This is a message to all club members, both old and new, we urgently need players to fulfil our club friendly fixtures.
Please look on the club notice boards at the forthcoming matches and sign up if your are available to play.
We are struggling at the moment to get full teams together. Cancelling games is not something we like to do, as we are likely to lose those fixtures for next season as affected clubs will not want to play us.

Bedford Borough Bowling Club
Bedford Borough Bowling Club is a private members’ club, which has been an active part of Bedford’s sporting activity for one hundred years - 2011 was the Club’s Centenary Year.
The Club provides for outdoor and indoor bowling. The main outdoor green is an all-weather surface of six rinks, but can be made into seven as the need arises. There are two further lawn rinks which were part of the original outdoor bowls setup, and are in use during the season. The indoor green has six rinks, and the surface was boarded by Dales in April 2010, complete with new underlay and carpet. (For photos of the installation go to ‘News’ and click on ‘Archive’).
Membership of the Club is open to the whole community. Those with a visual impairment or physical disability are welcome, and the Club hosts a Blind Club section.
We have a good car park adjacent to the buildings, and there is a well-stocked bar.
The Club participates in a variety of club, County and National competitions, both outdoor and indoor, and welcomes.
