About us

Church Fenton Bowling Club was set up in 1986 to play Flat Green Bowling.

In 2010 it was decided to start a Short Mat Bowling section with the aim of keeping members in contact during the winter months. We joined the Selby Short Mat Bowling Association with affiliation to the North Yorkshire Short Mat Bowling Association (NYSMBA) and the Northern England Short Mat Bowling Association. (NESMBA) and the English Short Mat Bowling Association (ESMBA). 

We play in the Selby Fours and Triples Short Mat Leagues. 

At the start we were grateful for a grant from NYSMBA which enabled us to buy one new mat. Our original venue was  the Village Hall, but in 2011 we decided to build an extension to the existing Outdoor Bowling Clubhouse so we could have the use of two mats. This work was completed in August 2012 just in time for the start of that coming season.

We started with one team in each of the Selby Leagues but due to the support it was decided to start a second team. At present we have two teams playing in the Selby Midweek Fours League, Church Fenton A in Division 1 and  Church Fenton B, in Division 2.  We also have two teams who play in the Selby Tuesday Triples League, Church Fenton 1 & Church Fenton 2.

We are friendly Club and always welcome new members. 

If you would like to try the game please contact us and we will arrange a visit, we are sure you will enjoy the experience.
