(Holders of the Hawker Cup, Longford Cup, and champions of Oxon Bowls League Div Three)


Founded in 1926, Adderbury Bowls Club has been the home of good competitive bowling for 92 years.

We have a proud past and a fine future - and the present is pretty good, too.

2018 was the most successful season in our club's history.  

We won the Hawker Cup, one of the OBA’s most prestigious club competitions, and our coach Phil Gladden won the Longford Cup – a much sought-after OBA singles trophy.

The Hawker cup-winning team (pictured) is, back row (left to right) Phil Gladden,  Darren Sharpe, Ted Eley, Paul Jelfs, Ian Dunn and Nigel Eley. Front, Mick Jelfs (left) and Chris Skidmore.

We finished top of the Oxford and District Bowls League Division Three – unbeaten and 18 points ahead of the team in second place.

Our Saturday and mid-week ‘friendly’ teams won the majority of their matches and the whole club is looking forward to 2019.                                                                         

Success on the green hasn’t changed the way we are off it.

Visitors receive a warm welcome and the club has a reputation for sportsmanship and friendship.

Adderbury is a thriving club with a full match fixture list and a busy social calendar.

In addition to our Oxford and District Bowls League matches we have a full programme of Saturday and mid-week  non-league games.

We compete in national and county competitions and our own club championships are keenly contested. 

 Our green is maintained in first class condition to enable good bowling.

 We have a comfortably furnished, spacious clubhouse and our well-stocked bar has drinks at club prices.

 New men and women members, playing or social, of all ages, are welcome.

 Off the green, we organise regular social events including monthly quiz nights, music/dance/comedian evenings and other occasions.

If you’re looking for exercise, competitive or easy-going sport, friendship – and a great social life, Adderbury Bowls Club is the place to be.
