Hinckley Bowling Club
Hinckley Bowling Club was founded in 1908
Affiliated to Bowls Leicestershire and Bowls England.
The club aims to provide a platform for players to compete at club, county or international level whilst providing facilities for newcomers and bowlers of all standards to enjoy a friendly game of bowls with like-minded club members and against other local clubs.
The season runs from April to the end of September and we play inter-club friendly matches on Thursday and Saturday afternoons throughout the season, being a large enough club to put out two teams on most Saturdays. We also play in the Hinckley & District Triples League on a Monday evening and currently have four teams competing in various divisions.
Once members have paid their subscription they are entitled to use the green for practise at any time at no extra cost. Our members are a very friendly bunch and will welcome newcomers to practise (roll-up is the bowler’s term) with them and will give advice to help them with their game. The clubhouse is well appointed, and has a great social atmosphere, where members can enjoy a drink and a chat after a session on the green. Food is provided for home fixtures and for special evenings in the social programme.
During the season the bar is open most evenings and serves a wide range of drinks at club prices. In the winter months the club is open for special events but on each Friday evening we have a social gathering where friendly competitive games are played in the clubhouse and refreshments are available (See the notice board for details).
