OPENING DAY

Winter has all but gone, Spring is nearly here and outdoor bowling is almost upon us, thank goodness.

King’s Lynn Bowls Club opens for the 2024 bowls season on Saturday the 6th April.                        The clubhouse and bar will be open from 12.00 hrs, hot dogs and burgers will be available and do not forget your free glass of wine!! For those hardy (slightly mad) bowlers among you a roll up will commence around 14.00 hrs. If you have never bowled before and fancy a go come along we have a county coach who will guide you through the preliminary stages.

We look forward to seeing all our existing members and especially any new prospective members. Whatever your ability is we can cater for everybody. If you are a complete novice we hold coaching sessions every week throughout the season, if you are not competitive and just fancy fun bowling we have social bowling every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon however for those more experienced who want league bowling we have league bowling 6 nights a week.

As well as bowling we have a very extensive social calendar, bingo, quiz nights coach trips to shows (this year Thursford) why don’t you come along and give it try bowls is a perfect sport for everybody especially couples.

End of Season Dinner

On the 22nd of October we held our end of season dinner at Knights Hill, our special guest was Michelle Padwick, a representative of the Presidents chosen charity the ‘BIG C’.                                After an excellent meal the President, Tony Pinder, presented Michelle with cheque for £1150.00 the amount raised by the members throughout the bowling season.

Don’t forget the opening of the green in 2024 (our golden anniversary year) is Saturday the 6th April, watch this space for further information.

Presidents Day

Sunday the 30th July was our Presidents Day, the whole day is devoted to raising money for the Presidents chosen charity for this year, The Big “C”. The day was very well attended and fortunately the weather was kind to us. On the day, with other monies still to come in, a fantastic amount of £870 was raised, well done and a huge thank you to all who contributed.

Clubhouse/Bar

Information for those members who frequent the bar or those who would just like to pop in for a drink and a chat.

The Clubhouse/Bar is now closed for the Christmas and New Year period and will re open Friday 6th January 2023. Have a great Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
