Welcome to Benitachell Bowls Club
Introduction to the BBC
Benitachell Bowls Club is the only independent club on the Costa Blanca owned and run by the members, for the members, through a Board of Directors and the Club Captain – who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Club.
The club was opened on 20th June 1988 with eight rinks which are all synthetic surfaces and the club is open seven days a week. We currently have over 100 members – bowlers and social; bowling members are eligible to play in all competitions, leagues and club mornings, and can come to the Club for roll-ups (practise sessions) whenever the rinks are not in use.
We host ‘open’ competitions available to all federated bowlers of this and other local clubs and ‘closed’ competitions for members of this club only; the club normally fields teams in the ‘Northern’ League, and also a team in the ‘Winter’ League.
Club mornings, which attract many of the club members, are held three days a week on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays; members play with and against other members and these tend to be social gatherings as well. During the summer months there is also an evening club day on Thursday with a social meal afterwards for those who wish to partake.
We also hold fun days during the year (e.g. hangover bowls on 1st Jan, Valentines massacre – ladies versus men on Feb 14th, Last Bowler Standing – a fun day knockout, and Founders Day).
The club house is the centre of activity before and after matches where members can obtain refreshments and also enjoy the social side of the club and its many functions; you can get a flavour of the competitions and social events by searching our website, or on Facebook:- ‘benitachellbowlsclub’.
For new bowlers we offer an introductory course with our club instructor which consists of three sessions which are free. At the end of the course you can choose whether you want to join. We can provide you with a set of bowls on loan until such time that you decide to buy your own. A selection of different types of bowls is available. We also have a number of coaches, who run improver´s courses from time to time and offer one-to-one coaching if required.
We can then arrange a quick tour of the Club and give you more information about our activities and what is available, whether as a novice or an experienced bowler.
We are situated in Camino de la Torreta, just outside the village of Benitachell with panoramic views of the “Montgo”.
