Winter League recruiting new teams

Winter League

The Winter League is now open for applications for new teams for the 2023-24 season starting this October. The League has increased in numbers each year and we now believe that it is the fastest growing league in the country.

The working assumption is that there will be a further eight teams joining the League for the new season and already three teams have come forward to apply to join. They are Outlane, Broad Oak and Thorpe Green D which will take the total number of teams to 43.

Should the total applications pass the 5 new teams marker then a new host green will be required to support the introduction of a new Division 6. If you would like to learn more about what is involved in being a host green then get in touch.

The closing date for new team applications for the new season is Monday 3 July 2023. You can learn more about what winter bowling is all about by reading our Ultimate Guide to Winter Bowling.

In brief:

  • teams are made up of 4 bowlers who can be of any gender

  • matches are played of 2 Singles and 1 Pairs games

  • bowlers must have passed their 60th birthday to qualify to bowl

  • you don't use your own green in the League as each division is allocated a host green that they play on all season

  • teams play on the same day of the week throughout the season

  • matches are played from October to mid-February

  • there is a two-week break over the Christmas period

  • League fees are £15 per team per season

  • weekly match fees are £10 a team (£2.50 per bowler) which all goes to the host green which covers green fees, raffle ticket, hot drinks and biscuits.

  • hot drinks and hot and cold food are always available for spectators at a modest charge.

Further details are available from the League Secretary, Jeff Jacklin, by phone (07968 171 197) or by email to
