YOUR LOCAL CLUB – Just off the A414 behind the TALBOT

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.
We were recently visited informally by our local MP Sir Eric Pickles, to find out how much he enjoyed himself and our hospitality click on our new 'Sir Eric' page. He has promised to try to return next spring to attend one of our New Bowls Green launch days. To find out more about our proposed new playing surface and our lottery grant success click here to see a copy of our newsletter.
Thanks for your interest and feel free to explore the website further.
Also starting this spring will be our Play Bowls 4 Fun programme  sessions. A four session, once a week course offering a fun, informal and relaxed introduction to the sport of Bowls. The course is ideal for beginners and those wishing to try a new sport, it is open to all.

Bowls will always be our raison d'être but if not sports minded, how about the social side.
Regular activities include 
  • Whist nights on alternate Saturday evenings (7.15 pm). 
  • If you are a Bridge enthusiast at any level then we'd be glad to see you at our Wednesday morning sessions starting at 9:30 and finishing around 1:00 p.m.
  •  Table Tennis club  on Thursday evenings from September
  • Short Mat Bowls – Monday evenings from 7:00
