Heaton Hall Flat Green Bowling Club
May I wish you a warm welcome to the website of Heaton Hall Bowling Club. Our club is one of 3 flat green clubs (also known as lawn bowls), in Lancashire, we were established in 1926.The greens used to be at the back of the hall over looking Manchester, one was for flat green and two others for crown green,and these were in constant use for the benefit of all.
The club moved to its new home, next to the entrance at St. Margarets and still within the park shortly following the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester where we took over the four greens and facilities built for the games.
We are a friendly mixed club of bowlers whose range of talent is matched to their experience. From the junior members to the senior members, social members to our county/ international players, we play to enjoy and make friends.
Our club has punched well above its weight in National, County and Regional competitions and currently have members in the Bowls England Team. Last year 2018, National honours came thick and fast at the Bowls England Championships at Leamington Spa.Just recently, two members represented Bowls England at the Hong Kong games gaining Gold and Bronze medals.
Many of our male members also represent Bowls Lancashire in the Middleton Cup and Alsop teams against Cumbria, Northumberland,.Durham and Yorkshire. All are keenly contested games but played in a really friendly atmosphere and celebrated with a glass or two afterwards.
Our Ladies have had great success in the Stella Logan competition over the years and are every bit as competitive as the Mens team.
We have a varied club programme throughout the season from friendly games against other clubs, ie;Harrogate BC or competition games against Bolton BC or Southport BC. Also the club has in house competitions all summer accumalating in a finals weekend in September.
This year we are hosting the National Deaf Council Championship again which is always a pleasure.
If you would like to join us or receive more information please do not hesitate to contact us,( the greens are open from the !2th April) and Wednesday afternoon is Public day where anyone can come along and have a game, we have an excellent assortment of bowls you can try.
Our members would be more than happy to give you some pointers about the game if you have never bowled before, as I have always maintained if there is a more friendly game other then bowls I have not met it.
