Cheques payable to Black Swan Bowling Club.

Every bowler has to be registered with British Crown Green Bowling Association (BCGBA)* for a one off cost of £10 for a lifetime membership. The club will pay this as part of your first year membership fees.
Juniors have to register with BCGBA* so therefore their first year membership is £10 and then free up to the age of 18.**

*BCGBA registration is only required if players wish to play in League Competitions, I.E. cups, league games and league competitions. Any player wishing to play socially and enter internal competitions does not require a registration.
**A security fence is in place and keys are available for a small fee for all members to gain access.

The green is usually open from March – October each year.
