Welcome to the web site of St Albans Townsend Bowls Club
8 Waverley Road, St Albans, AL3 5PA - 01727 852361
Located in the historic city of St Albans, Hertfordshire we are an active and welcoming outdoor bowling club with a full calendar of friendly and competitive events during the summer along with social events throughout the year.
Should you wish to get involved, and to book a taster session with one of our county coaches, then simply give us a ring or make on line contact. We will provide all you need to enjoy this amazing sport, and now is the ideal time to think about some outdoor exercise!
Townsend Bowls Club competes at many different levels, and we have numerous teams involving almost all our members in matches against other clubs.
Friendlies are held both midweek and at weekends against other local teams. These are normally mixed and played in the spirit for which bowls is known - very often starting and finishing with a drink in the bar along with one's opponents! New starters are always welcome at the club, where we offer beginner training by our two highly qualified and experienced coaches.
Our last full season was particularly special as we celebrated our centenary with matches against other clubs who shared this milestone, as well as games against the Royal Household at Windsor and touring teams including London Welsh, London Scottish and a District select team made up of members of other clubs in the St Albans area. Many of these teams, including the Royal Household, are booked in for a return fixture in the next few weeks.
As well as having what is generally considered to be one of the best greens in the County, Townsend has a very modern club house with a newly refurbished kichen, a well stocked bar, a main lounge with large picture windows overlooking the green and two viewing galleries offering a birdseye view of the competition below.
