Victoria Ladies Bowling Club was inaugurated in 1945 and this year, 2015, we are proud to be celebrating our 70th year.
We currently have a membership of around 41 playing and social members. We enjoy a very full programme of matches, both friendly and competitive, we also play in County matches. In 2014 we won the Chalkwell Jubilee League beating the other 13 clubs in the league, which is a ladies only league, also winning the Sutton Windsor Insurance Ladies Triples trophy.
We bowl on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings starting at 10am. These are our club mornings, starting the end of April to the end of September. The greens are open during this period 7 days a week.
We are lucky to have the use of four bowling greens within beautiful Priory Park, which we share with two other independent clubs, Prittlewell Bowls Club (mixed) and Prittlewell Ladies. The three clubs, although completely independent of each other when bowling, share many social events and have come together to form the Priory Park Associated Bowling Clubs with regard to the financing and running of the pavilion which we all share.
Victoria Ladies are a very caring club who also have a very sociable side and have enjoyed coach trips and social events in the summer and the winter months when outdoor bowls is not possible. The pavilion hosts short mat bowling during the winter months which is a good way to while away a morning and get out of the house! All three clubs participate.
Victoria Ladies welcome new members and can offer coaching for beginners and a gentle introduction to bowls so please contact our Secretary Maureen Weedon on 01702 437637 or fill in the form which can be found on our contact page.
This is an introduction to a fun, healthy and sociable pastime where you make new friends and learn a new skill and you will wonder why you did not do it years ago!
Please feel free to come along and meet us during our club mornings. We can provide bowls for you to try and all you need is a pair of flat-soled shoes. We look forward to seeing you.
