Welcome to the Website for Clock House (Upminster) Bowling Club
Observations made by an established member.
When changing ends bowlers are not to stand around the head to discuss the state of play.
Mobile phones are not to be used on the green or whilst playing.
Bowlers are to stand behind the Jack at all times.
Bowlers are not to move or wave arms around while a Bowler is preparing to Bowl.
"I have mentioned to many of you that bowls takes a few years to get a grip of.
It is best to get into good habits now which will of course make it easier in the future"
So leading on from these observations, some may like to start with this:

Members, please take a look at this quick video, just to see what the website has to offer.
It may unlock a few surprises for those who have not gone beyond the “Home” page.

BBC Gardeners World
On Sunday morning 8th March, 20 members of the Club very kindly came along for the first of this years Best Bowls Club gardening sessions. A great turnout.
Ditch clearing, green spiking, planting about 60 plants, yes 60, bench sanding, clubhouse roof and gutter cleaning and a general clean up of grounds. Something for everyone.
Sausages and bread pud plus tea and coffee was supplied and eagerly consumed. All done in a great atmosphere of team work. Thanks to everyone who came along.
Due to popular demand and to allow those who were disappointed at not being able to attend, we will be holding a second session on Sunday 29th March at 10am.
