Welcome to the Bishop Duppas Website.
Its to cold for bowls at the moment, especially outdoors...brrrrrr!!
We are a friendly, enthusiastic and totally inclusive lawn bowls club with a good mix of lads and lasses from all walks of life that want to enjoy the fine game of bowls. Some of us just like to play friendly matches with local clubs while others are very competitive, competing from County to National level. If you are "new" to bowls then don't worry, we have coaches that will help you learn for free.... when you feel confident you can join in with our practice sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
"We welcome applications from beginners and experienced bowlers looking for a change in sport or location."
We provide each beginner with equipment, free membership and coaching for 4 weeks. If you enjoy the experience and want to continue with the game, you can apply to become full members paying pro rata subscription for the remainder of the season which includes associate membership for the non-playing partners of full members.
Our season runs from April to September, like all outdoor lawn bowls clubs in the UK. In addition to playing bowls, members are welcome to join us at our sociable club nights. These are held every Tuesday evening when good use is made of our clubhouse and bar which form the back-drop to a programme of entertainments. Also, many members and their partners join our annual tour to another part of the country/world, we all travel by coach/plane/motorbike/cycle/tram/car and usually stay at the same pre-booked hotel. Most days are booked up to play against a nearby club and activities can be arranged for those not playing on the day.
If you have read all the above......THANK YOU!!!
