Members in the clubhouse
The club was founded in
1897 near Franklins Gardens, Northampton, (Now the home
Club) and moved in 1963 to its current site in Mendip
Road. The move included the
clubhouse and the turf off the green.
For the 2008 season, the
club once again has a full summer of Thursday and
Saturday afternoon friendly matches against other local
clubs, two teams in the Monday night triples league, also a program of Ladies matches.
More members are always
welcome, both male and female, especially players who
will play in the Thursday and Saturday men's sides or the
ladies team. Enthusiasm is as important as ability.
(Otherwise I would never have got in the side.)
In addition to the friendly games, the club enters teams in a range of knockout competitions and evening leagues and members are encouraged to enter County and Club Competitions. Any bowler who reaches the finals of County Competitions will progress to the National Finals at Worthing (Men) or Leamington Spa. (Ladies)
