Bowls Club

Fownhope Bowls Club regularly plays short mat bowls on Thursday and Sunday evenings between 7.30 and 9.30pm in the New Memorial Hall. The Club is actively competitive but very much also enjoys its social bowling side. The evening roll ups are a combination of the two and the Club always welcomes anyone who would like to come along and give this friendly sport a try.  

On the competitive side the Club has a team in the Herefordshire League and in addition six of our members are regularly selected to play in our two county teams in the ESMBA Inter County Championship.

The Club runs three internal competitions between January and June each year featuring singles and pairs. 

At the end of April each year Wye Leisure sponsors our very popular annual Open Fours Charity Competition when the Club plays host to 16 teams from several of the surrounding counties and Wales.  Each year the winners of the previous year choose the charity to receive the takings from the day, made up of entry fees, raffle and generous donations from those taking part. 

The sport is suitable for all ages- we have had members from the age of eleven up to the nineties. All you need is a bit of hand/eye coordination and a sense of humour when things don’t go the way you expected. Why not come along and find out whether this is your cup of tea. We will provide encouragement, training and you can use our club bowls. We will even give you the said cup of tea and biscuits in the play interval.
