Indoor Bowls

Alex Mervart – Marketing Manager of Cambridge Chesterton Indoor Bowls Club writes:

We are a thriving, modern indoor bowls club with an excellent restaurant and bar located on Logan’s Way in Chesterton. We currently have 600+ members many of whom play week in week out. There are others who play occasionally or are simply social members coming down to enjoy our spacious bar and restaurant areas. Other than the 8 bowls rinks where the action takes place, the club houses a large, relaxing area where you can catch up with other members, read a book, work on your laptop using our fast Wi-Fi or even do one of our jigsaws.

Bowls session in action

Bowls is our bread and butter and we are proud to have high-quality playing areas, numerous qualified coaches and all the equipment you need to get you started. It is a democratic sport, accessible to people of all ages and from all walks of life, keeping you fit without putting a great deal of strain on the body.

Coaching session

The club runs weekly inclusive sessions in collaboration with the City Council on Monday afternoons. We also have an annual Open Day which is pencilled in for Sunday 20th of September 14:00-18:00 (subject to Covid-19). We welcome visitors from every corner of Cambridge and beyond and would be delighted to see more residents of the Mill Road area. If there were enough interest, we could even setup a bespoke session just for you. Please check our website or call/email in early September for the latest info on our opening times and open sessions. 

Should you then wish to join, the annual membership for the 2020/21 season will be just £12.50 (down from £65), entitling you to bowl and use all the club facilities.

Finally, if you are a business or organisation looking for a venue that is a little bit different for your next meeting or conference, we also have diverse spaces available to hire throughout the year.

Mill Road Bridges website manager adds:

Whilst this is out of the Mill Road area, Cambridge Chesterton Indoor Bowls Club has received funding from Cambridge City Council, the Sports Council, a Lottery grant, and commercial sponsorship to be a city-wide (and beyond) facility. When we eventually ease out of Covid-19 lockdown, people will be looking to find new forms of exercise and ways to socialise.

The club, on Logan’s Way, Chesterton, Cambridge CB4 1BL, is just a modest cycle-ride away, via the Riverside pedestrian/cycle bridge, or a short walk from Chesterton Road (CMBDADPG) citi2 bus stop at the corner of Chesterton Church Street.

Thoroughly recommended as a member from 2013, initially playing after completing a training course, then socially. The facilities as described are excellent, with an efficiently run restaurant (Sunday Roasts if prebooked), a bar, and comfortable seating to sit and chat, read (library of books to hand), or just enjoy watching the teams battling in the ‘arena’. Recommended.
