Welcome to Arclight Bowls Club


Arclight is a mixed Lawn Bowls Club, with its green at West End Sports Ground, Eudo Road, Colchester UK. It is a welcoming, friendly club that caters for both the competitive and the social bowler, with a membership that ranges from new bowlers to internationals. We have an extensive fixture list, fielding ten teams in five different leagues.


New members are always welcome, and tuition and equipment can be provided for beginners. In addition to normal playing and social membership, we offer a weekend playing membership at a reduced rate, granting access to the green on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, to cater for players who find it inconvenient or impossible to bowl during the working week.


We look forward to meeting you.
