THE BRITISH PROFESSIONAL CROWN GREEN BOWLING ASSOCIATION
The Panel was founded in late 1908, so has now been in operation for well over a 100 years
It's permanent home is The Red Lion Bowling Green, Wigan Road, Westhoughton, BL5 3RJ
Games take place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday all year round, with play commencing each day @ 12-30 pm
The upcoming fixtures can be found on the “Fixtures” page of our website & results of previous games are available in "Results" sections
With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic The Committee have decided the Billy Joe Memorial Handicap cannot be held this year.
A decision will be made later in the year regarding The Dougie Wright Xmas Panel Handicap when the position becomes clearer on social gathering rules & competitive sports.
Full results from both these competitions held in previous years can be found in the "Results" section under the appropriate headings
Each day there are two 31 up matches between players from the list of registered bowlers known as a "Panel of Players" so now you see where the name comes from
Spectators are always welcome and will enjoy some excellent bowling in what are usually very competitive matches and if you wish, you can have a wager on the outcome, even make both players winners if you are adept at betting or if you're not, end up with 2 losers
There is plenty of FREE parking, ample seating around the green and under shelter if required and you can also get hot and cold drinks
Incidentally, we now have TWO viewing lounges with heating available for the less hardy spectators
Daily entrance costs £2.00 for members and a temporary membership is available at £2.50 each day for those not wishing to become FULL members
