Where to find us

How to find us: The bowling green is situated close to Attenborough Nature Reserve.

Go past the Village Green with the cricket and football grounds and you will find the bowls club at the end of The Strand.    


Attenborough Bowls Club

It has been said that our venue on the edge of the Attenborough Nature Reserve is one of the most picturesque in the County. First founded in 1908 Attenborough Village Bowls Club was reformed in 1981 and in 1991 moved to the present site on the outskirts of Nottingham, about halfway between Beeston and Long Eaton.

During 2012 the local River Trent Flood Alleviation Scheme was installed, which means that a new bowling green has been laid. This was opened by the Mayor of Broxtowe, Coun. Margaret Handley on Saturday, April 20th 2013. Members also did work on the pavilion so providing a bigger space for teas and social occasions.

In the summer we play a combination of Bowls Nottinghamshire League, friendlies and social bowls with internal competitions and tournaments.
In the winter we play indoors at the local Erewash Indoor Bowls Club - www.eibc.co.uk - where we have two teams representing the club, and several of our members make up teams that compete on different days during the week.
