Lawn bowls, as played at Calpe Bowls Club, is an old traditional game played around the world, mostly in English speaking countries but elsewhere as well. You DO NOT have to be British or have English as your mother language to be a member of the club. New members from all countries are welcome to join and we already have members who speak Dutch, Flemish, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Calpe Bowls Club meets up three times a week on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday mornings at 09:30 for a 10:00 start for playing a 'roll-up'. This depends on how many members or visitors are present before teams are selected and play starts which normally lasts for two and a half hours.
If you would like to play then be there at 09:30 but you will need to be wearing a white shirt or blouse. Flat shoes are also a requirement but the club does have some available but not all sizes. Sets of bowls are also available to use and a payment of 8€ is required to pay the equipment and use of the bowls green.
Because of the heat and members holidays no bowls are played from end of June until mid September.
If you have never played lawn bowls before or have never even seen it played before then you can learn more by clicking here.
The main playing season is from October to March inclusive but roll-ups continue until the end of June. The summer months are normally too hot and members are on holiday. Throughout the playing season tuition is available by arrangement and is recommended before taking part in the roll-ups if you haven't played before.
In addition to roll-ups Calpe Bowls Club plays in the Northern Costa Blanca Bowls League and we also have annual internal competitions in the club itself. So there is an opportunity to play several times a week, especially if your are more experienced.
