Wollerton Bowls and Social Club

Members of Wollerton Bowls Club

Wollerton is a small club and these days members are drawn from across the Market Drayton area. The club is situated in Mill Lane, Wollerton and offers a warm welcome to anyone interested in taking up crown green bowling. Overlooking open fields, the club has some of the lowest membership fees in the locality. Founded in 1932, the club is thought to be one of the oldest crown green bowling clubs in Shropshire. It is also said to have been the first bowling green in the county to have floodlights installed.

WBSC_ClubLogoSThe club is looking to recruit new members of all ages and abilities. It offers a free six week trial membership to potential new members, along with taster sessions. No experience is necessary and prospective members of all ages will be welcome. We have spare bowls available and members willing to explain the basics of the game.

For further information about membership or trial sessions please contact either Randall Hardy tel: 01952-540970 or email or Jenny Morgan tel: 01630-685251. Click here to find us on a map.

During the bowling season the club runs two teams in the Market Drayton Bowling League on Monday evenings and one team in the Whitchurch & District Bowling League on Thursday evenings. We also have a team in the Barlows Bowling League which plays on Tuesdays and another in the Market Drayton Seniors Bowling League which plays on a Wednesday afternoon. Players of all abilities are welcome to get involved with our league and knockout teams.

We also run several in club knock-out competitions during the season.

During the winter the club organises a mid-week, indoor short-mat league at the Beacon Community Centre in Market Drayton. This attracts players for a number of different clubs in the area and more would be welcome. For those with a less competitive edge, we hold a Monday night relaxed indoor session on our own short-mat at the club.
