Dear 2020 Member,
This is a short note of thanks for re-joining Heaton Hall Bowling Club for the 2020 season. As a committee we know that this has been a difficult period for many, and it has shown even more that sports clubs like ours are needed from a physical health perspective as well as from a social side and to care for our mental health.
We realise that you joining is more of a donation this year than any other, and we really do appreciate your contribution. Having said that, the greens are open and we have been able to play since 4th July. You can book a slot anytime here: - https://www.picktime.com/heatonhallbowlingclub
Some of you will be taking part in the new Bowls Lancashire Super League hosted at our club. If you aren't playing, please also come down to support and socialise, every Saturday 10am-2pm from 1st August until 26th September.
We are also organising our club competitions which will take place most Sunday's starting 9th August. A full list will be circulated shortly, and it is anticipated that you will be able to enter by email to email@example.com as well as putting your name on the sheet at the club.
You may also have seen we are currently advertising 3 voluntary vacancies, Development Manager, Social Manager and Assistant Treasurer. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
So, thank you once again for joining the bowling club this season and we hope you and your family stay safe and well.

As Secretary of HHBC it has come to my attention that some comments made on Facebook may be deemed inappropriate. I therefore need to remind everyone that we have codes of conduct and etiquette that we must adhere to both on and off the green. My number one aim since taking on the role is to conquer any divisions in the club and return HHBC to a friendly but competitive place to bowl. I know it is not possible for everyone to see eye to eye all the time, but can I ask you all to focus that passion on to the bowling green especially as representatives of the club. Also I need to remind you all that we have a disciplinary procedure which can result in the suspension of membership at all levels so please think before you post
The club now has a new Club Secretary, Mr Mark Oliver, we welcome him to the post.
We would also like to thank Mr. Peter Yardley for all his work as Club Secretary, it's not an easy post & he has left the Club in a good place. Thank you Peter for everything!

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.
