Suffield Park Bowls Club
Welcome to Suffield Park Bowls Club in Cromer, Norfolk. We offer lawn green bowling on one of the best greens in North Norfolk. We are a very welcoming and friendly club catering for bowlers of all ages and abilities, whether social or competitive.
New members are very welcome, whether new or experienced, playing or non-playing or visitors to the area. Make new friends through playing or through our active social calendar throughout the year.
We play two formats of the game - Association (Bowls England) and Federation. Only a handful of greens in North Norfolk meet the higher standards required for Association bowls and this is the format played throughout England and all over the world. Federation bowls is also popular at our club as it allows us to play against teams from local villages with varying qualities of greens (the requirements are less stringent) and this can present some very different challenges! It is perfectly possible to play Association bowls at one club and Federation at another e.g. to support a local village team as player registrations are with different bodies. Typically we play Association bowls in friendly matches and in the Wednesday evening county men's league and Federation bowls in the Tuesday evening county federation league, the NANSA afternoon league and the Cromer & District evening league, which we are actively involved in running. We also have intra club competitions that all playing members can take part in and opportunities for social bowling, which is how many players get started.
Our club has a fine purpose-built clubhouse with a main function room of 75 sq. m., comfortably seating 60. There is also a separate kitchen and well-stocked (very reasonably priced) lounge bar.
There is free on street parking adjacent to the club.
Our clubhouse is available for hire to local groups, organisations and individuals for events (birthdays, weddings, parties) when not in use for bowls and we can help with catering if required.
Facilities for disabilities - we have extra-wide paths and ramps for access to the clubhouse and green, along with an accessible toilet with room for a wheelchair. Assistance dogs are welcome.
COVID-19 - Bowling is a perfect way of exercising in the fresh air and playing sport during restrictions, with plenty of space for social distancing outdoors and covid measures in place in the clubhouse.
