MERTON BOWLING CLUB

Your Local Bowling Club

We are a mixed lawn bowls club and invite men and lady players of all abilities, including beginners, to come and join our friendly club. Bowls in Merton is well established and Merton Bowling Club is the oldest club, founded in 1909.  Our season runs from the end of April until the beginning of October. Merton Bowling Club also has an active link with Joseph Hood Primary School to provide coaching and support for the annual primary schools' championship.  This provides young students with an insight into a sport where age has no limitation and helps promote cross-generation contact.

INTERNAL COMPETITONS

We also run a number of internal club championship competitions for players of all abilities which culminate in a finals day in September and a trophy presentation event after the annual Captain’s versus President’s match.

WEEKLY INTERNAL LEAGUE

We can provide new and seasoned bowlers with coaching and on each Tuesday we run an internal mixed ballot league.  This gives everyone the opportunity, in a friendly, fun environment, to try out all the positions within a team.
