Belfairs Bowling Club

Founded 1929


Members must be in possession of an annual season ticket, available from Belfairs Bowling club contact

 Club Captain or Club Secretary for more information including ticket discount which entitles the holder to bowl free of charge on any of the Council’s greens. It must be available for inspection by the Ranger(s) at any time. Members are entitled to use the green at any time between 10.30am and close-up in the evening provided that the rink has not been booked for matches or competitions.

Each member has a disc bearing his/her name and handicap, and this is kept on a board in the clubhouse. There are club-organised roll-ups each Monday and Friday at 2.00pm, and members wishing to participate should have their discs on the table no later than 1.45pm.

All members are given a handicap on a scale of 1-12 with the strongest players at 12. These are used to select rinks for competitions and for the handicap singles championship.

The club runs competitions for many categories – singles, pairs, triples and fours, scratch and handicap.  Members are given an entry form listing the competitions which should be completed and returned to the club secretary by the end of February A nominal entry fee of 50p is charged for each competition. Southend & District and County competitions are open to members and entry details are displayed on the club notice board late in the season for the following year.

Dress on the rink is usually grey trousers, club shirt  and approved bowling shoes. White trousers are worn on occasions, also smart white shorts

Ladies may wear white skirts.

Match sheets for friendly games are displayed inviting members to submit their names for selection. When a member’s name is selected and displayed, he/she must tick their name to indicate availability otherwise that member will be substituted by another.

The teams for the County games, Group 6, Parren and Beharell Shields are picked by the selection committee without inviting names. Again, names should be ticked to indicate availability.

The Annual General Meeting of the club is held early in December when officers are selected for the forthcoming year. A list requesting nominations for each post is displayed on the notice board towards the end of the season. Nominations must be accompanied by a proposer and a seconder. The other major meeting of the club is in the spring when members renew their subscriptions and pay club competition entry free.

The Tattersal Cup is a triples competition played within the club to determine who will represent the club in a district-wide tournament.
