|The Clubs History:|
The Club was formed in 1925, all men in the village being eligible. Subscriptions were set at 2/6 (12.5p) per year. Colonel Thin, who owned the Hall allowed the Club to use his lawn. Four pairs of bowls were purchased at a cost of 29 Shillings (1.50) per pair. In 1926 two matches were arranged with Broadway.
By 1935 matches were held with Tewkesbury, Bredon, Pershore (Brotherhood & Abbey), Blockley and Mickleton.
In 1950 there was a change of ‘ground’ to the Old Rectory Lawn.
In 1951 all bowls and mats were lost in a fire at the Rectory, generous donations from Kemerton and Evesham Police clubs, which enabled 4 pairs of bowls to be purchased, Evesham Police also donated bowls surplus to their requirements. In those days the keeper of the bowls would turn up with a sack full of bowls, tip them on the green, and the players had to sort out a matching pair.
The present green was laid down by members in 1958.
The Club became affiliated to the County Association in 1991.
We are still a small village Club and are well known for the variety of livestock surrounding our landlocked green.
