Information about Haughley Playing Field Bowls Club
The Haughley Bowls Club is situated just 2 miles north of Stowmarket Suffolk in the pretty village of Haughley (IP14 3RA), the green is situated on the villages King George V Playing Field next to the Ron Crascall Pavilion.
The clubs origins date back to the 1920's, and has had many locations around the village over the years. The position of the current green was established in the late 1930's, but laid idle during the war years. The club was reformed in 1946 with extensive work having to be performed on the green.
Many changes have taken place by successive generations of bowlers. Whilst today the current green is considered by some to be one of the best in the Stowmarket area. A massive tribute to all the voluntary workers who have given their time over the years.
The club intends to run a total of seven teams in two local area leagues for the 2016 season - one in Ipswich League or Area 'D' League and six in the Stowmarket League, a number of teams are also entered in various County, League and Charity Cup competitions, it is affiliated to the English Bowling Federation and Suffolk County Bowls Associations.
The club is pleased to have been awarded the hosting of the Suffolk County Newton Trophy home matches for 3 years (2014-2016 3 games each season).
We cater for all standards of play, and are always looking for and welcome new or experienced bowlers of all ages. If required, coaching for new players, the young or the 'young at heart' can be arranged, just come along to the club on any match day and have a chat.
The club currently has approx. 50 full playing members and 15 social members. The outdoor playing season runs from mid April to mid September.
