We Are Albany
We are a rare beast. The only crown green bowls club in a Coventry park.
Where we play
We think we're lucky. Some bemoan kids playing football on the green and the lack of a handy bar. We don't, we love it! Passers-by regularly come and watch, we get invited to community events, and it's a beautiful park to play in.
About the green
- Opened circa 1910, the oldest Crown green in our Coventry
- Owned by Coventry City Council, maintenance funded by us
- Measures approximately 40 metres square
- 10 minutes walk from Coventry railway station and City Centre
- Home to Albany Club Bowls Teams since 1996
Who we are
We believe Crown Green is a sport to be enjoyed by all. There are no barriers to playing Crown. We operate teams for all skill levels and competitiveness, have open days to give people their first taste and can loan out equipment to get you started. We want everyone to enjoy the social and health benefits from our sport - and to have tons of fun!
As well as many male teams we have a vibrant female team and two mixed gender side. We would like more but some Leagues restrict entry based on gender. We believe this is wrong and will continue to fight to change this.
Who we play for
