Welcome to Indoor Bowling

Our Indoor Green

Kingsthorpe Bowling Club are a friendly club with excellent Indoor facilities and are always looking for new bowlers to continue the success of the club.

There are 6 Indoor rinks, all having an excellent playing surface and LED overhead lighting allowing the club to provide bowls events at the highest level. As you can imagine, we are extremely proud of our facilities which have been designed specifically for your bowling pleasure.

The club offers league matches for Men, Ladies and Mixed Teams, seven days a week covering all formats of play, Singles, Pairs, Aussie Pairs, Triples, Fours, and Drawn Competitions. You will also have the opportunity to play in Club matches plus County and National competitions.

Social bowling events are run on a regular basis for players of all abilities and are a great way to improve your bowling and make new friends.

We offer a variety of “Non-match” times when you can use the green to improve your skills. If you have a big enough group, you may be able to hire the whole indoor green on an exclusive basis.

The club operates a rink booking service via the new BOWLR software which can be accessed via the website link, your computer or mobile phone app.
Bowlr gives members access to rink booking, current league and competition fixtures along with basic membership contact details to facilitate match arrangement.

Whether you have been bowling all of your life or are new to the sport, we hope that you will enjoy your time with us.

Summer Indoor Leagues & Competitions

During the summer months, May – Sept, many of our Indoor bowlers play outdoors, either at Kingsthorpe or one of the many other clubs around the county. During these months a reduced program of Indoor leagues and events are run. A full list of the summer leagues, fixtures and up-to-date league positions can be found by visiting BOWLR using the links below.

Coaching

The club has three Level 1 qualified coaches, a Bowls England and Nationally Recognised Qualification. For people who are new to bowls, or have never even tried it before, we offer a free taster session which can be followed up with four two-hour, coaching sessions. You only pay our standard rink fee for each of these sessions as the coaches give their time for free.

In addition to the new bowler sessions, our coaches can offer “Technique Coaching” for anyone who would like their stance or delivery checking or just a general refresh of their game.

If you’d like more information please complete the contact form and select “Coaching” from the Type of Enquiry dropdown and one of our coaches will get back to you.
