Sutton Bowling Club

INDOOR & OUTDOOR

The outdoor club is very active, participating in National and County competitions together with inter club competitions organised by London and Southern Counties Bowling Association and Sutton and District Bowling Association. It also participates in the East Surrey and New Surrey Bowls Leagues.

The club offers coaching for newer bowlers and provides a friendly environment to enjoy your bowls at any level.

Friendly matches are played many of which are mixed matches. Internally there are ballots which are played on a turn up and play basis and again some of these are mixed. There is a strong programme of internal competitions in the various formats for bowls.

There are Men’s ballots on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday evenings with mixed ballots on Monday and Friday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.

There are men’s versus ladies matches on Presidents and Captain’s days and we also run competitions at the club which are open to other clubs.

COACHING

We provide coaching for all new bowlers free of charge. This includes not just the mechanics of bowling but also how the game is played,

etiquette etc. In addition we also provide, on request, 'remedial' coaching for more experienced bowlers.

On completion of coaching we provide an on-going mentoring service to help new bowlers understand how the club operates, (e.g. joining /

playing for the club etc.). For the men this is done by Dennis Sheppard and for the ladies Dot Power.

The organiser of coaching is Mike Coombs.
