PAGE PARK

BOWLS CLUB

Welcome to our club

 

Page Park BC is a large mixed bowling club in the North-east Bristol suburb of Staple Hill.  The green and clubhouse is located in Page Park, a superb Victorian park centrally positioned in Staple Hill.  A pleasant and well-used social facility, valued by the whole community, and which quite recently obtained major grant funding for renovation and also the provision of a new cafe built adjacent to our club. *

Coaching is provided for anyone thinking of trying out the sport of bowls, with later opportunities for joining our club if so desired.   For established bowlers of both genders, we run no less than six league teams (four men’s and two ladies’), competing weekly in various Bristol area leagues, plus organising a plethora of inter-club friendly games against other clubs from all over Bristol and South Gloucestershire.    


There is absolutely no shortage of chances to play regular bowls -  men’s friendlies on Wednesdays and Saturdays, women’s on Tuesdays and Thursdays and mixed games on Sundays particularly feature.  Plus many club competitions too, throughout the season, which runs from mid-April to late-September.

PAGE PARK BC BOWLS COACHING COURSE – MAY/JUNE 2017


The course of 6 weeks tuition by experienced bowlers is under the direction of coaches trained by Bowls England, and seeks to enable anyone to develop so that they are able to take part in a bowls match. It does, of course, depend upon the commitment and ability to learn of the individual student. Last year we trained some 36 persons many of whom decided to take up the sport and join a club.


This is a course for persons of any age (over 12 years).  The course begins on Saturday 6th May and continues for the following 6 weeks, with an additional seventh week should the students request this to help with a specific aspect. It runs for 2 hours from 10.00 am to 12 noon.  Should there be the demand, we are willing to also do a course on Friday evenings from 6.00pm to 8.0 pm, which would begin on 5th May.


 Page Park Bowls Club will provide all the items of equipment required, but students should bring their own footware, which MUST  BE  FLAT SOLED - NO HEELS OR RIBBED SOLES.


There is a registration fee of £5.00 and each session a charge of £2.50 is made.  Written material about the rules and the etiquette of playing bowls will be provided.


 Further information available from the coaches, Bob Wood - 0117 956 7921, Paul Roach - 0117 956 6881, Ken Ireland - 0117 956 3891.  An application form will be sent to interested persons which should be returned to Bob Wood, 3 Oakdale Walk, Downend, Bristol, BS16 6DY.
