Yelverton Bowling Club was founded in 1927, and has around 65 members, attracting players from all around the local area, including some parts of Plymouth and Yelverton’s neighbouring towns and villages.
We are a friendly and inclusive club, having men’s, ladies’ and mixed teams, as well as a strong Junior Section.
Our clubhouse and green are just a short distance from Yelverton village centre, at Meavy Lane next to the Yelverton War Memorial Hall, where there is ample parking.

We are affiliated to Bowls England and Bowls Devon and regularly play matches within the Plymouth and District League.
Our Ladies’ team participates in the P&D League and the Border Triples.

Our Club Night runs every Thursday throughout the season, starting at around 6pm. These evenings give members and guests a chance to practise their skills in a friendly environment. All members playing can choose to be entered into the Club night competition with the chance to win a trophy at the end of the playing season. Visitors are welcome to join us on Club Night.

All of our members are encouraged to enter club competitions, and there is a weekend every season dedicated to playing the finals and celebrating the achievements of our members. Players are supported if they wish to enter County competitions, working towards their County badges.

In addition to league and competition matches we also play friendly matches with other local clubs, and so there are plenty of opportunities to play both competitively as well as social bowls just for fun. .

We offer coaching at Senior and Junior levels from beginners to experienced bowlers and have 4 qualified coaches who are able to deliver this.

It’s not all bowls either – enjoyable though that is – we have an active and well supported social side, holding dinners, regular whist drives, car boot sales and general get togethers all year round.
Whatever you are looking for in a club we like to pride ourselves on being able to offer something for everyone
