Birstall Bowling Club extends a very warm welcome to all - especially those that are visiting this site for the first time.

The Club and Clubhouse is now closed and we trust that everyone continues to follow the governments COVID guidance and stays healthy over the winter.


Sadly at present there will be no winter activities in the Clubhouse but we will notify if conditions change & rules allow.

We also look forward to meeting all our old friends as well as anyone that would like to call in and see what we are about and also to try this long standing game.

We have been part of the local community for 75 years now and if anyone wishes to try the game of bowls in 2021 our qualified coaches are always available. We have 3 mixed Club days per week (during the season) - Monday afternoons from 2pm and Tuesday and Friday evenings from 6pm (subject to competitive matches).

Please come and give it a go - just wear some flat shoes and we will provide the rest. Equipment and Bowls to suit you - we even have some Junior sizes which will suit small hands from 7/8 upwards. Coaching guidance provided - free of charge. 

Our Club is based in the heart of Birstall, a village in the Charnwood Area of Leicestershire and our season runs from April to September.

The club started with just two rinks on some old grass tennis courts on Park Road, moving to its current site, on the Birstall Playing fields, in May 1957. We are very proud of the standard of our green and facilities, believing it to be one of the best in the County.

Bowls is certainly a sport for all, a sport where everyone can achieve enjoyment at a level to suit yourself.  You will find a group of like-minded and friendly people at all levels of ability. Our qualified coaching team will welcome you into the Club and provide you with 4 free coaching sessions to help you develop the necessary skills and knowledge, so that you master the basics of the game.

The Club offers a range of membership options to suit all abilities and ages.

You will find Birstall Bowling Club offers a supportive and friendly environment to help you enjoy the great sport of Lawn Bowling.
