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. Thanks to a major grant from Sport England and the National Lottery, we had a new artificial green put down in 2017. 

At the moment it is not the time for outdoor bowls, as soon as the weather improves, hopefully in March, we'll be outside again. Although with our all weather green you may catch members rolling-up on a sunny February day. All year round  we play short-mat bowls indoors, come along any Monday evening from 6.00 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. 

Thanks for your interest and feel free to explore the website further.

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 (7.00 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 7.00 p.m.
  • Short Mat Bowls Monday evenings from 6:00 pm
