GOOD NEWS - The BCGBA have confirmed that clubs can continue to offer organised bowling activity in a Covid-safe manner i.e. you can continue to take part in organised outdoor sports when restrictions on social gatherings are introduced from Monday 14th September.

Minutes of the latest (09.09.20) Management Committee meeting on History page.

We have a lot of work planned at the green - in this connection the Monday afternoon work party is not an exclusive club(!) - any able-bodied volunteers are welcome to help out.

Work continues on the Conservatory/Pavilion - more photos on Events page, as it rises from the ground.

Following the latest relaxation of Govt/BCGBA guidelines (11th July), we are allowing up to twelve players on the green, and up to 30 people around the Green. It is important that everything else in Chairman Brian's updated message below is still strictly adhered to - thank you.

WARNING!! AS AT 11TH JUNE, THE MAIN GATES INTO THE SITE HAVE BEEN DAMAGED. THERE IS NOW A COMBINATION PADLOCK ON THE GATES, WHICH HAS THE SAME 4 DIGIT CODE AS THE MAIN GATE. To use this lock on entry, simply move the combination wheels so that our access code is in line with the two black marks on either side of the window on the front of the lock above the word master.(putting the code onto the back of the lock window does not work). When the code is inserted and aligned correctly; the hasp can be released by moving a button by the hasp towards the bottom of the lock.When locking the gates please make sure that the hasp goes through the two red links on the chain and turn the wheels to any number but our code.


A message from Chairman Brian:

Dear Members
After the Prime Minister’s broadcast about relaxing the virus lockdown, we received communications from the various bowling associations and in particular from Barry Massey, our county and league secretary.
In line with these communications I have undertaken a “Risk Assessment” of our Club and its facilities. With the help of Des Robinson we have instigated various safeguards and procedures, which should enable members to bowl safely if they wish to do so.

  1. Each group on the Green can consist of 2 households, (Social bubbles) or up to 6 from individual households, whilst ALWAYS practicing social distancing.

  2. Players should bring and use their own equipment where possible.

  3. Jacks and mats are available in the clubhouse and should be washed before and after use in the disinfectant and rinsing water provided.

  4. The Clubhouse and toilets are available for use, but the latter should be cleaned by the user.

  5. There should be a maximum of twelve players on the green at any one time.

  6. Players arriving on site to find the green full should either leave and then return later or wait off the green observing social distance at all times.

  7. Family and household groups may play together, but should minimize contact with other players on and off the green.

  8. Over 70’s should be extra vigilant about the above rules because of their vulnerability and must maintain social distancing at all times.

Further to the above, there are several guidance notes about how Covid impacts bowling on the BCGBA website (link on the left). There are photos on how we have responded on the Events page.

Great News!! We have been given a grant from Staffordshire Community Fund towards the construction of disabled access from the car park down to the green.Watch this space for further news on this.

Minutes of the November 2019 AGM, together with the revised Club Constitution now on History page.













Barlaston is an ancient parish and large village of Stafford overlooking the Trent valley.  The name is of Anglo Saxon origin and is derived from Beornwulfs town or estate.  Barlaston is the gateway to the Downs Banks – owned by the National Trust and offering approximately 160 acres of bracken-covered moorland forming an idyllic backdrop to Barlaston village.

Barlaston Bowls Club is a village-based Crown Green Bowls Club offering both competitive League bowls as well as friendly social bowls. Why not come along and give us a try? - you're sure of a warm welcome!
