Congratulations to everyone who took part in this weekend's finals, especially the winners.
Bowls Lancashire County Competitions 2023
We need to plan ahead to next season with regards to our entries for the Bowls Lancashire County Competitions.
I would encourage the bowling members to enter these competitions as it gives you the chance to bowl against bowlers from different teams and on different greens. Last year we had 11 entries in the Gentlemen’s Singles, this season so far I have only 4 names. The more entries we have the more the profile of our club increases and the more our club will grow.
The events you may enter (both Gentlemen and Ladies) are:
Senior Fours (over 55)
The current entries can be seen by following these links to Men’s County Entries and Ladies’ County Entries. In particular we need to find a partners for Brian in the Gentlemen’s Pairs and for Brian and Keith to make up a Four. More Ladies entries are also required – all the Ladies in our club are perfectly capable of winning the county championship !!
If you wish to enter the Pairs, Triples, Fours in teams you have already agreed amongst yourselves then please do so, making it clear to me who is the skip (named contact) for that team If you wish to enter one of these team events but haven't agreed team mates yet then please add your name and we'll put the teams together later
Note: Winning any of these county events results in you qualifying for the National Finals in Leamington played over 2 - 3 weeks end Aug / early Sept so you must be available for this period
The cost is £5 per person per competition entered.
Please inform Dave Lattimore with the details of which competitions you would like to enter

WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We are a friendly club and encourage new bowlers to come and give the game a try. Bowls is a sociable game, a healthy outdoor sport and above all it’s for ALL ages
So, if you are young or not so young, experienced or a beginner, and you would like to give it a try, do come down to our Club just off the Promenade in Kings Gardens, and you will be made very welcome.
Southport Bowling Club offers:-
- Free coaching by qualified instructors
- The loan of equipment, avoiding the need to incur any expense until you are sure the game is for you
Southport Bowling Club is the only Flat Green Bowling Club in the Southport and Liverpool area. Established in 1937 our two bowling greens are located at the south end of the Marine Lake in Kings Gardens just off the Promenade. There is a large clubroom with adjacent changing and locker facilities.
We have a reputation for being a very friendly sociable club and new members are made very welcome. For the new bowler we offer free taster sessions and free coaching plus the loan of suitably sized bowls. The only proviso, you must wear footwear with smooth soles and no heels.
Our playing season begins in April and runs through the summer months to the middle of September. Club roll ups are held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. These games are a relaxed and easy way to learn, improve and play bowls.
Social Bowling may also take place at weekends and in the week when the greens are available and not in use for organised competitions.
For those players wishing to play in a more competitive arena the club enters teams, and individual players enter both National and County competitions. Various Club Leagues run on weekdays for members to enjoy a competitive game in addition to Club Competitions. A number of social events take place throughout the year, Bowl and Dine, Quiz nights, and Bingo. Special themed events take place throughout the summer and also the winter months
We open our second Green to members of the public, with a Green Fee payable.
