The bowls section has its own pavilion separate from the main clubhouse. There are changing rooms and toilets, individual equipment lockers, a kitchen, where teas are prepared, and bar facilities. There is adjacent parking in the club grounds. The six rink green is well maintained and has an automatic watering system to ensure a full season's use from late April to the end of September.
There are numerous internal club competitions and various drives (club afternoons) scheduled through the season. There is a full programme of men's, ladies' and mixed friendly matches against other clubs in which players of all abilities are encouraged to participate. Individual members also enter outside competitions and the club enters Surrey County and North West Surrey competitions.
A number of members are qualified coaches and initial tuition is provided free of charge.
Club bowls are available for new members for their initial tuition and until they purchase their own set. Bowls come in different sizes and weights. Do consult our qualified coaches as to what is best for you. A new set of bowls can cost from around £100 upwards, although second hand bowls are sometimes available at much lower prices. Various small items are needed to carry your bowls and for measuring.
For practising and informal roll-ups smart casual wear can be worn, which is interpreted as clothes in plain colours. T-shirts, jeans or shorts may not be worn. For most internal competitions, grey skirts or trousers for ladies and grey trousers for men are worn with white tops. For matches against other clubs, the ladies wear white skirts and the men white trousers.
Flat-soled bowling shoes are essential and cost around £30 - £40. We have a selection of shoes available for new members to borrow for their initial tuition.
Members can play from 11.30 am until dusk every day except Wednesday, when the starting time is 1.30 pm. Every afternoon at 2.30 pm (Sundays 2.45 pm) there is a “Roll-up” when any member who wants a friendly game can turn up and play. At 2.45pm each Friday from mid-May there is an internal friendly competition where teams will be drawn from those who roll up. There is a Club Evening every Monday (except Bank Holidays) at 6.15pm, commencing mid-May for 1 - 2 hours of friendly, social bowls.
There are various knock-out competitions which run through the summer. There is one specifically for players who have recently taken up the game. There are also handicap competitions.
In addition there are various dates in the fixture list when we have club afternoons (called drives), which involves light-hearted competition between teams drawn at random.
We have a pre-season Social supper, a dinner with prize-giving and a Christmas Social supper, all in the main clubhouse. We have a Drive and BBQ in June and Finals Day with supper early in September; both of these are at the bowls pavilion.
