Highworth’s two skittles teams have got off to solid starts in their respective Swindon & District Friday Skittles leagues, lying joint-second & fourth after the first month of competition . Whilst it is early days, the Robins can hit the top of their league if they avoid being whitewashed in their game in hand on the leaders.
It takes a lot of effort to keep a bowling green in good condition.
At the end of the season the green is given a lot of attention before it takes a well-earned rest, recovering and improving over the winter, ready for the following season..
The 2017 Club Competition Finals were held on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd of September. Congratulations to all the winners, commiserations to the runners up, and thanks to Competition Secretaries Chris Hidden – and all who organised, assisted, marked or supported us over the finals weekend.

‘Get on the Green!’ Highworth Bowls Club is inviting visitors to its Open Day on Saturday 13th May 2017, from around 10:30am to 3:00pm.
If you’ve ever thought about trying lawn bowling, here’s your chance to get a ‘taster’ bowling session on the Highworth green. No need to book – just turn up on the day, and our members will be happy to show you the Club and talk to you about membership.
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 – after bowling throughout the summer, we play short mat bowls, crib, and league skittles throughout the winter – and new members are most welcome.
Members: remember to ‘bring a friend’..
