Welcome to Ventnor Bowling Club
The oldest Bowling Club on the Island, Ventnor Bowling Club is situated just above the town of Ventnor, approximately 330 feet above sea level, and about half a mile from the sea front.
We have been here at our present location since 1927. Despite being a well -established club, we are always looking to expand our family and welcome new people to our friendly club and the sport of bowls. We are lucky to have a most beautiful setting, traditional pavilion clubhouse, and one of the very finest greens on the Isle of Wight. It is also the only club on the Island with its own full length indoor rink.
Our members are of all ages and come from all walks of life reflecting the fact that bowls really is a sport for everyone. We are open from April till September for outdoor bowling and then open all winter in our full length indoor rink, all included in one membership.
If you are interested please explore further and feel free to ring or email us. For new bowlers we have a session every Wednesday morning in the summer and Monday night in the winter but if you can't make it please contact us and we will happily try and arrange to get you on the green at a better suited time.
Hopefully we will see you soon.
MIRACLES DO HAPPEN
In a tantalising, tight, traumatising, topsy turvy, tense Triples, on a ticklish green, the three Ventnor troubadours Triumphed.
In a thrilling County Final for the triples title, John Walker, Mark Morris and Ian Crombie fought long and hard against a talented, confident Shanklin Team and came out the winners. A most fantastic result for the boys and a great Kudo for the Ventnor Bowling Club, who haven’t had County success for about 8 years.. Cheered on by an enthusiastic band of Club supporters who made the trip ( well done all of you), it was truly a memorable day.
The whole game was tit for tat with some great shots and rescues by all, but a mention of two truly memorable shots were:-
The last end at 20 – 20 the shot was made by Mark Morris who fired at the two holding oppositions (winning) bowls and knocked the jack out of play and making it a dead end. Then, playing the very last end – Ian Crombie sent one of his Orange Bombs up the green accompanied by a guttural “go on then” took the jack, (guarded by 2 oppositions bowls), into the ditch with his own Bowl, where it stayed near the jack and proved to be the winning shot.
The crowd erupted with congratulations all round. This win sends the trio up to Leamington Spa to represent the Isle of Wight -Well done again!
