CLUBHOUSE

After serious consideration the committee have decided not to re-open the clubhouse and bar at the moment. This decision will be reviewed at the next committee meeting at the end of August beginning of September, when hopefully things have changed.
 
This decision has not been taken lightly and we feel that the disadvantages of opening the clubhouse and bar far outweigh the advantages.
 
This virus is still out there, and our club members health is far more important than the financial implications.
 
We realise everyone will not agree with this decision, but for a small club like ours safety is paramount. We will endeavour to re-open when we are happy that is safe to do so.
 
Stay Safe

History

Bridgnorth Bowling Club (B.B.C) was founded in 1596 and is one of the oldest clubs in the UK. It was originally located at the Hundred House on the Ludlow Road but moved to its present location in 1906 when the land was leased from Apley Estates.

The current clubhouse was built in 1997 following a Lottery grant and we believe it to be one of the best in Shropshire. .

The club runs a number of teams in the local leagues of Mid Shropshire and Highley

Additionally the club has a strong social side and holds regular weekend events. One of our longstanding traditions is the Thursday night tea that has been running for decades. It is followed by an evening of social bowling where new and old members bowl in an informal competition.
