St Wilfrids Bowling Club is open between March and September every year and is a great place to take part in Crown Green Bowling. There are a wide variety of activities and events held throughout the season which are open to experienced bowlers or beginners who would just like to have a go. There are also Family Bowling afternoons which take place during the school summer holidays and are a great opportunity for young people to come along with their families and take part. Please note all competitions and events are weather permitting.
Every Thursday afternoon, Round Robin competitions are held from 12.45 pm. These cost £2 to enter and are open to anybody. A variety of refreshments are available during the competitions. Non-members are also welcome to attend these fun afternoons.
