Port Sunlight Village Works and Crown Green Bowling Club.

The Bowling Club was formed in 2009 with the amalgamation of the Port Sunlight Village Social Bowling Club, formerly The Men’s Club and The Works Bowling Club, the latter originally comprised of employees and retired employees of Unilever.

Both The Men’s and Works Bowling Clubs had a wealth of history going back to the early 1900’s. Members still compete for the Presidents Cup, first presented in 1908 by William Hesketh Lever MP, founder of Lever Brothers. The club bowling green which started life as a grass tennis court, was originally maintained by Unilever but is now cared for by The Village Trust.

The green is situated in a picturesque location right in the heart of Port Sunlight near Hulme Hall, The Dell and Lyceum Buildings. Members have the use of a pavilion opposite the green.

The club is open to both men and women including juniors and it really would like new members of any ability including those who have never played crown green bowls.

All members enjoy a relaxed, friendly and fun club atmosphere whilst feeling the benefits of a healthy outdoor exercise.

The club competes in several different leagues against other Wirral based clubs over 4 evenings a week, and one afternoon a week fields a veterans over 55’s team. Also on a Wednesday evening the members have a club night for social bowling, which is the perfect time for new people to come along and have a try.

If you are interested in having a go at Crown Green Bowls, further information is available from Nick Woodward, Bowls Club Secretary on 07761 932360 or just turn up any Wednesday evening, when the season starts in early April through to October.
