Welcome to the website of the Standon and Puckeridge Bowls Club.



At the end of 2020 we had a lot of professional work carried out on the green and we have also invested in a new external access gate.

The green was surveyed by the professional company that dressed it in the autumn and they have declared it in good condition and they will be carrying out machine tining and rolling to make it even better before we open in April.

We will be having a season in 2021!  Government advice and advice from Bowls England clearly says that Bowls will be possible very soon.

The Key Dates

  1. Green ready to play End of April
  2. Outdoor Bowls allowed using the ‘Rule of 6’ until May 17
    1. This means that there will be no changing facilities and the Clubhouse will only be used for toilet purposes
    1. ONLY 6 People allowed on the Green at any one time
  3. From May 17 the green can be used fully but there are no indoor facilities (except for toilet purposes). This means as long as players arrive ready to play and do not expect any food and drink that they don’t bring with them, Friendly and League matches can be played.
  4. From the 21st June onwards – Life will return to normal and the clubhouse will be available for use.
