Improvements to Lawn Bowls Clubhouse for next year’s Commonwealth Games

As we countdown to next year’s Lawn Bowls and Para Bowls events taking place at Victoria Park in Royal Leamington Spa, the Bowls Clubhouse in the park has received an extensive refurbishment in preparation for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The refurbished clubhouse provides a world-class facility for national and club players. The comprehensive renovation includes redecoration throughout, new lighting, flooring, carpets and fully refurbished toilet facilities as well as the addition of enhanced Wi-Fi provision, an upgraded PA system and a new café patio.

The refurbishment of the Victoria Park Bowls Clubhouse is one of several projects the council is involved in to support the growth of participation in Lawn and Para Bowls in the District. Warwick District Council has partnered with Bowls England to promote the Junior Bowls Challenge in the district’s schools, providing children of all ages an opportunity to get involved in the sport.

The work carried out on the clubhouse is part of a package of public realm improvements being completed in Royal Leamington Spa, in preparation for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, when Victoria Park will host the Lawn Bowls and Para Bowls events.

These improvements have been managed and delivered by Warwick District Council and made possible by grant funding of almost £1.6m allocated from the Government’s Local Growth Fund through the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP).
