Crown Green Bowling is played each Wednesday afternoon between April and September. Matches are played against nearby Probus Clubs both at home and away. Our home ground is Chelford Farmers' Bowling Club behind Siddington Village Hall. Contact John Collens

 

John Collens is going into a well-deserved retirement as Bowling Secretary — Doug Miller will take over.

 

In addition to our regular matches we have three club competitions each year. Two are in memory of past presidents and the President's Day Trophy is played for on President's Day in August.

John Frain (right above), president of the club in 2004, was a very keen bowler and after he died in 2005, his widow, Margaret very kindly donated a cup in John's memory to be played for annually among bowling members of the Club. This year's winner is Doug Miller (near right below).

The splendid President's Day trophy was won by Ray Coyne (far right below).

Phil Hunt (bottom), another Past President of the Club and also a keen bowler died in 2008. His daughter Alison presented the club with a Rose Bowl in her father's memory to be played for annually.
The Bowling Section of the Club decided that this event should be a Pairs Competition which could also include partners and widows.

There is a strong tradition of bowling in the club and if you have an interest in bowling, you are most welcome to join us, even if you are new to the game. As the section is self financing a modest additional subscription is payable.  Sometimes we struggle to find a full team — anyone who plays would be most welcome to join us.

Out of season for Crown Green Bowling there is normally an indoor league at Bollington on Monday afternoons in which we play.

 

Fixtures for 2021 are below.
Please note the rearranged away match with Leek — now 22/9/21.
