Islip Bowls Club provides lawn green bowls facilities to members of the community of Islip and surrounding towns and villages. We play matches 3 times per week and the green is open on Tuesday evenings for anyone to come and have a go. Open days are held to attract more members to the club. Most members rely on the bowls club for their summer activities, keeping active and healthy, and maintaining their social contacts. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly and welcoming club, open to all.
It is important for local people to keep active and engaged in a social atmosphere which fosters mutual support. It's a great place to come and be involved in the community and is particularly beneficial to those living on their own. The club was founded in 1921 on land given to the village to commemorate the sacrifices made in WWI.
Our facilities have been significantly improved in recent years by our own efforts and this is an ongoing commitment. We have been able to welcome a number of new members to the club who came with no experience and are now valuable players. At the moment we are raising money to replace our changing rooms and toilet facilities.
We are not currently looking for volunteers but we always welcome new members to our club.
