to the vagaries of the British climate the Outdoor Bowling season is normally 20-22
weeks long. In order to keep our membership stimulated and occupied
during the dark and dreary months we run a programme of winter
activities. These activities are open to all full and social members of
the club and normally run from close of play in the Autumn until opening time
in the Spring.
Sundays at 10.00am & Thursdays at 7pm
game of Carpet Bowls is a gentle variation of the standard outdoor bowls
game. It is played indoors on a carpet 30-33 feet long and 6-6.5 feet
wide. A smaller biased version of outdoor bowls are used in this game, being
approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. A circular wooden obstruction is
situated in the centre of the rink forcing bowlers to use the bias in their
bowls to draw round the obstruction.
Carpet Bowls Section has two carpets with bowls for use by the
members. We also enter a team in the Clacton and District Carpet Bowls
League and have been very successful in recent years.
