Our Facilities

 

 

 

 

Sixpenny Handley Bowls Club now has, we believe, one of the best lawn green bowling facilities in Dorset. The Club ground, with a recently renewed synthetic ALL WEATHER Green and a new purpose built Club House, is located at the village Recreational Ground, providing ideal conditions and facilities for playing bowls.

Our carpet style synthetic outdoor bowls surface is UV stable and may be used in wet weather conditions while maintaining a high degree of consistency in the playing surface during matches and highly tolerant to changes in weather conditions.

2013 New Synthetic Green

Our membership volunteers help to keep our facilities in tip top condition for the comfort of our members and visiting teams competing in League or Friendly/Touring matches as well as for our own satisfaction on Club tournaments and practise sessions.

Our synthetic green not only gives consistent bowling but from the Club's perspective requires minimum maitenance which saves cost and also means that all members can assist our Green Keeper and join in to help keep the green free from leaves, twigs and other natural debris brought along by inclement weather conditions and wildlife.

Maintenance work in the Club House is a main feature mostly during the winter months in carrying out decorating, repairs and improvements to keep the Club House and the areas surrounding our Green in a condition which is enjoyable to ALL users.

All six of our rinks are synthetic which provides for all-year bowling with the exception of severe adverse weather conditions such as snow and ice.

2013 New Club House

We have an extensive range of bowling equipment such as Score Indicators; Bowling Mats; Jacks; Spare Bowls; Bowls Collectors and measuring tapes, everything required for bowling league, friendly, touring and Club events play. This ensures that we provide a serious and professional feel to our bowling games for members and visitors alike.

The Sports Pavilion has changing facilities for men and women and the Club House has a kitchen for provision of after match and social event refreshments. We have a small but well stocked licensed bar which is available for after play as well as Social Events and Club Nights.

We are able to provide Short Mat Bowling in the nearby Village Hall during the winter season. This is available to all playing members on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons October - March. This is very popular with members who like to keep bowling in the winter in a warm environment with a good social atmosphere.

We use three Short Mats in the Village Hall and can provide refreshments using the excellent kitchen facilities available.

Village Hall Short Mat

As well as bowling, we make extensive use of our Club House to run a number of social events throughout the year. Some of these are after special Club bowling days or tournaments, bank holiday Club events or a quiz; domino or beetle drive night.

These events are open to all members including Social Members. For a nominal fee, £15.00 per annum, social membership is available to all who want to come along to our social events. Sometimes a small charge is made to cover costs and refreshments.

We also offer a Winter Membership for those that want to use our Synthetic Green to continue outdoor bowling during the winter months October - March. The annual fee for Winter Membership is £20 per annum.

If you want to play lawn green bowls at Our Club or to join as a Winter or Social member, please go to our Contact Us page to request details, we are sure that you will find our facilities much more than adequate as well as welcoming and comfortable.
