Welcome to Our Bowling Club which is in the centre of the Mendip village of Winscombe near Weston Super Mare in North Somerset. We are proud to have one of the best greens in Somerset.
2021 is Our Centenary !
- 100 Years of Village Bowls.
We must thank our three founders (Messrs. Moore, Anthony and Weekes ) who in 1921 had that gem of an idea of establishing a bowling club in Winscombe. They had played on the lawn at 'Hampden' in Sidcot Lane.
The ground on Sandford Road was obtained and the club opened in May 1922.

Formally organised outdoor sports – for adults and under 18s - can also restart and will not be subject to the gatherings limits, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies.

    At Step 1 we expect affiliated clubs to be able to open and play to return- based on the ‘Rule of 6’ .
    From 12th April Step 2 is likely to allow outdoor catering on site, changing rooms to be open and the easing of travel restrictions.
