There are many other activities to enjoy as a member of our bowls club
This is very similar to short mat but with several differences. The mat or carpet is shorter, the block in the centre is round, and the bowls are smaller and all of uniform size and bias, coloured either black or brown to distinguish the teams.
This version of the sport has proved so popular that the main club now hosts its own Kings Langley Carpet Bowls Club.
Members wear their distinctive orange tops with black trousers and jumpers when playing in league or friendly matches. Otherwise they wear casual clothing for their regular roll ups which are on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm – 9.30pm once again between September and April.
Players need to become social members of the main bowls club in order to join and pay the usual rink fee when attending.
Although most sessions are not too serious members of a more competitive nature are able to take part in county competitions and try out for the county team. One of our teams recently reached the quarter finals of the county triples competition with a second narrowly missing qualifying.
No equipment is needed as the bowls are supplied by the club and the club shirt provided if necessary.
We have a boules rink at the rear of the clubhouse which is available to members at no extra cost and equipment is available for the use of members and guests.
This is another popular activity that carries on throughout the year with only an occasional halt for holidays or special events.
Dancers come along every Thursday for an hour of dancing from 10.00am to 11.00am.
This is followed by tea or coffee, plus biscuits for anyone not too worried about their figure
Although it is predominantly ladies on the dance floor, men are very welcome to join in as well.
Please note that at present sessions have resumed on Tuesday and Thursday with smaller numbers.
Places must be pre-booked.
No refreshments are available.
