Taster Sessions

Why not come along to one of our taster sessions on Friday 17 May from 5pm.
After that you may come any time, although Friday evenings is a good time when we reserve space on the green
for prospective new members, you can then join in with other club members for more practice.
Initially all you need to bring with you is a pair of flat shoes/trainers, the club will provide the bowls and all other equipment
to enjoy the game of bowls. Helpers will be on hand to give you some guidance.
There is no charge, all we ask is you come along try the game and enjoy playing at whatever level you wish to achieve
and join in the friendship that the club provides.

Abingdon Bowling Club can be regarded as one of the premier bowling clubs in the area. We pride ourselves in being a club for all and complete beginners are welcomed to take up our sport and participate in the numerous events at the club.
Club members may take part in numerous friendly games and competitions, from internal games to county leagues. There are separate Ladiesí, Menís, Senior Menís (age 55+) league matches, mixed matches and Club Days, roll up session for the ladies on a Monday afternoon and for the men on a Tuesday afternoon during the playing season.
The Men take part in all of the Berkshire leagues and competitions, and the Ladies in the Ridgeway League and Berkshire competitions. Many of the members have reached the County finals and gone on to compete at the national finals.
There are teams of volunteer members, who maintain the green and do general maintenance around the clubhouse and surrounds. The club green is of a standard where it is classified for County competition status. The surrounding grass, and flowerbeds are also maintained by club members.
