About the club
We were formed as a men only bowling club in 1968. In 2012 we changed our standing to a mixed club. This coincided with the acquisition of members from West Heath Bowling Club, which had been forced to close due to insufficient membership. The joining together took place extremely well, and we are still the same happy friendly crowd.
Our ground is situated in a nice secluded part of Northumberland Heath recreation ground off Sussex Road. Our green is tended by a fully trained green-keeper. The rest of the work is done by members. In 2015 the consortium upgraded our watering system to compensate for the drop in mains water pressure.
We always have a full fixture list for both weekend and mid-week games. Although we are essentially an outdoor club we do play a number of indoor competition matches in the winter.
