In the summer of 1928, the Cadbury family (famed for providing accommodation and leisure for their workers, as well as the quality of their chocolate) founded Weoley Hill Bowling Club. Set in the leafy suburbs of South Birmingham, our picturesque green is an idyll of tranquility...except when bowling is happening! Crown Green Bowls takes but a little time to understand and execute, but a lifetime to master! If you're interested in learning more please see:- Crown Green Bowls
The season runs from April to October. Restrictions (in line with British Crown Green Bowling Association Guidelines) are currently in place due to COVID. We currently cannot welcome visitors. During this time, Men's afternoons are Monday and Friday, Ladies Tuesdays and Thursdays. Wednesday afternoons and all evenings are mixed. We organise a number of afternoons within the club, such as Presidents v Captains teams, or Captains v Vice Captains teams, which are fun. We also organise matches against other local clubs, which, although 'Friendlies', are hugely competitive. There are a number of men's, ladies and mixed club competitions that run throughout the summer, with finals weekend in late September. In the off season, social events are held approximately monthly. These include whist drive, quiz, skittles night and our Annual Dinner.
