Pershore Bowls Testing Centre

Thank you to the three Gentlemen that gave us a warm welcome on our arrival to have four sets of Bowls tested, it was a hour or so of good humour coupled with a touch of mickey taking.  they kindly explained the process and we watched with interest as they tested the bowls and made the necessary adjustments.

Thank you Pershore Bowls Testing Centre

Our new web site

Welcome to the new web site for Chippenham Park Bowls Club, we hope you will like our ‘new look’.

Please remember, if anyone needs information about our Club – for our location, directions, or for prospective new members – please point them to www.chippenhamparkbowlsclub.org

The site has been produced by Ian Thomas (of Highworth Bowls Club), and has been designed to be  ‘responsive’ – meaning that it works well on large PC displays, but it also remains readable on the tablets and mobile phones that many people now use to access the internet.

Monday Afternoon Social Bowls

Bowling on Monday afternoons – weather permitting.

Frank Swan has organised a Monday afternoon roll up for members wishing to pop along for social bowling, Frank has organised this for many a year but has decided to retire as the organiser, but to carry on as a player.

Ros Humphries will take over as organiser and we are confident Ros will do a grand job, Frank many thanks for all your work in the past.

Tea and Biscuit League

The Tea and Biscuit League has been well managed by our member Brian Duffield who is well supported by the members who enjoy a competitive game on a Friday afternoon, thanks Brian.

My thanks to all those regular members who participated over the season and also to those who stood in when short of players. Overall T&B raised £171 for club funds over the season.

The T&B League is open to all club members wishing to enjoy bowls in a very friendly match environment and welcomes players of all levels, some learning and others giving practical advice where needed. As most members know who regularly play in T&B, whilst it is good to be competitive, unlike the more serious leagues, we play for the pleasure and company this league provides.

Come and try bowling – free coaching available!

The Bowls season has started at the club, and a warm welcome awaits those who would like to try or play flat green bowls at CPBC.

If you would like to come along and try flat green bowls, then why not pop along on a Friday evening, when our club coaches Adrian and Paul will be pleased to make you welcome and give you a ‘taster’ session.

Coaching will be available on Friday evenings at 6.15pm from May onwards – weather permitting – just turn up, or call in at the club for more details. All you need is a pair of flat soled shoes, we will supply the rest to get you started.

Lawn bowls is a game for all – young, old, male or female.

Go on .. give it a try!
