We must thank our three founders (Messrs. Moore, Anthony and Weekes ) who were privileged to play on the lawn of Hampden in Sidcot Lane (the home of Mr Moore).
In 1921 they had that gem of an idea of establishing a bowling club in Winscombe. The ground on Sandford Road was obtained and the club opened on the 24th May 1922.
The rest as they say 'is history'!
2022 is our 101st Year! It is also 100 years since the green was officially opened.
On 24th May 2022 we played our first opponents - 'The Victoria BC Weston super Mare'!
Unlike 1922 our Ladies played in the morning and after a Fish and Chip Lunch the Men in the afternoon.
Unfortunately again,unlike 1922, both matches resulted in defeat for Winscombe - but it was a lovely day with our friends from 'The Vic'!
Why not Come and Join Us!
We are a very friendly Club with opportunities to play in Competive Leagues or just enjoy a social game with your friends and a drink afterwards in our well stocked bar.
