Situated within the Dartmoor National Park and just a short distance from Buckland Monochorum, Burrator, Crapstone, Dousland, Horrabridge, Meavy, Milton Combe, Tavistock and Walkhampton to name just a few, Yelverton Bowling Club can be found on Meavy Lane next to the Yelverton War Memorial Village Hall.
Set up in 1927, we are a family friendly club with around 70 members and we welcome new applications to join from both young and 'not so young'.
We are affiliated to Bowls England and Bowls Devon and are part of the Plymouth and District League, regularly playing matches within the league. We have a Men's Section, Ladies Section and play mixed matches as well. Our club night from April through to the middle of September is Thursday and matches start at around 6pm with all members playing being entered into the Club night competition with the chance to win a trophy at the end of the playing season based on the number of points won; a minimum number of matches played applies.
We offer coaching at all levels from beginners to experienced bowlers and have 4 qualified coaches who are able to deliver this. Scheduled coaching is offered at the start of the season.
In addition to league and competition matches we also play friendly matches with other local clubs, so there are plenty of opportunities to play both competitively as well as social bowls just for fun. Whatever you are looking for in a club we like to pride ourselves on being able to offer something for everyone.
It's not all bowls either - enjoyable though that is - we have an active and well supported social side, holding dinners, BBQ's, fun days and general get togethers.
We are self run (with just a small committee) and self funded but remain very competitively priced, with a subscription fee of just £110.00 per annum (2017) for full membership. other membership types on offer include Associate player, social and junior.
Additionally we also offer 'Try before you Buy'. To find out more please go to our contacts page where you will find details of who to contact or, if you are in the area please feel free to come along to one of our club nights on Thursday evenings from 5:45pm and we will be happy to show you around and you can try your hand at this very enjoyable and gentle sport.
