Welcome to Arclight Bowls Club


We are a friendly mixed lawn bowls club situated at the West End Sports Ground in Eudo Road, Colchester. The club caters for all levels of skill and experience and with members ranging from beginners to international bowlers. The Club has good facilities including easy car parking and a well stocked licensed bar.


For the experienced bowler we offer an extensive fixture list fielding a variety of Ladies, Men’s and Mixed teams into 5 local leagues as well as County and National Competitions. For the more social bowler various friendly matches are available throughout the season in addition to weekly club nights and competitions.


During the playing season, from the beginning of May to the end of September, our green is open to members to play from 10.30am to dusk and the bar is open most evenings of the week.


New members are always very welcome and tuition and equipment can be provided for beginners. In order to spread the costs of starting a new sport we offer reduced rate membership packages for the first and second years of membership. Weekend only membership packages are also available, which may be more suitable for those unable to bowl during the week.


If you would like to try bowls then we would like to meet you – YOU WILL BE VERY WELCOME.
