There are approximately 50 members. We have a Ladies and Men's Section who play both in individual leagues and competitions. Mixed friendly fixtures are played on Saturday afternoons. We have a 6 rink bowls green with ladies and men's changing rooms. Throughout the season there is a “roll up” on a Wednesday evening and Sunday mornings.
Kings Heath Bowls Section is open to players of all ages. If you are not sure about playing but would like to have a try get in touch with us contact details are shown at the end of this sheet. Initially all you will need is some flat shoes, we will provide the bowls. A very warm welcome will be awaiting you.
Subscription to the Bowls Section for 2015 is £155, this also includes social membership to the Club and the use of its facilities. There are day time subscriptions and a reduction for senior citizens.
Each season there are internal competitions, Ladies singles and pairs; Mens singles and pairs; Open 2 Wood Singles and Mixed Pairs. The Finals Day is held in September every year with the Presentation Lunch in November.
The Bowls section at Kings Heath is a long established club and has played at high levels in the bowling world.
The Men’s Section play in the BBA League and have an “A” and “B” team. We also have a league for Over 55’s which we play on Monday afternoon starting at 1.30pm with tea and biscuits at the half way stage. This tends to be a very friendly but competitive game. The quality of the bowls green at Kings Heath Bowls Club has resulted in our hosting various County Quarter and Semi-final rounds as well as Birmingham District Semi-Finals.
The Ladies Section play against other local clubs in the BDWBA (Birmingham District Women’s Bowls Association) Triples League, matches being held on a Tuesday evening both home and away. The Kings Heath Bowls Section Ladies Secretary was President of the BDWBA for 2010/11.
Ladies can also enter in the BDWBA Competitions which are at District level and the Warwickshire Women’s Bowling Association (WWBA) competitions at County level. Monday afternoons the Ivy League is played on a home and away basis with tea and biscuits being provided prior to the start of the game. We also have fixtures on Thursday afternoons which are relaxing friendly games with tea and biscuits at the end of the match.
