About Bessingby Park Bowls Club
Inside Our Club House
Bessingby Park Bowls Club is a friendly, vibrant club situated in the heart of Bessingby Park in Ruislip Manor. Formed in 1991. The club was formed when a few indoor bowlers wanted to play outdoors. All they needed was a home, so when the park keeper's hut in the park was vacated by Eastcote Ladies, Bessingby took up residence. We offer you a warm welcome. We currently have a membership of around 40, split fairly evenly between women and men.
We have a brand new state of the art air conditioned pavilion, with a very well equipped kitchen area. There is also a drinks vending machine, which has a large selection of soft and alcholic drinks at competitive prices. This facility was opened by Cllr Ray Puddifoot, the leader of Hillingdon Council and the Worshipful, the Mayor, Cllr Catherine Dann on 26th February 2015.
Outside Our Club House
We have an excellent patio area with tables and chairs and umbrellas, where you can sit and watch the bowls, or have a drink, and relax after you have played!
Our friendly roll up days are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons starting at 2pm, and Wednesday evenings starting at around 6.30pm, wednesday start times vary through out the year and will be updated on the home page ticker tape. You need to arrive 30 mins before we start to guarantee a game. You only need a pair of flat shoes a white shirt and a pair of grey trousers, shorts or a grey skirt , we can supply bowls if you don't have your own.
We play matches against other clubs, during the week and at the weekends. You are under no obligation to play in matches, but we do encourage members to sign up and play. We also have internal competitions. It's up to you if you wish to take part.
Throughout the year, we have social functions such as, quizzes, whist drives and bingo and the occasional race day/evening, some with a fish and chips supper!
