Guildford Community Lottery! 

8 January

Another £25 win from the lottery for one of our members this evening. That makes 8 cash prize winners this year and the second time for this particular individual. To date the club has earned just short of £3,000 from the lottery which is very helpful in these difficult times. 

But our supporter numbers have slipped from a peak of  41 to 32 now. Our weekly ticket tally has slipped from its high of 79 to 66 currently.  We do have regular cash prize winners, our latest supporter to win cash was as recently as October. 

So thanks and well done but we need to be careful not to stop the rot.  If your payment or direct debit has expired you can renew it online or on 01483 33885

You have to be in it to win it so let's try to get our ticket count back up.  If you haven't signed up yet what are you waiting for??

Background

Sir Francis Drake famously prepared to defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588 by having a game of bowls at his local Plymouth Hoe club.   Burpham Bowling Club was established in 1990.  It is a mixed club, one of the largest the Guildford area.  New members from beginner to experienced are always welcome.  

 

We have our own clubhouse, with licensed bar, plus access to the amenities pavilion of Sutherland Memorial Park and free parking at weekends (up to 5 hours weekdays).  Our green is looked after by Guildford Borough Council and is one of the best maintained in the area.  Our clubhouse is undergoing a major refurbishment ready for the 2021 season.

 

Our season runs from April to September.  We take part in a variety of competitions at regional, county and national levels.  We also have an extensive programme of mixed league and friendly matches against other clubs in the area.  And there are programmes of men's and ladies' matches.  

We also have a programme of internal club competitions every year, and casual club matches (i.e. roll-ups) when members can simply turn up for a friendly game of bowls in the company of other club members.  

Membership is available to playing and non-playing members and we have a very active social programme in the clubhouse throughout the winter months.  We have good links with the local community - for more information see the About Us section.

 

If you'd like to try bowls we can help you to get started and quickly enjoy bowling at Burpham Bowling Club.  Free tuition is available to new bowlers from our in-house qualified coaches.  You can also join as a non-playing member and enjoy our club's social side.

 

You are very welcome to browse the website and visit the club.  If bowls was a good enough game for Sir Francis Drake.....???
