Willian Bowls Club

Willian Foxes

We are a small friendly Bowls club and welcome new and experienced bowlers alike. We are located on the Lower Green in Norton Common, Letchworth Garden City, where we share the green with North Herts Bowls Club. We offer FREE instruction and first year’s membership to all new bowlers.

We have a full fixture list of mid-week and weekend friendly and league bowls matches against local clubs. We participate in the Stevenage and District Mixed League and the North Herts Division of County Men's League. The Club runs a full range of internal competitions with Club roll-up sessions being held on Tuesday afternoons starting at 2.00pm and on Thursday evenings at 6.00pm. We also organise a number of informal social events throughout the year.

Anyone interested in joining the Club can either turn up at one of the Club roll-up sessions or contact any of the Club Officials.
