Message from the Captain

ALBURY had a very successful year during 2014 losing only seven matches when playing the weekend friendlies against local clubs.  The West Surrey Midweek league saw ALBURY "A" team winning the final, also the ALBURY "B" team made the semi-final losing narrowly to Chessington who went on to play ALBURY "A" team in the final. Yet again a team from ALBURY played at Bookham winning again for the fourth year running.
Rob Edwards a seasoned bowler from ALBURY was awarded his Surrey badge during 2014. Janet McEntee another star player from ALBURY is well on her way to her Surrey badge achieving Finals in the singles competition .
The ladies teams had a good season with Janet McEntee partnered with Sue Chitty winning the FRANK HENRY CUP.
A ladies team of Linda Munns, Rosemary Matthews, Sue Chitty and Janet McEntee from ALBURY won the Chertsey ladies open against Woking park.

Welcome to Albury Bowling Club.

Set in the rolling Surrey Hills the small picturesque village of Albury, close to the County Town of Guildford, is home to Albury Bowling Club.  Situated close to the village church a warm Summer's evening echoes to the sound of bells and the crack of woods on the green.

Founded in 1924 the club is very proud of its tradition.  Before that the green had been used as the Village Green.  Originally the Club house was a converted chicken hut but in 2003, through the hard work of the Committee and grants from the Lottery and Sport England, a new club house was built to accommodate the bar, changing rooms and provision for indoor bowls.  The current green was refurbished in 2012 and is now used by the club and for County matches.

Our green consists of 4 rinks and during the outdoor season we are active in a number of Leagues.  Most weeks there are friendly matches, both home and away, on Saturday and  Sunday with occasional mid-week matches.  We are proud of the large number of our members who have achieved Surrey County badge status.

During the indoor season the clubhouse accommodates 2 short mat rinks.  This allows us to contest in a number of leagues and house friendly matches during the long winter evenings.  Regular roll-up evenings are held on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The clubhouse contains a well stocked bar with both Lager and Bitter on tap.  We hold regular social evenings - Jazz, Country and Western, pop, quiz nights.  This enables all the members to get together and have a good night.  If you don't want to bowl you can join as a social member and benefit from the bar and social evenings.

Hope to see you soon!
