Ashby Bowls Club for 125 years, since 1889, has been bringing that enduring simple enjoyment to local Leicestershire and South Derbyshire people. The club, colloquially known as "Ashby Bowls Club", is a haven of happiness. We are also proud of being Club Mark Accredited and have an excellent reputation for achieving this status in Ashby de la Zouch.

Of course, there is far more to bowling than just one person launching a few bowls, and the club provides the opportunity to develop your skills in a friendly social setting amongst like-minded people. You can compete against friends, with other club members and against other clubs, as the fixture lists will show.

Today, with the need for recreation high on everyone's to-do-list, Ashby Bowls Club welcomes young and old of either gender. Bowling is a leisure sport at which both elderly retired folk and young upstarts can excel, and receive recognition. This is a non-contact sport for all ages - grandchildren to grandparents.

Bowls and bowling give you healthy, gentle, open-air exercise, and lets you develop new skills in a peaceful setting, together with the chance to make new friends. You won't upset them if you find you are a very good beginner - skill is always recognised and applauded, and that's even one of our rules.
