Mossley Hill Athletic Club have run a winter bowls league over the past 7 years, normally we have 8 teams, with 8 a side games . This means a game each week for every team, either on a Monday or Wednesday. The season normally runs from October to mid December, with a break to mid January then through to March. There is a league format and two cup competitions, one individual and one pairs, these are handicapped. Also there are end of season individual and pairs competitions.  For teams there are costs of £10 league fees and £8 per cup competition, plus £2 for every player registered and £1 per player for each league game. All league and cup fees are paid out as prize money, weekly fee goes to the club  The surface is an artificial green and whilst some people do not think this is true bowls, it does mean that it is very unusual that games are postponed due to the weather.Currently teams are not all strictly based on summer club teams and it’s quite likely you know someone who plays there.

Due to the extraordinary conditions of last year we now have vacancies for 2 teams, if as a club, or as an individual you would like to play, then please contact either of the people listed below.  Please note that in order to draw up fixtures closing date for teams will be; 30th September players will be allowed to join teams up to; 31st Decembe
