of Leven Bowling Club is situated in the Town of Alexandria, West
Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Arguably the largest and most successful bowling
club in West Dunbartonshire, we
have 240 full members and two of the best lawn bowling greens
in the area.
We provide excellent facilities for our members
and guests and it is now our intention to host one of the
best bowling club websites around.
We have a long history having been founded in 1867 and, as
our name suggests, we are in the Vale
of Leven just over
one mile from the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond in one of the
most picturesque parts of Scotland - if not the World.
This website is being provided as a resource for our members,
guests and flat green bowlers in Scotland, the UK and Worldwide.
We will provide information about club, association and Scottish bowling events in our lawn
calendar during the season but we will also provide details
of social functions and
It will also contain useful tips about local lawn
bowling rules and bylaws, Scottish
Bowling Association rules, and importantly, flat
etiquette. A section describing the Game
of Lawn Bowls has been included
for visitors who don't know the game. Browse
our pages to learn more about lawn bowls and our club.

We have not forgotten that Lawn Bowls is a leisure activity
so apart from the actual lawn bowling activities we have
featured our "Locker
Room", which is a page with
jokes and cartoons. We also have another humour page with
a collection of those funny
videos and other downloads
that people email to each other. These are not about lawn
bowls or bowling clubs but have a look at the one by Robin
Williams on the Scots and Golf. (Note: Sorry, the videos page has had to be
removed. It was costing too much for the bandwidth.)
Serious or humourous contributions are invited from both
bowling club members and guests. Volunteer contributors
are required so if you fancy yourself as a writer and you
have any articles we could use please get in touch. You
here and we have also introduced our bowls
club mailing list for
our members (and guests). This will be used to notify
you of upcoming events in both our bowling and social
calendars throughout the year.

this website it has been used to distinguish our form of
flat green bowling or level green bowling on grass from tenpin bowling and crown green bowling. A search
on the Internet for "bowling" will
yield results that are predominantly related to tenpin.
We have to make the distinction in order to get found by
those seeking information about real bowlers and real
bowling greens :o)
