The Clubs History:      
       

In the 1950's, Worcester City Council employees were playing on a green at Perdiswell, which coincidentally later became the site of an indoor bowls club. After the pavilion was burnt down, there was a move to Cripplegate and, in 1960, a little bowls club was formed with a big title - the National Association of Local Government Officers Worcester City Branch Sports and Social Club Bowls Section.

Apart from a short move next door to the Hylton Club in the early 90's, NALGO BC continued its modest existence at Cripplegate but changed names, firstly to Unison and in 2004 to Grosvenor BC and subsequently became an original member of the Consortium of Cripplegate Bowlers.

Success on the greens has been limited with the undoubted highlight being Runners-up in the 1999 Vernon Turner Cup.
