The parish bowling clubs meet at the Crown Bowling Green at Hadley. It is adjacent to the lovely half-timbered 16th century inn of the same name and is surrounded by beautiful Worcestershire countryside.
Two clubs bowl at ‘The Hadley’:
The ‘Thursday club’, which meets every Thursday afternoon is the oldest club. It has its own clubhouse, and players enjoy a meal together after bowling. Membership is by invitation.
The ‘Hadley Monday Bowling club’ previously called ‘The Beefeaters Bowling club’ meets every Monday and Friday evening at 5.30pm from April to October.
New members are welcome. There is a traditional 10pence stake on a match. The whole ethos of the club is one of friendly rivalry, all settled over a pint or two in the inn afterwards with lively banter.
