Flat Green Bowls

Our Flat Green Bowling Club

The Worksop Cricket and Sports Club Flat Green Bowling Section were founded in 1988 and playing by 1991.  The club’s ethos is to welcome all new players, support existing players and help make the game of flat green bowling a great social game to play and enjoy whatever your age.

The cost of membership to the section is £35 (reviewed annually).

The section has a beautifully maintained standard-sized flat green of 160sq yards, providing 6 rinks in 2 directions. It is surrounded by seating on 2 sides, hedged and fenced with safety-netted boundaries and is attended to by experienced green keepers. The is a lovely Pavilion with a club room, conservatory, kitchen and toilets. Refreshments are served for afternoon club sessions and community club leagues on Saturday, Wednesday and Friday. The bowling season extends in daylight hours, between Spring and late Summer. The flat green offers an open booking system for members (Mon-Sat 12 noon to dusk, Sun 10am to dusk) except when matches are being played.
