Where we shoot

Indoor season

For our indoor season, we shoot at Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club (see below).

Our indoor season runs from October to April. During this season we shoot inside an 16.5-metre indoor hall. Indoor sessions are one hour long, and the times are currently as follows:

Thursdays – 6pm to 6pm
Sundays – 12pm to 3pm

Outdoor season

Our outdoor season runs from May to September. During this time we shoot in a sports field, at distances up to 60 metres. Our outdoor sessions are one hour long, and the times are currently as follows:

Sunday – 1pm to 3pm
Wednesday – 6pm to 8pm

Outdoor sessions are weather-dependent and may be cancelled if it becomes too hot, wet or dark to shoot safely. You will be notified of a cancelled session via email and the ClubEvent app.

Booking a session

There are limited spaces for each session available and bookings are made via the ClubEvent app (available on both Android and iOS) on a weekly basis, or on our sessions booking page (which is restricted to Club members).

Under 18s must be accompanied by a guardian to all sessions.

Please note that for safety reasons, only low poundage compound bows (30lb or less) can be shot.

Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club

The address of our indorr venue is Rugby Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club, Bruce Williams Way, Rugby CV22 5LZ.

Please use the leisure centre car park and then walk down to the Bowls Club. It is free to park.

There are toilets inside the Bowls Club.

The hall is a slightly shorter length than the one we had at Harris and the shooting distance is approximately 16.5 metres. While we know to many people this won’t be an issue, those entering competitions will need to beware.

The hall itself is a function room inside the bowls club. There will be members of the bowls club playing bowls as you enter. Please be quiet and respectful as you enter the premises.

When you first enter the Bowls Club, please walk through the double doors, turn right into the main bowling area. The function room is a little on the way down on the left hand side.

The hall is small and there is not room to have people setting up their equipment while others shoot. We do not want people setting up their kit in the area outside the hall as this might disturb the bowls club members. Therefore, we will be enforcing the 50 minutes shooting sessions to allow people time at the beginning of each session to set up their kit. Please only set up your kit inside the hall (or outside of the building, if you prefer).
