Our club opened its gates in 1985 and is set in a beautiful, peaceful area, with the backdrop of the local church (St Michael’s) in the old village of Kingsteignton. We pride ourselves on being a friendly club, happy to welcome all new members of any age and ability. Wheelchair access is also available and wheelchair users are more than welcome.
We have an excellent outdoor synthetic surface, consisting of four rinks, allowing bowls to be played all year round. Beginners are welcome to come and have a go, using equipment provided by the club before having to buy bowls and shoes for themselves. For use on the bowls green, smooth soled shoes with no heel are required. One of our members is a qualified coach and any tuition given is free of charge to new members.
There is a thriving programme of bowling to suit all abilities. Informal ‘roll-ups’ (practice) take place most afternoons throughout the year and there are monthly social evenings in the Winter months. The club runs a team in the Mid Devon League (MDL) and is currently in the 1st division. It also has 2 teams in the South Devon Over 55s League and a Ladies team in the SDLL. In addition there are mixed Friendly matches and internal competitions, which always prove to be great competitive fun!
The club house is equipped with a kitchen and a social area which hosts the regular fun packed social evenings. The changing rooms have lockers to store bowlers’ equipment and the toilet facilities include a separate disabled toilet.
To conclude our club offers a very attractive package for all. Why not come along and give bowls a try?
Presently, of course, many sports clubs (just to name one outlet) have taken a massive hit, due to Covid-19. Our club is open for restricted bowling but only for friendly practise (roll ups). For members and visitors alike rinks must be booked through the club secretary, Bill Beech, mobile: 07557-094825. Certain safety guide lines will be explained to first time visitors plus various notices & instructions at the club, which must be strictly adhered to.
Enjoy your bowling!
