In 1982 the Parish Council took the momentous decision to create a bowling green at the heart of our village and since opening in 1984 Wingerworth Bowling Club has been part of the social and sporting fabric of our Community. The club has faced challenges during it's history, not least the incredibly difficulties we all shared in 2020. As the vaccination programme brings hope of some return to normality and reduced risk for the more vulnerable in society, our members are looking forward to getting back on the green this Spring.

During 2020 bowling was allowed under strictly controlled conditions based on the guidance of the Government and the British Crown Green Bowling Association. We intend to do the same in 2021, opening the green on 29th March, initially for pre-booked use by our members. Since 2020, with grant monies secured for 'Sports England' and support from the Parish Council, we have invested in our clubhouse to create a safer Covid environment.
As restrictions ease, we plan to increase activity at the club, open-up the green for greater use and hold open days for the local community, friends and families.
The club currently has around 70 members. We are friendly and inclusive, welcoming anyone who wants to try the sport. Once allowed, we will hold taster sessions from 10.00 through to 12.00 on each Sunday morning during the season. Until that becomes possible sessions can be arranged through our Membership Secretary. We welcome all abilities, those who have never played through to those who have many years' experience. We have a growing female membership and members aged ten to ninety.
You don't need any equipment to have a go – everything can be borrowed from the club. We now have sets of woods especially for juniors and others with small hands. Members are happy to help novices learn the game and our qualified coach holds sessions during the season.
We all know how stressful it has been to be locked in our houses for so long, but we have also learnt the value of getting out in the fresh air and taking exercise. Bowling provides a great opportunity to meet others, get some low impact exercise and enjoy friendly competition.
If interested in booking a taster session or you would like to know more about membership, please contact our Membership Secretary on 07941 367 691.
