Market Overton Bowls Club

Bowling Green Lane, Market Overton, LE15 7PH

Market Overton Bowls Club is situated in the heart of a small village, having been founded in 1945, and it has been at the current site in the village since the late 70s, the aptly named ‘Bowling Green Lane’. We are lucky to have a proactive group of members who are anxious to encourage the sport, which can be enjoyed by a wide section of the population, regardless of age, gender, or physical ability.

All are welcome, whether experienced or not - we are but a phone call away. There are lots of opportunities for anyone who fancies "having a go". No equipment is needed - we will supply bowls etc. Just telephone the Secretary. We also have apparatus available for those not so fit to help them enjoy the game, as well as some interesting ways to introduce young people to the sport. Flat shoes or bare feet are all that is required. 

Due to the Covid restrictions, our 75th anniversary celebrations were held over until 2021, when we enjoyed a match against Bowls England. We are members of the Disability Bowls England and indeed hope to welcome them to a match this summer. There is a full calendar ahead and a better idea of our activities can be followed on our website at 

We are members of the Stamford League, in 2022 fielding a single team, but with many of our members taking part on a rota system. In 2023 we will be fielding two teams - Market Overton Tornadoes and Market Overton Harriers. Our bowlers also participate in the King's Cup competition and the Melton Triples League, having successfully won this competition in 2019, as well as competitions run by the Stamford League. 

Bowlers also enjoy many Friendly Fixtures with other local clubs. A Triples Gala is arranged for Sunday 9th July 2023.

During the winter we provide social entertainment for ourselves and the local community - carpet bowls, quizzes, race nights, plus some fund raising activities when we can. Our venue is also available for functions to members of the community. We are proud of our super green, pretty gardens, smart clubhouse and bar, plus plenty of parking.

Come and join us for FUN, FITNESS AND FRIENDSHIP
