About Us

Group at the opening in 1923


Bude Haven Recreation Ground laid a bowling green late in1923. When bowling started is not clear but it seems that the bowlers organised themselves playing as Bude Social Bowling Club. On 3rd December 1930 a public meeting was called and Bude Bowling Club was formed. In 1931 the subscription was half a crown (now 25p). In the first season the Club won the Croydon Marks Cup and were Divisional Champions in the Nicholl Cup Competition.
