Bloxham Bowls Club is well known as a friendly and successful club. Set in the north of Oxfordshire it has been a thriving bowls club since 1957.
The game of bowls can be enjoyed by everybody, no matter what age, sex or disability. We are always looking for new members. How many times have people thought about 'just having a go'; please don't worry, come along and sample the game and it's hospitality. Experience is not necessary as we have coaches available who can help if required. A player in their first years can sometimes be as good as someone who has been playing for a number of years.
Newcomers can practice and learn the game themselves at their own pace or take advantage of the clubs own coaches to aid their advancement in the game. When they feel ready they can make themselves available for team selection if they wish to try the competitive element of bowls. We play in men's and mixed league matches and also play many mixed friendly matches in the local area.
The club is currently (2016) in Oxfordshire County League 4 having been relegated last season. Our ladies joined forces with a Banbury team and were winners of the Bowls Oxfordshire Ladies County Top Club Competition. We also hold club competitions for our members, with trophies for singles, pairs and triples.
Why not come along and have a go, without obligation, and see if you like it. All you need to start is a pair of flat soled shoes or trainers and we will provide the rest. Club practice sessions are held every Monday evening from 6:30 pm during the season (weather permitting). Alternatively if you would like to discuss 'sampling' the game of bowls then contact the secretary, 01295 720531, and he will happily make arrangements for people to meet you at a convenient time and date.

With the development of the website it is an appropriate moment to remember and express our gratitude to Robert (Bob) Gushlow who joined Bloxham Bowls Club in 1987 and was president in 2004 and 2005.
Bob left us with this wonderful legacy which he developed in the millennium year and maintained until his death in September 2007. Since 2007 this website has been looked after and financed by Nick Gushlow, Bob’s son. This site will remain dedicated to Bob and will show our appreciation to both Bob and Nick.
