Thank you for your interest in Burton & Puddington Bowls Club. New members, including beginners, are always welcome.

Why not come along to one of our social bowls? We’ll provide equipment and introduce you to the game. It’s a great way to meet us and try your hand at bowls, with no obligation. And you can attend three of our events free of charge before we ask that you join the Club.

“Our experience at Burton has been wonderful. We have been made so welcome by everyone with helpful guidance in a very nice way. Could not speak more highly of the club and its members. 5 stars!!” JW

“A really friendly group where you are made to feel most welcome and encouraged to take part in all the activities. A beautiful manicured green in a most delightful and peaceful setting. Highly recommended.” BC & LC


There are two levels of membership.


The annual subscription is £25.

Social (Non-Playing)

For individuals who do not wish to bowl but do wish to attend Club events throughout the year the annual subscription is £5. 

No fee is required for casual spectators or non-playing partner/spouse/friend/family who turn up very occasionally for a one-off roll-up or for social events. In this context “very occasionally” means on not more than three occasions in any year.

There is also an annual fee payable to the Burton & Puddington Sports & Social Club, currently £30. This pays for the upkeep of the Sports & Social Club buildings and environs and of Gladstone Village Hall.

If you are already a member of another sports section or are a Social member, you are not required to pay a second Social Club fee.

We encourage members to pay by bank transfer. Please note: If you wish to pay by cash or cheque, there is a £1 fee to cover bank charges.

To join the Bowls Club, complete a membership application form and return it to us. If you are not already a member of the Social Club, you will see that you need a Proposer and Seconder. Feel free to ask members you have met at events. If you do not have a Proposer or Seconder when you fill in the form, don’t worry, leave the fields blank and we will take care of it for you.
