Normal winter arrangements are in operation. Ther is bingo every Wednesday afternoon at 2.00pm, all welcome. Tea/coffee and biscuits at half time.
Tuesday evening the club is open from 7.00pm for social evenings. There is cards and darts and the bar is open. Or just drop in to socialise.
Tuesday morning is maintenance time for the green and premises. A good time to drop off any paperwork or just pop in for a visit.
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.
The club is not open all day every day but during the season there are regular events when it will be open. On Monday and Saturday afternoons it is open from about 1.30pm till about 4.00. On Wednesday and Friday mornings it is open for Triples and Aussie Pairs from about 9.45 and other times when there is a match on. These can be found on your fixture lists. During the season the green maintenance team is there on Tuesday Mornings. Off season there is the Wednesday afternoon bingo club and social evenings when there is sufficient support. Rinks can be booked for competitions etc by putting a note in the diary but please take note of the time slots on the notice board.
As things stand we should be able to return to a completely unrestricted season, although things are still liable to change at any time. At this time infection rates are low but should this change the Club will act to comply with any government guidence.

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.
