replace the cushions ruined by the flood. Any cushions will be gratefully received, as will things which can be converted into cushions, such as old duvets and quilts.
In order to record the flood, an album has been set up and members are invited to add their own photos to it, particularly those showing the clean-up operation.
A link to this, and to Terry's photos, and also to drone footage, togther with other photos,can be found at: 2019 Floods
