Latest update: 17th October 2021
IT IS WITH SADNESS THAT WE REPORT THE PASSING OF MRS PAT PAGET, WHO WAS A FORMER LONG TERM MEMBER OF OUR CLUB. PAT WAS VERY ACTIVE, ALONG WITH HER LATE HUSBAND, JOHN, AND WAS LADIES CAPTAIN FROM 2004 TO 2006.
OUR SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO HER FAMILY
Our greens are now CLOSED for the winter, with end of season maintenance in progress.
Lets hope that 2022 is a much better year for all of us, and that we can get back to bowling.
On the plus side, we have been delighted to welcome some new members, who have thrown themselves into the game, and enjoyed some good matches and practice sessions
Our thoughts now turn to winter carpet bowls, with the Club entering 2 teams in the Falmouth and Camborne Carpet Bowls League, and social roll ups continuing during selected afternoons. If you are interested in the game/social interaction, why not give us a call on 01326-251133, or fill in the “Contact Us” form on this site. Its an “easy” game using small woods on an indoor carpet, and the tea and biscuits are nice as well!
Mawnan Bowling Club
was established in 1924. We are a friendly village club and wish to encourage all new bowlers, especially those who have never bowled before. Bowls is a game for all, regardless of age or ability. If you join us when life returns to normal, you will have fun and meet new people. For those who have a competitive spirit there are plenty of opportunities, whilst the social bowler will find the good company we pride ourselves on.
The Club play in County Mens’ and Ladies’ Leagues. We also offer a mixed competition,- “Strollers” – which is aimed at those new to the game. In normal times,throughout the season we have our informal outdoor “roll ups” on Tuesday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm. We also play a number of friendlies, home or away, with other clubs throughout the West and Mid Cornwall areas. Then, of course, we have our Club Competitions, where ALL members are encouraged to take part.
Our Bowling Club is in the centre of the village on Carwinion Road and has plenty of onsite parking. We have two 3 rink greens which host our League and also County Competitions. The greens are normally open from mid-April until the end of September with the rinks being available, weather permitting, every morning, except Monday, from 10am. Both greens have Disabled access. Part of our club vision is to encourage youth groups to participate in the sport. That’s why we have been pleased to train pupils from Mawnan Smith Junior School in the game of bowls, as they prepare for the Cornwall Schools Competition .
Throughout the year, in normal circumstances, our indoor carpet bowlers meet on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (and other times by arrangement) for social bowling, and the club enters a team in the Falmouth & Camborne Carpet Bowls league. Below sees “A” team captain Ray Robinson, being presented in 2019 with the Division 1 Winners Trophy.
The Club House has full kitchen facilities , with disabled amenities throughout the building. It is available for hire at a reasonable hourly rate. The car park can accommodate 30+ cars.
