GENERAL.DETAILS

The Connaught Bowls Club is based in Station Road, adjacent to the Recreation Ground in the growing market town of Attleborough in the Breckland area of South Norfolk. Attleborough itself is directly accessible from the main A11 trunk road and canbroadly be described as north of Thetford and south of Wymondham.

The Club operates on a volunteer basis with a main Management Committee, under the Club Chairman, overseeing all business matters. The Ladies Section and the Short Mat Section have their own committee structures to deal with the day to day detail in their respective areas but representatives from these two sections are members of the Management Committee and report to it.

The Club provides Short Mat Bowls in the winter and Outdoor Bowls (EBA) in the summer. It is housed in a modern and comfortable pavilion whose facilities include a fully-licensed members’ bar. The bar is run by members on a voluntary basis and charges moderate prices. The pavilion contains two mats for the Short Mat section. Outdoors the main facility is the

 

full-sized six-rink bowling green maintained to high standards.

 

Membership numbers vary from year to year but usually are within a range of 135-160 if all categories are included.

Annual subscriptions as due from 1 January 2011 are:

 

Under State Retirement Pension age £35.00

 

Over State Retirement Pension age £30.00

 

Juniors (aged 16 and under)£12.50

 

Social (non-playing) Members £10.00

 

Life Members NIL

 

Green and Mat Fees are also payable, as is usual with Bowls Clubs, at a general rate of £2 per game effective from I January 2012.

 

With effect from 24 April 2004 the Club was recognised as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) by the Inland Revenue. CASC status recognises the amateur, community-based focus of a sports club and brings certain financial benefits, including a high level of mandatory rates relief and some of the rights given to charities.

 

The club is open, for Short Mat or Outdoor Bowls as appropriate, for seven days a week. The bowls available comprise purely friendly internal matches, internal leagues and other competitions, and a wide variety of friendly and competitive matches against other clubs. In the summer touring teams from other parts of the country are often entertained and the club also hosts Norfolk county matches from time to time.

 

Very family-oriented, the club prides itself on a friendly social atmosphere and holds a regular programme of social functions (dinners, parties, quizzes, theatre trips, seaside trips etc). The pavilion is sometimes hired by members for private functions. It is also used fortnightly by the Attleborough Probus Club and by a community singing group “Sing Your Heart Out”..

 

New members, for whom coaching is available, are always welcomedby this leading Attleborough Sports Club. People new to the area will find the Club, with its wide mix of local members, a good introduction to the town of Attleborough itself.
