Beechgrove Bowling Club
Beechgrove Bowling Club was established in 1884 and is still on the same site at Beechgrove in Moffat.
The club currently has a membership of around 60. We welcome new members of all age groups from Moffat or surrounding districts and offer the following introduction to the club:
Potential applicants who have not played the game before are offered a trial period without charge or commitment. The club has a stock of various sized bowls which can be borrowed free of charge.
During the trial, periods of instruction can be offered. Playing bowls is very rewarding, but not quite as simple as it looks! We recognise that training periods on stance and how to deliver the bowl are essential.
Range of annual subscription charges are as follows:
Full Membership: £65 per year
Under 18’s: £7.50 per year
Family Memberships: £125
Country Membership: £35
For new bowlers all charges above are halved for the first year. Also there is a concession for joint family memberships.
The sport has a reputation of being an old man’s game, but it is a sport for young people that old people can still play. The women’s world champion is 18 years old. Bowls is one of the few games where men and women can play on equal terms and where children can play on equal terms with their parents and grandparents.
When can you bowl?
The outdoor bowling season runs from early April until mid September. The green is open every afternoon and every evening each week, and is available for play in the mornings if no maintenance work is being done. Just turn up and join in at 2:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.
Our Bowling Facilities
Approximately £20,000 has been spent on the bowling green area and it is now one of the best playing surfaces in the region. The club runs a series on in-house tournaments as well as competitions with visiting clubs from around the district.
