THE PANEL

THE BRITISH PROFESSIONAL CROWN GREEN BOWLING ASSOCIATION

Introduction


Welcome to



The Panel



website


The Panel was founded in late 1908, so has now been in operation for well over a 100 years


It's permanent home is The Red Lion Bowling Green, Wigan Road, Westhoughton, BL5 3RJ


Games take place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday all year round, with play commencing each day @ 12-30 pm


The up coming fixtures can be found on the “Fixtures” page of our website & results of previous games are available in "Results" sections


Currently we also hold TWO open competitions on the green each year. The Billy Joe Edwards Memorial is held in late summer & The Dougie Wright Xmas Panel Handicap is as you'd expect held over the Xmas period


Full results from both these competitions held in previous years can be found in the "Results" section under the appropriate headings


Each day there are two 31 up matches between players from the list of registered bowlers known as a "Panel of Players" so now you see where the name comes from


Spectators are always welcome and will enjoy some excellent bowling in what are usually very competitive matches and if you wish, you can have a wager on the outcome, even make both players winners if you are adept at betting or if you're not, end up with 2 losers


There is plenty of FREE parking, ample seating around the green and under shelter if required and you can also get hot and cold drinks


Incidentally, we now have TWO viewing lounges with heating available for the less hardy spectators


Daily entrance costs £2.00 for members and a temporary membership is available at £2.50 each day for those not wishing to become FULL members
