Where we are

New Members

At Acle Indoor Bowls Club, we always welcome new members. Beginners can take advantage of free hire of equipment and coaching by our fully qualified coaches. This service is also free of charge.  We also have a special wheelchair for use on the rinks, for the disabled.

Of course, experienced bowlers of any level are also made more than welcome at Acle.

Acle IBC  has 2 hour sessions on every day of the week during the main season ( September - April ). During these sessions, various events take place:

       •    Internal leagues (Pairs, Triples & Fours, all in Mens, Ladies and Mixed formats).

    •    A friendly ‘Drive’ session where you may be drawn to play against (and with) anyone. All very light hearted and a half time cup of something refreshing goes down very nicely.  You may even be in the money at the end of it all.

    •    For those more competitive, there are inter-club matches in the County Leagues as well as Club & County or even national competitions.

    •    We also welcome visiting executive and county teams in friendly games
