Both Greens are open and available for play - enjoy

BSCGBC was established in 1896 and since then has been an element in the community life of Bournville. The club has recently move from its location on the Cadbury Recreation Ground on Linden Road overlooking the iconic factory to a new secluded location close by, just off Mary Vale Road. Here we have two crown greens ready for the start of the new season in March 2024. Whilst we have bid a sad farewell to our old much loved location (pictured left) we look forward to an exciting future in our new home.

From May to September the club has league teams playing every day of the week as well as friendly games, social events and lots of internal competitions.

The club has members holding national accreditation in coaching, refereeing and safeguarding, lots of friendly male and female team mates to help newcomers learn this fascinating game, and high standard bowling across its many teams.

Crown green bowling is an excellent way to promote physical and mental health. Experienced bowlers can join one of our 13 teams that play in 7 regional leagues. New bowlers can receive guidance from friendly players, join free coaching sessions led by nationally accredited coaches before joining, if you wish, one of our teams for new players.

Chair's Cup review, held on Sunday 9th June.

We had 9 of the 20 eligible bowlers take part in the event. The competition was held on a rather damp afternoon, but it didn't spoil the standard of the bowling or dampen the will to win. Of all of the matches on the day, the widest winning margin was 21-17 and 3 of the matches went all the way to 21-20.

After coming all of the way from the preliminary round, Paul was defeated 18-21 by Phil in the first semi-final. The other semi saw Steve beat Bryan 21-19.

Thank you to everyone who bowled and provided food. Good luck to Steve Hyland and Phil Cawood in the September final.

Our next internal event is our second handicap competition of the year, the Secretary's Shield. This will take place on Sunday 23rd June, starting at 13:00.

Please register with Paul Jones by 12:45 on the day.

This is open to the higher handicap bowlers and new members who have joined us recently, but everyone else is welcome to attend.

The format will be knockout matches played to 21, you start with your handicap on the card.

The 2 remaining pairs of bowlers will go forward to finals day on Sunday 22nd September, so before entering, please make sure that you are free on finals day.

The decision on which green to use will be made nearer the event, but remember, no prior practice is allowed on either green on the day of the competition.
