Islip Bowling Club was established in 1921 and is located in the “chocolate box” village of Islip near Kettering and has something to offer players of all ages and abilities.
Islip Bowls Club provides lawn green bowls facilities to members of the community of Islip and surrounding towns and villages. We play matches about 2 times per week, normally on a Thursday evening and either Saturday or Sunday afternoons and the green is open on Tuesday evenings between 6pm – 8pm and Monday afternoons between 2pm - 4pm for anyone to come and have a go and for practice.
Club and County competitions are available to those who wish to take part.
We have away days to other clubs such as Cromer, Great Yarmouth and Cogenhoe and teams to go to Gala Days at other local clubs.
Most members rely on the bowls club for their summer activities, keeping active and healthy, and maintaining their social contacts. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly and welcoming club, open to all.
We have a social side to the club with our inter-club Tansley Cup and Bill Hawkins Trophy.
We have a Quiz with Fish & Chip supper to start the season, a Presentation night with Quiz and Fish & Chips and a Race Night each year.
We also raise funds with two jumble sales each year - all monies go towards keeping the green; green!
