N,C.B,A are holding their competition semi finals on Sunday the 10th July and finals on Sunday 17th July at King’s Lyhh Bowls Club. If you are interested in bowling or would just like a days entertainment free of charge why not come along and enjoy a day of quality bowling. The bar will be open and food will be available, look forward to seeing on the day.

Roll Ups

Opening day went very well, we even had some hardy souls taking to the green.
Roll ups will start on Tuesday 5th April (14.oo hrs) and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of the season.
Do not forget coaching sessions for beginners Wednesday mornings 10.30am.

Opening of the Green

Winter has almost gone Spring has sprung!!The opening of the green is on Saturday 2nd of April, the clubhouse will be open from 12.00hrs when the bar is open (not forgetting your free glass of wine) and hot dogs and burgers will be available for those who require nourishment.
For those wishing to bowl,weather permitting,will mean you are on the green approx 14.00hrs. We look forward to seeing all our members from last year and especially new members. King’s Lynn can meet the needs of all standards of bowlers, whether you are a complete novice or very experienced.
We run coaching courses for complete novices/beginners, social bowling for bowlers who do not want the competitive edge and league bowling for the more competitive.

New Years Eve

The club will be open to all members (Boris permitting) on New Years Eve.If you fancy a social evening enjoying a quiet drink and a chat (food is available) come along. Much more enjoyable than watching the same old New Years rubbish on the television.

Closing of the green

Our closing of the green was on Saturday 2nd October, unfortunately the weather did not allow any bowling. However I am sure everyone who was there thoroughly enjoyed Jane and Pat’s  cream teas.

So that is it for 2021, a pretty successful year all things considered. We now look to 2022, opening of the green will be Saturday 2nd of April 12.00hrs. Looklng forward to seeing existing and new members, coaching for beginners is every Wednesday 10.30 am starting on Wednesday 13th April. Stay Safe and see you all next year.

The final for the Downham Triples League was held at Downham Conservatives BC on Sunday 5th September. Unfortunately we came second to a very strong Downham BC “A”, that did not stop us from enjoying the afternoon, great hospitality, lovely weather and quality bowling. Roll on next years bowling.

Hansells Cup

Last Saturday morning we played Dickleburgh Bowls Club in the semi final of the Hansells Cup, a close game with us just running out winners. In the afternoon we played County Arts in the final, County Arts getting the better of us, congratulations to County Arts. We had a brilliant days bowling and thoroughly enjoyed the company of both clubs. A big thank you to Wymondham Dell for their excellent hospitality.

Now on to our Fourth semi final of the season, against Downham Market ‘B’ in the Downham Triples League.


Congratulations to John Abbott and his squad, who last week clinched the winning of the     West 2 division in the Norfolk EBA League by a comfortable margin of 11.5 points. The team now meet Dickleburgh BC in the semi final of the Hansells Cup, to be held at            Wymondham Dell BC on the 28th August. Good luck on the day to John and his squad.


Unfortunately both teams lost in their semi finals on Sunday. However both teams thoroughly enjoyed the days bowling and would like to thank both R G Carter and Holt Bowling Clubs for their hospitality. And just to say WE WILL BE BACK!!
