Solihull Bowls Club - Change to Car Parking System


Please note that a new system has been installed for parking cars at the Ramada Hotel Solihull.


Cameras have been installed to record your registration number when you enter the car park, the cost remains the same as before with the cheapest rate being £6 for up to 6 hours parking.


Anyone not complying with the rules as detailed on the notices displayed around the car park will receive a £100 fine.




Both clubs very much regret that the Ramada Hotel will no longer allow us to provide refreshments for visiting teams.  Drinks can be purchased from the Hotel but there is no  problem with players bringing their own bottled water for personal/medicinal use.


Any queries please contact the relevant team Captain as detailed in the Handbook.

2019 League Fixtures

The 2019 league fixtures are now available on the website. Due to two teams dropping out of the league after the fixtures had been finalised in 2018 and with the withdrawal of an additional team in 2019 and a new team joining in the bottom division, the lower divisions have had a few extra adjustments so that each division has the same number of teams. This has divided the 73 teams into three divisions of 11 and four divisions of 10. 


Cup Fixtures

The draw for the preliminary round of the cup has been made and can be seen on the cup fixtures page.
