Welwyn & District Bowls Club is owned and run by the members for the members. We have one of the finest greens in Hertfordshire.
Our club maintains its own bowls green, clubhouse, bar, and kitchen facilities. We offer an excellent opportunity for players of all levels and the ability to enjoy bowls.
Whether you are new to bowls and keen to try out the sport for the first time, or you are an established player looking for a club to join us as a member; there will be a warm welcome for you at our club.
We offer a comprehensive range of activities to suit the individual including, three weekly roll-ups, internal club competitions, and midweek and weekend friendly fixtures with other local clubs. More experienced bowlers can also participate in county, national, district, league, and club representative matches.
We have an excellent team of qualified coaches who offer free support and advice to all new bowlers, and those wishing to develop their game.
The WGC 100 Bowls Trophy has been won by Welwyn and District Bowls Club and the trophy was presented on Saturday 25 September 2021.
The Centenary League Competition was set up for 2020 but played a year later after Covid. All matches were played as an inter-club tournament between Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Parkside, Shire Park and Welwyn & District Bowls Clubs. It was a great success and all triple mixed matches were played in the mornings with 9 club players on three rinks. Next year, North Mymms and Northaw & Cuffley Bowls Clubs hope to play in this new local annual competition. Each triple must contain at least one man and one women, therefore a minimum of 3 men and 3 women in each team of the 9 people playing in each club. In 2021, Welwyn and District Bowls Club had 19 club players that rotated on different match dates. The team each raised a virtual glass of Whisky on the green to toast the late, Royce Venting, who was a very keen local competitive WDBC member.
All matches in this new competition were played in a competitive and friendly spirit. We all thank the WGC Centenary Organisation for their support and a special thank you goes to both Eric Walsby and John Beech for their enthusiasm and encouragement. We must also thank Stewart Parkhouse from WGC BC for his excellent work administrating the league in its inaugural year. We also thank HRJ Foreman Laws Solicitors for their sponsorship of the event and support. We are all now looking forward to the 2022 season. For more details of how we did.
