Scarning Bowls Club

Did you know, bowls is not only a great sport for all ages but you can have the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. We usually play from April to September so you don’t have to play through the miserable months!

Not only does bowls get you active and meeting new people, it has been medically proven that bowls improves your general health and helps to strengthen your immune system. Did you know that during an average game you will: bend more than 90 times, walk nearly 500 metres and swing your arm more than 40 times to deliver a bowl weighing over 3 pounds!?

We have a great community spirit here, so whether you’re looking to try a new sport, meet new people, get out and about or just have some fun and rekindle some old skills –  Scarning is the club for you! If you’re looking to play competitively we also offer opportunities for this too. All Bowls Club fixtures are included on the Village Events page, so please come along to a match and say hello.

Wednesday afternoon “roll ups” – If you want to give bowls a go, young or old, whether as a beginner or someone who has played previously, then we’d love to see you. Go on, give it a go – you know it makes sense!!

We normally start around 2:00pm and it usually lasts for a couple of hours, max, but very much weather dependant. No kit required, only yourselves, and a pair of flat shoes (ideally) if you have them.

Our club is on the playing field behind the Tennis Courts on Shipdham Lane, so please do get in touch.
