Moseley Cricket Club boasts a thriving crown green bowls section.
Plans to lay down the green at the far side of the ground were drawn up in 1967. Instrumental in its initial development were club members Bert Hodgetts, Harry Perry, Geoff Timms and George Collins, and in 1983 Roy Guggiari was involved in improvements to the drainage system.
Sadly no longer with us, their legacy remains as testament to their dedication to the Bowls Section of Moseley Cricket Club.
In 1996, funding approval was granted by the main committee to enable liaison officer John Taylor to oversee the installation of a much needed watering system, installed by a working party of Bowls members. The original wooden pavilion, known as ‘The Last End’, was replaced by the purpose built brick building you see today and was opened by club President Gordon Brindley in August 1995.
Initially the green was used for social bowling but the club soon began competing in Parks Bowls Leagues for more competitive games – now in the Warwick and Worcester League the Saturday teams have progressed to Premier and Alliance Division One.
There are 6 other teams, playing in various leagues on weekday evenings, plus 6 over 60’s teams playing during the day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Practice night is usually on a Friday evening. So if you would like to give it a try don’t stand on ceremony – please just turn up. There is no dress code in the Crown Green Association. The only stipulation is that flat shoes must be worn when on the green.
The bowls section is happy to welcome new members regardless of experience. Please see the “Contact Page” for further contact details.
