LOCKDOWN NUMBER THREE - Regrettably the Club is closed completely in line with the Government regulations.

We have an exciting summer planned for 2021 and hope to be able to celebrate last years 75th anniversary

this year with some special games including Bowls England and Bowls Leicestershire visiting our splendid green. 

All these plans are however dependent upon Covid 19 and the success of the vaccination programme.

An Open Day/Weekend is planned when anyone can come along and 'have a go' without charge to try out this

fascinating sport.  

The Stamford League has agreed a simplified League to go ahead hopefully from June,  Mondays and Fridays, with two

Divisions only. All Clubs have been contacted to enter their teams. Marko will be in Division 2 with one team.

There will not be competitions  for the Duncombe Shield, Rosebowl or Boor and Wainwright for this one year only.

All the arrangements are dependent upon government advice at the time and there will be a number of differences to take account

of the covid precautions. Hopefully all will have had vaccinations by the time we are due to begin. 

Anyone interested in joining our club is invited to contact the Secretary for help and information.

Keep safe - and watch this space!


As the Covid summer of 2020 draws to a close our green has been 'put to bed' by the contractor and he will be looking after it during the winter months. The hedges are trimmed and the gardens pruned, it all looks very neat and tidy but oh so quiet. 

The Committee have ensured the correct Covid 19 regulations are enforced and members had the opportunity to sign up for 'carpet bowls' .  Sufficient interest was shown to enable two teams of 6 on two carpets to take part on Friday afternoons.  Unfortunately no spectators are allowed as this would affect the numbers. All the bowlers are masked, windows are open. We are at the mercy of government during this pandemic and should the law change so might we. However meanwhile we carry on. 

Please do not just turn up as you will be turned away if you are not booked in to play.

The plans we had to celebrate our 75th year were unable to take place but Bowls England, Bowls Leicestershire and Friends of Bowls all plan to come in 2021 to help us celebrate a little late. Subject again to the current situation.

The AGM will be held by email and snail mail to enable our members to have a say on the way forward in 2021 and to approve or otherwise the arrangements suggested by the Committee.

Our grateful thanks to all the members who have stood by the club in these difficult times and helped us to be sure that Market Overton Bowls Club stands proud in the community. We have been appreciative of comments by passers by and local residents who have been pleased to see the bowlers on the green in the summer striving to keep some normality in these far from normal times. 

Keep safe - keep well - keep your distance
