13th April: After a brief ‘spring’ meeting Club President Gordon Pearce officially opened the green by delivering the first bowl. Conditions were cool and drizzly – but a few members took the opportunity to have their first roll-up of the year.
Highworth Bowls Club invites visitors to its Open Day on Saturday 4th May, from around 11:00am to 3:00pm.
The Club’s coaches will be on hand to give visitors a ‘taster’ bowling session, so if you’ve ever thought about trying your hand at bowling, here’s your chance..
You’ll find that bowls is a sociable game that can be enjoyed at almost any age, and one in which partners can play at the same time, on an equal basis.
If you haven’t visited the Club before, or if it’s been a while since you last visited, please come along and see us – Club members will be pleased to meet you and show you around. Of course, you don’t have to bowl to be a member of Highworth Bowls Club. Our clubhouse and bar is open throughout the year for our social and bowling members – new members are welcome.
To our own members: please have a think about any friends, relatives or neighbours that might like to join the club – either as social members, or bowlers – and bring them along to our Open Day.

The ‘best joke’ winner was Elaine White with a last minute entry, at last someone has told a better joke than Chris Mussen! Throughout the evening there was also a fun quiz, which everyone took part in, overall the evening was a great success.
