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. 


Plans are in hand for our 75th celebration in 2020 so watch this
