2013 Season - Bowls
Mondays 10-12.00 and Fridays 18-20:00 Weekly - We meet up for friendly roll-ups where anyone can come and join in. Usually, we sort out some teams and have informal matches as practice for the real thing. When we finish play, we usually go into the clubhouse and have tea, coffee and biscuits. Dress code is informal - most players tend to wear grey trousers and white tops but nobody really minds. Bowling shoes (or for try-outs flat shoes such as indoor racquet shoes are compulsory to avoid damage to the green).
We play lawn bowls matches internally and externally most Saturdays (14:00 for 14:30 start). Saturdays and Cup Days we wear whites - shirt/t-shirt with white trousers for gents, white trousers or skirts for ladies. Weekday games are white top, grey trousers or skirts. We play some weekday matches usually on Thursday afternoons at 14:30 and our Herts League Matches on Wednesday evenings at 18:00.
All matches and trophy days are detailed on the fixtures page (and on the fixtures calendar on the clubhouse notice board.) You can read more about the club, its history and members on some of the following pages.
Every year, we hold a number of internal competitions. All full members can take part. There are team trophies such as the Hopkins Cup and Frazer Shield and informal ones such as the Australian Pairs. There are also individual ones such as The Bunting Scroll and, of course, the Marjorie Marshall Trophy played for by the ladies after the traditional lunch out! View the Roll of Honours.

Play and Facilities
For people who want to play bowls at a friendly club near to Hemel or near to Berkhamsted, it is ideally placed.
Bowls is a game for all ages so come on... if you’ve ever thought it would be fun to try or if you are a player who wants to take it up again, if you live near Hemel, Tring or Berkhamsted or perhaps in a village near Gaddesden such as Dagnell or Northall, why not come over and join us for a friendly roll-up.
And by the way, you’ll be welcome to stop for a drink in the clubhouse afterwards if you’ve got time
