About Us

Newnham (Cambridge) Bowls Club was founded in 1928.

We are a small, friendly club with approximately 35 playing and 4 social members. We are in Division 3 of the Cambridge & District League, Section A of the Meldreth League and we are playing our second season in the Foxton Midweek League. This means that most members have opportunities of representing the club in league matches as well as participating in club competitions.

The bowling green at Lammas Land is widely regarded as having one of the better playing surfaces in the Cambridge area thanks to the efforts of our Green-Keeper and Groundsman.


We are seeking to recruit more new members and to help existing players to improve their game. To this end the club will be holding regular coaching sessions during future seasons. Prospective new bowlers are welcome to contact the club at any time to arrange an informal introduction to the game.
