About the club

Our friendly club, with recently re-furbished club house, bar and outdoor patio area, is set in attractive and tranquil surroundings, accessed through the acclaimed Kings Arms Path Gardens, off Brinsmade Road, Ampthill, Bedfordshire, MK45 2PP.

We have Mens and Ladies teams and welcome ladies and gents of all levels, from beginners who just want a friendly game to those who are a little more competitive and want to play in fixtures and competitions.  

We currently have approx 30 members in our Men's Section and 20 in our Ladies and hope that more people will join us during this special year.  

Roll Up... Roll up… Interested in playing bowls?

We are looking for more members to help us celebrate our Centenary in 2019. People of all ages and abilities are welcome - from beginners (coaching available) to experienced players who are interested in playing in County and National competitions. Members enjoy regular games against other Clubs from Bedfordshire and beyond - all year round, as many members also bowl at indoor clubs over the winter months at Kempston Park Bowls Club and Bedford Borough Bowling Club.  

Ampthill has 3 teams playing in various East Beds Leagues on Monday evenings, in the Beds County League on Wednesday, as well as local inter-club competitions and friendly matches (mostly) on Saturday afternoons with many other local Clubs (from Beds and Bucks).

We also have a number of non-playing 'social' members who attend our matches and functions.  Our popular Annual Prize Giving Dinner is held in October.

Our ‘Signing-on’ Day is usually the first Saturday in April, this year it is Saturday 6th April, but you are welcome to drop in any time.

If you would like further information on how to join the club as a player or as a social member please do contact us by completing the Contact Form on the Contact Us page or email enquiries@ampthillbowlsclub.com.

We encourage members to look smart when playing but understand the constraints that the more traditional shirt and tie can have so we have recently combined our more traditional ‘uniform’ with wearing a modern polo-shirt sporting the Club’s colours for matches.
