We’re ready for you at Abergavenny Bowls Club


The Avenue Road club is well equipped to welcome new members for the coming season. The green has been well prepared and with the help of a grant from Community Chest we have purchased new bowls and specialist coaching equipment to assist new and older members at the club. The grant also allowed for the training of extra Coaches and First Aiders and they will be ready to greet you at the “ New Member “ sessions planned for the start of the season.

Don’t worry if you haven’t played before, we all started in a nervous sort of way but with help and guidance from the coaches and others at the club you will soon feel at home in the welcoming atmosphere of Abergavenny Bowls Club.

We have also been fortunate to receive sponsorship from two Abergavenny businesses. Christie Residential has provided sufficient funding to buy two new sets of bowls and The Auberge Bar and Restaurant in Frogmore Street has become the clubs main sponsor and the Auberge name will be carried on the new club shirts purchased with some of the sponsorship money received. We are extremely grateful for this support from The Auberge. 2018 will also see the introduction of a dedicated “ Mixed Team” playing friendly matches against teams from amongst others, Chepstow, Caldicot, Brecon, Hay-On -Wye, Hereford to name a few and an exciting fixture against a touring team from Basingstoke has been arranged for late August. We welcome everyone to the club where there is something for everyone to enjoy. This is an ideal sport for families to play together and whatever your ability you can be guaranteed a warm welcome, lots of help and a place in the mixed team will improve your game very quickly. We supply all the equipment you need to practice with, you only having to bring a pair of trainers.

Interested? Then we would love to meet you and for this reason we have arranged two “New Member Welcome Social Evenings” especially for you to“Try Bowls”
