Update 15th January 2021
Well we made it through 2020 and were really lucky that some 30+ members, children from the Summer School and visitors to our taster days were able to enjoy some bowls in a COVID safe way. Lots of sanitisation, hand washing, not sharing equipment and of course social distancing was a feature. Only casualty has been a few of our rubber mats which have disintegrated with all the sanitiser put on them!!
Now the committee is busy planning and getting ready for 2021 when we all hope that the vaccination programme will allow us to move towards a new normal. It is very encouraging that already a number of our members have had their first dose!! Newsletters will be going out (see the news page) and updates on this website will be happening over coming weeks so please do have a look. If you have not already done so please sign up for alerts so that you know when newsletters are issued.
Biddenden Bowls Club is a friendly outdoor bowls club located in the beautiful Kent village of Biddenden. During the season from April to September, the club has weekly rollups, friendly matches, league games and a variety of club competitions. The club is a part of the Village Halls and Sports Group.
With a mixture of playing and social members, we are proud to be a small and friendly village club making bowling available to all from beginners to experienced bowlers and all in between. Our members include people who just want to play social bowls at the club whilst others want to play in league games, competitions, tournaments and county knock outs. All are valued club members.
Biddenden Bowls Club is totally committed to providing facilities and support to bowlers of all ages and abilities and to ensuring that the club is accessible and inclusive to all including those with any form of impairment or disability. To learn more about the equipment and facilities which are available and the club's plans to continue to develop and improve these please see "Our Club - Inclusion & Accessibility".
A coaching programme is in place with group sessions and one to one support available.
The club has 2 teams in the Weald League (mixed triples) and one in the Maidstone League (mens triples) and hosts its popular Ladies Open Triples Tournament in August.
A range of social and community events take place throughout the year, including the annual presentation lunch, quiz night, BBQs and picnics on competition days.
New members of any ability are always welcome and can come along to our April Open Day or a Thursday rollup to meet the members, get some tips and have a go. Several sets of bowls are available for general use and initially all you need to bring along is yourself and a pair of flat soled shoes. If you want to know more please join us on a Thursday afternoon or get in touch via our contacts page.
