Welcome to Ember Bowls Club

The Ember Team


The easing of lockdown restrictions enabled us to open for a full season of bowling in 2021.  Bowls is a naturally covid-safe sport being a socially-distanced, non-contact activity.  It also plays a key role in the mental and physical health of many across the country.  The positive prospect of a new season provided a great opportunity to try something new, or to pick up from where the pandemic stopped you, and we were pleased to welcome many new members to the sport of Bowls.  We are now looking forward to 2022 and would love to welcome new friends to our sport.

Or just click on our membership application form on the join us page. You can also follow us on Facebook.

Social Play
Ember Bowls Club welcomes members of all standards.  
No “playing-in” standard is required to join us, other than the ability to deliver a bowl without damaging the playing surface.
Within our programme of events you will see that we cater for a wide range of abilities.  Whilst 9 of our members have attained their county badge, we also have members who are absolute beginners.  The ability of most of our members falls somewhere between these two extremes!
To encourage beginners we hold an Introductory Course towards the end of April into the first half of May.  This consists of a “Taster” session followed by four follow-up sessions over the next two weeks.  For details of this course please see the Ember’s Introductory Course page.  New bowlers who join the Club are encouraged to continue meeting on Thursday evenings for further development
Otherwise the Club aims to provide an environment where players can improve their standards and progress through playing in matches and competitions to the highest level they can.  Who knows, you may turn out to be the next David Bryant, Tony Allcock or even Francis Drake!
