Welcome to our website. If you live in West Essex you'll be glad you've found us. We're a small friendly club offering access to outdoor bowls, indoor short mat bowls and other activities like table tennis, bridge and social events. We're always looking for new members and our subscriptions are the lowest in the area. We'd especially like to hear from bowlers or anyone wishing to take up bowls. Our outdoor season starts in April but if you are interested in joining or trying bowls please contact us. Our big news is we are currently having a new artificial green put down, this sand free surface will be ready for the new season starting in April 2017. To see photos of the progress of the work click here. During the winter season we play short-mat bowls indoors, come along any Monday evening from 7.00 pm. For either just come along in a pair of flat shoes and introduce yourself to a member. We'll make you feel really welcome and let you try putting up a wood or two. We'll also tell you about all the other things Bantham & Ongar Bowls Club has to offer.
