Bowls Wiltshire Ladies Champion of Champions 2023 – result

Tonight our ladies captain played in the North section semi- final of the Bowls Wiltshire Ladies Champion of Champions at Highworth and was up against Linda Young, Yvonne won 21-15 and progresses to the Finals at Devizes to play Ali Noyes from Amesbury B.C. over the weekend 9th/10th Sept.

Well done Yvonne, a great result.

The final took place on Saturday 9th Sept, unfortunately Yvonne had to retire due to illness when the score was 5-13, congratulation to Yvonne for reaching the final and well done to Ali for winning.

New Club Signage June/July 2023

Visitors now have a sign visible from Anchor Road for the club, hopefully the Council will eventually put a sign up by the library in town, to help visitors to find the club.

17th June 2023 new signage

And as if by magic the road signage of the A4 has been erected, many thanks to all involved in getting this done.

May 2023 Calne Bowls Club Open Days




Imagine Cruising Sponsors Day Held on Sunday 13th August 2023

On a very overcast day. there was a great deal of fun, luckily the rain held off in the main and everyone enjoyed themselves. Unfortunately I do not have the name of all the handsome people photographed, but I am sure you will recognise yourselves.


Great News for the club!

As you will see in the March 2023 message, we now have planning permission for our new pavilion.

Next stage is that we need to fund the £130,000 to build it!

Architects have designed the new building so that it will be suitable for all abilities. This will enable us to open up to disabled groups and offer better facilities to all members. If you feel you can help, please speak to a member of our committee.

Once we have raised the funds and have built the pavilion, we will have premises that the town of Calne can be proud of and can be used by all the community groups that are interested in bowls.
