Luton Town Bowling Club is the third oldest Flat Green Bowling Club in Bedfordshire, having celebrated its Centenary in 2007, yet it remains forward thinking and imaginative.

We were one of the first clubs in Bedfordshire to adopt coloured shirts as an alternative to the more traditional white… and we were also the first outdoor bowling club in the county to set up a Web Site.

We will be very pleased to hear from potential new members, male or female of any age or ability. We are a friendly club with ambition, but don't take our word for it, join and find out for yourself.

Rollie Cawdell

County President

This year the club’s longest standing member assumes the position of President of Bowls Bedfordshire. Rollie Cawdell has been a member of Luton Town for over forty-five years and follows in the footsteps of his parents who were both long-standing members of Luton Town B.C. Rollie’s mother Ena was a founding member of the Ladies’ section.

An avid collector of Bedfordshire silverware he has made many trips to the National Championships at Worthing and Leamington Spa. He was a member of the 1996 Middleton Cup semi-final side and has played over 50 times for the county in that competition.

As the non-playing Middleton Cup Captain/Team Manager he played a huge part in the more recent semi-final appearances by Bedfordshire in 2016 and 2017.

The club is proud to support Rollie in his Presidential year and we wish him every success both on and off the green. His chosen charity for 2023 is 'Keech Hospice Care', which does great work in the local community.

Luton Town BC is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant by Luton Rising, which will support the club in being able to level the bowling green and buy much needed equipment to improve the playing surface.

Luton Rising is the owner of London Luton Airport and we are grateful for the grant from their community funding programme, which is managed by Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation.

Located at Ashcroft Park in Stopsley, Luton Town has a long and rich history and this award will enable the club improve the playing experience for all its members and visitors from across the 3 counties for many years to come.
