Ipplepen Bowling Club

Ipplepen Bowling Club

A warm welcome awaits you at Ipplepen Bowling Club. We have an outdoor carpeted green which allows bowling all year round. Whether you are an experienced bowler or someone who would like to try their hand at bowling without any pressures, come along to our very friendly Club.

Ipplepen Bowling Club has four outdoor carpeted rinks. We meet on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings each week to have practice roll-up sessions. Anyone wishing to play must sign-in at the Clubhouse between 9.30 and 9.45 am so that teams can be made-up ready to start play at 10am.

Once you are a member of the Club you can purchase (for a minimal fee) your own set of keys, which then gives you access to be able to practice by yourself or arrange a session with other members at times to suit yourselves.

Throughout the summer season (April to end of September) we hold friendly matches against other local teams.

We hold our own inter-Club competitions i.e. men’s champion, ladies champion, ladies/gents pairs, and mixed pairs, together with a Captain’s Day and Charity Day. Throughout the year we play an L-v-G match and a Dorella Cup match, both which sees the ladies -v- the gents and gives for two very enjoyable “battle” matches !!! Download 2019 winners for information.

The gents play during the summer in the South Devon “Over 55’s” league and the ladies play in the Teignbridge Ladies Triples competition (and are currently the 2019 season champions). For the first time this year, we have entered a mixed team into the Dawlish Winter Indoor League.

We have two qualified coaches who are on hand to give any help and advice for new players.

As well as full membership being offered for players, we also have a winter-membership so that any bowler who belongs to a Bowling Club who has a grass green and therefore cannot play all year round – we welcome you throughout the winter season. Download membership application form.

We then have a social membership for people who would like to support our Club, and who can come along and watch any of the matches being played, can attend all our social events like cream teas, Whist Drives, etc.
