Bradley Stoke Town Council maintains a bowling green at its Baileys Court Activity Centre, Baileys Court Road BS32 8BH.
The green is available for casual use by members of the public, Charges are on a ‘per person, per match’ basis and bookings are by arrangement only. Phone BSTC on 01454 864646 for charges and availability.
Moves are currently afoot to form a new bowling club in Bradley Stoke, to play at the Baileys Court green, which has been seldom used since the Northavon Bowling Club (NABC) was evicted in 2008 following a rent dispute.
Cllr Ben Walker is working with former NABC Club President Jim Durlacher with a view to founding a new club in time for the 2010 season.
An inaugural meeting of the Bradley Stoke Bowls Club was held on Wednesday 13th January 2010, after which Cllr Walker told The Journal:
After a really successful first meeting of the new Bradley Stoke Bowls Club tonight, I must thank all that turned out in the cold weather to show their support for the new club to start bowling on the green in April, (approx 40). I must also thank the new steering committee who have worked tirelessly to help start the new club and I look forward to working with them during the club’s development. This is a new start for a new club and the support of fellow councillors and The Journal is much appreciated and goes along way in the community.
Anyone interested in joining the new club can contact Jim Durlacher on 0117 969 3623.
