If we have interested you click on the “Contacts Tab” and send us a message, we will tell you more about the club and opportunities for new members. Club History The club was formed in 1992, its members deriving from two earlier indoor bowls groups, ‘The Over 50’s’ and the ‘Friday Evening’ Clubs. The absence of any Flat Green surface within the Borough necessitated the use of Crown Green for a couple of years at the Dell, Brockmoor and the King George V Park, Wordsley, and latterly at Haden Hill, Halesowen. In the winter of 1993/1994 the Dudley Metropolitan Council converted two former tennis courts at Stevens Park, Wollescote to flat green bowling. The intervening years have reduced the effects of the grounds former use and produced the present improved surface which compares favourably to many others. The club lacked any of the usual amenities until 2003 when it aquired a new timber built club house/pavilion. Since then additional structures have been added including changing room facilities.
