The Connaught Club

Overview

Located within the heart of Epping Forest the Bowls Club has one of the finest greens in Essex with seven rinks available every day of the week during the outdoor season. The club celebrated its centenary year in 2009 though there is evidence from an advert that a bowls green existed on another part of the present site from 27 June 1888!

There are purpose built Men’s and Ladies’ pavilions with a refreshment area and covered stand for spectators and players. The club currently has 75 members and new members are always welcome. We have a great membership offer for new members.

We have recently introduced Short Mat Bowls in the main pavilion. We play Monday afternoons and Friday mornings. It has proved very successful and is enjoyed by those taking part. It is quite relaxed and though quite different to outdoor bowls still requires skill, a light touch and a good sense of humour!
