Come Join Us

A friendly and thriving crown green bowling club based in Dorridge.  

Welcoming bowlers of all abilities, we enter teams in several bowling leagues around the West Midlands and also organise internal club competitions and social bowling for our members. 

We also have a highly active calendar of social events. Please see the Events page for more details.

If you are interested in becoming a member or finding out more about the club and crown green bowls, please come and visit us or make contact with our Membership Secretary.

To get to know the sport a bit better, we have answered some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below:

What equipment do I need?

You need a pair of bowls. If you are new to bowling you can use the club's bowls until you are ready to buy your own.

New bowls will usually cost from £60 upwards.

Other equipment you will need include a mat, jack and set of measures, these are all available from the club.

What footwear do I need?

Whilst on the green you must wear flat soles - for example trainers or pumps, this is to prevent damage to the green.

Do I need special clothing?

No, casual clothing is fine. In Crown Green bowling it is not customary for players to wear white outfits.

The Club has its own branded sportwear which is often worn by teams competing in league competitions, but this is entirely optional. 

Does the club provide tuition?

Yes, the Club can arrange coaching on a one to one or group basis for new and less experienced bowlers.

What are the match fees?

To play in any league match, a fee of £2 is payable for each match. There is no charge for playing in any club competition.

How much does it cost to join?

If you would like to play bowls, the annual membership fee is £75, for those under 21 the annual membership is FREE. There is also a one off joining fee of £15 - this covers the cost of a lifetime registration with the British Crown Green Bowling Association.

If you would like a social membership but do not wish to play bowls the annual fee is £15. This entitles you to use the clubhouse facilities and reduced ticket prices for social events and activities.

We look forward to welcoming you to the club
