Latest News


THE DRAWS FOR Bowls Northamptonshire's competitions have now been published, and can be found here. Links on the 'County/National Competitions' pages of this website have been amended.


Entry for Bowls England's competitions remains open. The deadline for these is Friday 1st March. Don't delay if you haven't already registered.


24/01/2024: THANK YOU to all members who attended the Annual General Meeting on Monday 22nd January. Although an uneventful occasion it itself, it was a significant moment in the club's history. As the first AGM to be held since the adoption of the new club constitution, this year's committee is the first elected on gender-neutral lines.


In practice, the people on committee have barely altered - for now at least. Notice has been given by Chris Beck, the inaugural 'Administrator', that he wishes to take things easier after this season and step aside. Long-term plans will be a big consideration for the committee this year, and they please request other members to provide all the assistance they can, particularly with regards to volunteering for roles and events.

As ever, all contact details for club officers are listed here.


08/01/2024: THE NEW YEAR is barely a week done and Abington is already winning silverware. On 6th January, the Saturday friendly squad retained the Jack English Trophy, the prize for our annual fixture at Northampton Indoor.


An extremely high-scoring game saw both sides reach a triple-figure aggregate, 203 shots in total equating roughly to an average of 20 for every rink! But even more incredibly, after the better part of four hours bowling, just 1 seperated us from them, Abington squeaking it 102-101. Let's hope for more of the same when the outdoor game resumes in the spring.

***Members should all have received details of our Annual General Meeting, which is being held on the evening of Monday 22nd January. If not, please notify our Secretary, Barbara Astle, and she will provide a copy of the agenda, plus the minutes for the last AGM and last year's EGM.
