Welcome to our 50th anniversary year!
Founded in 1967, Auriol Bowling Club celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, and there will be a number of celebrations taking place throughout the year, chief among them being our Dinner and Dance on 1st April 2017 (see below, and Events for 2017 page on our website).
50th Anniversary Dinner & Dance
Auriol Bowling Club’s 50th anniversary celebrations have kicked off in style. The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell George Crawford QPM, founder member Lionel Sellers and dignitaries from the bowling world joined members, partners and friends to celebrate this milestone at a Dinner Dance at Kingswood Golf and Country Club on 1 April.

Fancy trying something new?
Are you looking for a friendly and sociable sport that’s easy to learn and keeps you fit? For a combination of fitness, friendship and fun the game of bowls is hard to beat, and at Auriol Bowling Club you’ll find the emphasis is as much on enjoyment as on winning every competition. That said, the club runs teams in men’s, ladies’ and mixed external leagues, so there are plenty of opportunities for more experienced players to test their skills against players from other clubs.
You are welcome to pop in on a Thursday morning at 10.45 for 11.00 for a free 'taster' session. No special clothes required, just bring flat-soled shoes, and coaching and equipment will be provided.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact the Club Secretary David Regan on 020 8337 8919, or visit About Our Club.

.... Sutton & Epsom League Triples
Congratulations to Geoff Izzard, Chris Mead & Brian Russell for reaching the Finals of the 2017 S&EBC League Triples Tournament. This follows an Auriol team winning the Triples title in 2013 (see Results for 2017).
.... RDML League
Congratulations to all those members who have played in the RDML matches this season in achieving our highest-ever League position, finishing fourth in the table, just two points behind the 'bronze medal' place which went to Carshalton. Well done all! (See Results for 2017).
Our annual presentation of trophies to the club competition champions and finalists took place on Saturday 23 September at King Georges Field Indoor Bowling Club, where around 50 members enjoyed a 3-course meal prepared and served by Carolyn and her team from Love Your Greens, with live music provided by our very own James Rayne in his Swinging Sixties duo. A good time was had by all, and particular thanks for organising the event go to Chris Ballard, Shirley Tracey and Dave Rich (see Events for 2017).
Very many congratulations to all the finalists, and to the new club champions, including the ladies singles champion for 2017, Di Newman, and the new men’s singles champion, James Seeley. It was great to see so many new or recent members’ names on the roll of honour – and we’ll surely see them appear again in the future (see Results for 2017).
