Winter Activities 2016-2017


Owing to the vagaries of the British climate the Outdoor Bowling season is normally 20-22 weeks long.  In order to keep our membership stimulated and occupied during the dark and dreary months we run a programme of winter activities.  These activities are open to all full and social members of the club and normally run from close of play in the Autumn until opening time in the Spring.

 

Carpet Bowls – Sundays  at 10.00am & Thursdays at 7pm

The game of Carpet Bowls is a gentle variation of the standard outdoor bowls game.  It is played indoors on a carpet 30-33 feet long and 6-6.5 feet wide.  A smaller biased version of outdoor bowls are used in this game, being approximately 2.5 inches in diameter.  A circular wooden obstruction is situated in the centre of the rink forcing bowlers to use the bias in their bowls to draw round the obstruction.

 

Clacton Carpet Bowls Section has two carpets with bowls for use by the members.  We also enter a team in the Clacton and District Carpet Bowls League and have been very successful in recent years.

 

The Carpet Bowls Section meets every Sunday morning for roll-ups and practice.  League games are played on a Thursday evening on a Home and Away basis. 

 

Darts - Tuesday evening at 7pm 

We have two boards for light hearted team games where everyone joins in.

 

Canasta - Thursday afternoons at 1.00pm

The Canasta Club meets on Thursday afternoons between 1pm and 4pm  

 

Cribbage - Wednesday afternoons At 1.00pm 

The Crib or Cribbage Club has been running for many years and is very popular.  As many as forty members have attended individual Crib sessions in recent years.


Bingo – Alternate Friday evenings at 7pm

Come an join us for some friendly games of Bingo


Social Evenings - Last Saturday of the Month 

Socials are usually between 7pm to 10pm, during the winter months.  They include a wide range of activities including Dancing, Horse Racing, Quizzes etc.  It goes without saying that the bar is open and ready for business. Events will be found on the Club notice-board. 


Day Trips and Outings

These are regularly organised both during the Winter and the Summer seasons.   Again, an eye should be kept on the notice boards in order to avoid disappointment
