I am no longer a member of West End BC having moved to Devon in 2008 where I have joined Marldon Bowls Club
Consequently this site will no longer be updated by me.
Contact the club Secretary Mr R Summers on 01604 757854 if you wish to join or require further information.
West End BC has a facebook page Click here to find it, if you are a facebook user. (It is a closed group, so you will have to ask to join it.)

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.
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 be asked to play in the National Finals at Leamington Spa.
The Bar is stocked with a
selection of beers and spirits, is open before
and after matches and from 7:30pm most evenings in Summer.
