A warm welcome to St Joseph's Bowls Club, Cardiff which was founded in 1976 as a sports section within St Joseph's Catholic Sports and Social Club, Cardiff.
We are affiliated to the Wales Bowling Association (WBA), East Wales Private Greens Bowling Association (EWPGBA), and South Glamorgan County Bowling Association (SGCBA).
We have two competitive teams who usually play on a Saturday afternoon:
First Team play in PG1 Division 3
'A' Team play in PG2 Division 2
A competitive team comprising of players from both teams also play midweek (Wednesday evening) in the Cardiff Municipal League (CML).
On a less competitive note, we have a team which is open to all members of the bowls club, who play local friendly Alliance matches on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
All new players, experienced or novice, are welcome.
It is with great sadness that the club announces the death today (Sunday 24 May) of former club stalwart Colin Regan. We offer our condolences to his family. RIP Colin.
Cardiff Council has advised there will be no routine maintenance undertaken on the green as this activity does not form part of an essential service. They will review the position continuously and should restrictions currently imposed be lifted over time they will look to bring the greens back into use, as soon as is practically possible. Therefore the green will remain closed until further notice.
Further information will follow in due course.
We hope you and your families are safe and well.
The EWPGBA Management Committee has decided that fixtures are SUSPENDED until the end of JUNE due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis. The intention is to run with a curtailed programme of fixtures from July subject to ongoing advice from the Government and Health Authorities if appropriate. This we hope will allow clubs to raise some revenue during a curtailed season.
In the meantime, fixture arrangements are being reviewed with the intention that clubs may have the opportunity to play each other once in the season.
We will keep you advised of these arrangements as and when.
