Connaught Bowls Club

connaught bowls club

The Connaught Bowls Club is based in Station Road, adjacent to the Recreation Ground in the growing market town of Attleborough in the Breckland area of South Norfolk.

Attleborough itself is directly accessible from the main A11 trunk road and can broadly be described as north of Thetford and south of Wymondham.

The Club operates on a volunteer basis with a main Management Committee, under the Club Chairman, overseeing all business matters. The Ladies Section and the Short Mat Section have their own committee structures to deal with the day to day detail in their respective areas but representatives from these two sections are members of the Management Committee and report to it.

The Club provides Short Mat Bowls in the winter and Outdoor Bowls (EBA) in the summer. It is housed in a modern and comfortable pavilion whose facilities include a fully-licensed members’ bar.

The bar is run by members on a voluntary basis and charges moderate prices. The pavilion contains two mats for the Short Mat section. Outdoors the main facility is the full-sized six-rink bowling green maintained to high standards.

Short Mat Bowls

The club is open, for Short Mat or Outdoor Bowls as appropriate, for seven days a week.

The bowls available comprise purely friendly internal matches, internal leagues and other competitions, and a wide variety of friendly and competitive matches against other clubs.

In the summer touring teams from other parts of the country are often entertained and the club also hosts Norfolk county matches from time to time.
