No. 6 MARKET OVERTON

posted 6 Jul 2014, 15:00 by Stamford Bowls League   [ updated 28 Jan 2019, 22:11 ]
Situated in the aptly named Bowling Green Lane, Market 

Overton, the club was formed in 1945. We have two teams in 

the Stamford League, the Tornadoes and the Harriers. Our bowlers also play in Friendly matches and Melton Triples.  Every Thursday evening is a roll up where bowlers can hone their skills or newcomers just have a go. First three visits are free of charge. It is a good time to come along if you are considering the game.  However alternatively  one to one sessions can also be arranged. No equipment is required initially other than flat soled shoes. 

 

Our club has a reputation for a warm and friendly welcome 


and members enjoy the use of the club house, bar, good 


parking and a fantastic green.  Thanks to Richard Shepherd 


from Queniborough who has put in hours of work for us and 


our own greenkeeping team we now have one of the best 


greens in the county. 


 

Two Galas are held each year and the dates for 2019  are 14th 


July and 1st September. The finals of the Boor and Wainwright 


competition will be held at the venue on Sunday 31st August.  



Visitors welcome.
