Crown Green Bowls Section

Crown Green Bowls

Crown green bowls is played at Broughton on a floodlit green.

Team Play

There are eight bowls teams playing in four different Leagues during the period from April to September. We have two teams (A and B), playing on Monday evenings, in the Longridge & District Mixed Bowling League and two teams (also A and B) entered in the Woodplumpton & District Bowling League and playing on Wednesday evenings. All these teams are in Mixed Leagues open to both men and women. We have a ladies only team in the Ladies Over Wyre Afternoon League which plays on Tuesday afternoons. New members are welcome, particularly in the evening leagues.

There are three Veterans' teams, two of whom (again A and B) play in the Woodplumpton & District Veterans' Bowling League on Thursday afternoons and one in the Longridge & District Mixed Veterans' Bowling League on Wednesday afternoons.

Floodlit League

In previous years a team has been entered in the North Preston Floodlit League, playing two matches each week (home and away) from September to October. In 2014, unfortunately, we were unable to field a team because of lack of support. However, if there is renewed interest in the future, the Section will happily support a team in this League.

Social Bowling

Unless otherwise in use (or unfit for play in wet weather), the bowling green is open every day from 10.00 a.m. for use by Bowls Section members. Many members regularly play socially on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. New members will be made welcome but it may be better for beginners to play during quieter periods.
