Introduction :-

Welcome to the website of California Bowls Club.

We are a section of California Social Club Ltd. (CIU Affiliated).

We hope that you find these web pages both informative and useful to both existing members, guests and to anyone who may be interested in joining us.

California Bowls Club is a long established club who take part in all codes of bowls played in Suffolk (BE both Men's & Women's, EBF & EWBF), total membership is about 50 which has remained relatively constant over a number of years. We have a reputation for being a club of above average playing strength and of a competitive nature, but will always try to accommodate bowlers of all standards from beginner to county players. Over the years we have provided many representatives for Suffolk's numerous county teams and have enjoyed a great deal of success in both individual and team events. The club is proud to have provided Two County Presidents together with EBF National Triples, BE Eastern Counties Triples and numerous Suffolk County Champions.

The Green is maintained by members and is generally of a good standard and there are a maximum of Five rinks available with the club regularly hosting events on behalf of Suffolk County. The Green is floodlit and these are used for some events.

The Club is sponsored by a local company Camel Sand & Gravel and the club shirt features the Californian Poppy which is Yellow together with the sponsors endorsement.
