As of 17th May the club is running bowling almost as normal with the only main differences being the use of the Pavilion. Social distancing is to be practiced within the building and as far as is practical outside on and around the green. Equipment may be used with care, where possible only handled by one bowler. Avoid touching bowls that are not your own. Use only spray chalk (available for sale in the pavilion) and no shaking hands. Hand sanitizer is provided in wall fixtures under the veranda and in pump bottles within the pavilion. Refreshments are usually available but by table service only at present.
Although we are in a low Covid area it is important not to become complacent as the newer more prevalent Indian variant is believed to be more infectious.
Please check in for test and trace purposes either in the book or by NHS app.

To make more use of the clubhouse out of season a social club is being formed. Various activities are being planned including darts, quiz nights, card evenings and more. Watch the new social club page on this website for more info as the season draws to a close.
The club is located in the corner of the playing field on Green Lane. It has a full EBA qualifying green and a pavilion which includes a kitchen area and a drinks licence. A recent addition is the annex which provides a visitors changing room, a store room and a toilet with facilities for the disabled. Membership varies between 90 and 100 full members and the club has teams in six local leagues. There are two open tournaments each year with the first on the Sunday of the club's charity weekend. Several friendly matches take place each year against touring sides visiting the area. Members can enter club competitions in various singles, pairs and triples formats.
New members are welcome, just contact any committee member for details.
OBJECTIVES OF THE CLUB
The object of the club is to provide facilities to foster and promote the sport of flat green bowls at all levels, providing opportunities for recreation competition and participation. The club is a non profit making organisation with any surplus income reinvested in the club.
A SHORT HISTORY
The club reformed in 1983 at the instigation of Bradwell Parish Council having been dormant since 1959. Annual subscription was £4.00 and rink fee 20p. The first building was an ex holiday camp wooden chalet in 1986. In 1997 the famous sloping green was dug up and with funds from the Parish Council, a lottery grant and the club a new green was laid to EBA standard. The wooden buildings were replaced in 2002 with the present Golden Jubilee Pavilion.
A more complete history is being written up and will be found on a later page when available.
