On behalf of the members of Barton-le-Clay Bowls Club, we welcome you to our web site.

We are located in the beautiful Bedfordshire village of Barton-le-Clay. We have a modern club house, which is continually being enhanced by own members. The green is kept by a set of dedicated volunteers from within the club. Our Club is situated on part of the Barton Rovers football club complex, whose bar we use for some of our social events.

  • An outdoor lawn bowling green, which is open from April to September.
  • Competitive or social bowling for all ages and abilities
  • Regular matches with local and touring clubs
  • Competitive bowling at club, county and national levels
