About us

Epping Bowls Club season 2020 was challenging due to restrictions caused by the corona virus. We opened following guidance from Bowls England. Later our clubhouse was open, also subject to guidance. We were pleased to have bowls played again at the club. Several internal competitions as well as friendly roll ups were much enjoyed and attracted some new members. 

On Saturday 17th April Epping Bowls Club celebrates the opening of the 2021 season. We expect to open as usual following guidelines and some restrictions laid down by Bowls England. 

We are keen to welcome anyone who feels they would like to try bowls. Why not come along to our ‘Come & Try’ days:

Sunday 25th April 10.30-3.00pm

Sunday 9th May 10.30-3.00pm

Epping bowls club has been in existence since 1911. There are both Ladies and Gents sections and when we are free of current restrictions, lots of mixed friendlies throughout the season. 

The club can be a base for beginners, social members and for those who wish to play in more competitive competitions within the county. 

Club members are encouraged to play in some of the in-house club competitions with the silverware being presented at our annual dinner leading up to Christmas. There are also several social nights to attend throughout the outdoor season. The club has a reputation for being a warm and welcoming group and we are especially proud of this. 

Bowls is a social game but like all sports, can have its competitive edge. If you are a beginner, you can take advantage of our coaching sessions and as you progress, you will be exposed to more competitive matches. 

Whatever the result, you can debate it at length while using our bar and canteen facilities. 

There are sets of bowls for you to use until you make your mind up which type suits you best. We have an inexpensive dress code which is relaxed after 17:00 for casual roll ups if there is no other official match in progress. 

The club is run and managed by the committee made up from its members. Everyone though has a part to play in keeping the grounds playable and maintaining the facilities.
