Carpet Bowls Group
Slaley Carpet Bowls Club meets in the Commemoration Hall every Tuesday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
Carpet Bowls is really good fun! The hall on a Tuesday night is full of great humour, good and bad bowls and excellent chat. Newcomers are made to feel really welcome and soon pick up on the 'right bias' and the good fun. There is always a break for a good cup of tea and natter.
There are usually about 12-16 people there with ages ranging from teenager to wontadmitit or indeterminate! The club plays friendly yet competitive matches against local villages, and no matter what the bowls is like the supper is premier league class, whether it's at home or away. Give it a try – you are sure to enjoy it.

The previous season: 2018-1019
The season for 2018 started on September 18th and ended on March 26th 2019. It has been a really good year, club nights have been well attended, new players have come and tried the game and some have stayed with it and are now regular bowlers.We had open events for the Slaley school parents and children and for the WI, with both organisations having a great time and wanting to repeat it next year.We arrange 18 fixtures against other villages in the area this resulted in 11 wins, 4 defeats, 3 matches cancelled.Some of the games were village carpet bowls at their very best with 7 games decided by a win of 5 or less points, amazingly close after over 1000 bowls bowled on the night!!
Looking forward to September we will be hosting ‘village tea with a difference’ in aid of the village hall and then we’ll be back bowling in September.
