Current club members are always on the lookout for new members to join them, so if you’re unsure whether a new group is for you, don’t worry – you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. Inaugurated in 1944, West Ward Bowls Club is certainly well-established and this year members are proud to celebrate its 75th anniversary. Located just a mile west of the city centre on Fulham Road, they’re proud of their grounds too: a well-protected green containing six rinks considered to be one of the best-kept greens in the area.
The green is surrounded by spectator seating, some of which is under cover. A car park, small floral gardens and a large, well-appointed clubhouse complete with well-stocked bar completes the grounds. Bowls is played from April to September with six teams currently entered into the Peterborough league. They also run internal and external competitions and roll-ups can be arranged. But what about during the long winter months? Well, there’s plenty to keep members occupied as the nights draw in, with cribbage, bingo, pool, quiz nights, darts and dominoes all ready to amuse and challenge. West Ward Bowls Club welcomes everyone, irrespective of age, gender or ability. If you have never played lawn bowls before and don’t know what to expect, you are in for a treat because this is one sport that’s bound to have you hooked. See you on the green!
