Highworth Bowls Club

Open Day – Big Success

On a beautiful late May day, Highworth BC held their Open Day as part of the Bowls Big Weekend.

Lots of members were present to help with the many tasks that make such a day a success, or simply to watch and add atmosphere to proceedings. 

We were delighted that 28 potential bowlers tried their hand at the sport under the excellent guidance of Stuart our coach and his happy band of helpers. 

Members and visitors enjoyed the lovely cakes baked by members and took the chance to have a cup of tea or the occasional stronger beverage. 

A great day, full of fun and friendship which really is at the heart of what our game should be.


Highworth play hosts to Bowls Wiltshire Ladies

On a bright Tuesday 23rd May Highworth were proud to host the friendly match between Bowls Wiltshire Ladies and their counterparts from Oxfordshire. 

A small band of volunteers worked hard to prepare the green, man the bar and produce a delicious meal for the approx 40 visitors. 

Whilst not important Wiltshire came out on top on the day and also seemed to snatch most raffle prizes!

Many thanks to all of the club volunteers some who gave up the whole day to ensure the club was shown in the best possible light.
