Welcome to the Bylet Bowling Club, Bridgnorth, Shropshire

Our Club was founded in 1884 and occupies an island in the River Severn in Bridgnorth, UK.

We play 'Crown Green' bowls and have two greens. The club has twelve different teams which play in a number of local leagues:

  • Shropshire Premier League (Team of 12 on Friday evenings)

  • Mid-Shropshire League (two teams of 12 on Friday and one of 10 on Monday evenings)

  • Highley League (four teams of 10 on Tuesday evenings)

  • Mid-Shropshire Senior Citizens League (three teams of 6 on Wednesday afternoons)

  • Telford Ladies League (team of 6 on Monday afternoons).

During the close season (in normal times), we play indoor short-mat bowls in the clubhouse as well as darts, dominoes, crib, whist and bingo. We also hold a number of social functions details of which can be found on the events page.

This web site was started to keep the club together following the devastating fire that destroyed our original clubhouse in August 2007. Our new clubhouse was opened in July 2009 and you can view some pictures of the restoration work on the gallery page.
