Welcome to The Official Spital Bowls
& Tennis Club Website

The Spital Bowling and Tennis Club, founded in 1920 and situated on the North East side of Tamworth, Staffordshire, still continues to play on the original site.  There have been a few changes throughout the years, with modern facilities and updates having taken place as recently as the last couple of years.

The Club is open to all genders and all ages wishing to partake of the wonderful facilities the Club has to offer.

As you can see from the Club title there are two main sections to the club and you can join either or both of the Bowling and Tennis sections, or just the Social Section and attend the social activities including Table Tennis.

In addition to the Bowling and Tennis there is a Table Tennis group and they currently meet on a Wednesday morning at around 10:30am. There is also a table tennis team playing in a local league.

During the Bowling closed season we have a Social section where we meet on Thursday afternoons from 2pm - 4pm or so, and play various games and generally have a social gathering where we can all keep in touch with "what's going on".  There are also additional afternoons of table tennis, Tuesdays and Fridays, during the closed Bowling season.
We have decided to extend these activities on days when it's impossible to play Bowls due to the English weather! The general advice is to turn up as there will be something taking place, which will be table tennis daily with the exception of Thursdays when it will be a general social afternoon with cards, dominoes and various other games!

Prospective members are welcome at the club - just introduce yourselves to any adult member who will then attempt to guide you to the relevant person to help you achieve your goal of membership or maybe coming initially as a guest to see "if it's for you" or not. We have a Privacy Policy which can be viewed here. Spital Bowling and Tennis Club Limited PRIVACY NOTICE.pdf

Bowling starts at 2:30pm every day of the season, starting in April and running through to October, date TBA, when it closes until the following season.  We like people to be there at 2:15pm so that the names can be drawn for the teams to start at 2:30pm.  The afternoon session usually terminates around 4:45pm with a 15min tea break around 3:30pms.

We play on a daily basis amongst ourselves, drawing names out of a bag so to speak on the day and compete internally amongst ourselves for various cups as detailed on the Fixtures List. We also play a number of other clubs in the area on a friendly, non-league basis.

We don't however play in any bowling leagues, so if you're looking for that type of club then we aren't for you, so you might like to visit the Staffordshire County Bowling Association Site for a list of other clubs that might be more suitable for your requirements.
Having said that, we have a team in the Baddesley evening league - see the Bowling section for further details.

Table Tennis League Players: See the Bowling section, Bowls Membership Form, for details of fees.

Tennis tends to start around 6pm on weekdays and approx 2:30pm in the afternoons at weekends - see for more details.

The tennis teams play in various leagues and you can obtain further details from the tennis Secretary.

There is a Visitor's fee of £3 per attendance and a limited number of times you can attend as a guest before being expected to join.

If you can't make it in person and would like more information, click on the 'List of Contacts' and then you can phone or write accordingly.  To experience the "atmosphere of the club" try turning up on the day!  We don't bite!

Our fees, which can be found on the application form, are very reasonable as I'm sure you'll see for yourselves.  Click on the Application form to open in your pdf viewer and then print it out, or right click and save it to your computer, fill it in and send it to the relevant Membership Secretary along with your subscription.

We are a great bunch of people and offer a warm welcome to all visitors, be they novices or experienced players!

If you like club or interclub competitions/friendlies, then we also have a number of these running, and details can be found by looking at the various sections.
