Welcome to the KC4's Tenpin Bowling Club

The KC4's Ten Pin Bowling League plays at the Hollywood Bowl in Tolworth, Surrey on Tuesdays starting at 7pm. The League has bowlers with a wide range of abilities, catering for both the serious bowlers and those that are new to the sport. 



The BTBA has issued this notice relating to the resumption of bowling.

Following the Government’s announcement that bowling centres can now open on 1st August, I wanted to draw your attention to a couple of the clauses that have been approved.

The Tenpin Bowling Proprietor’s Association have confirmed that the most important and vital thing that allowed our centres to reopen is that only members of the same family group/bubble can bowl together on the same lane, up to a maximum of 6 people.  Every other lane will be closed off and there is to be no back to back seating.

For us, as a sport, this means that for the time being Leagues and Tournaments cannot recommence, and we will not sanction any league that insists on restarting as this is against the protocols approved by Government.  We were hopeful that we could recommence leagues in September, but this is, unfortunately, looking very unlikely at this stage.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that we comply with the conditions that have been approved.  If we do not, we run the risk of bowling being shut down once again.  We need to allow our centres to open under these guidelines and wait until further easing of restrictions allows us to recommence the sport side of bowling.  We will continue to lobby the government to show them that Sport Bowling can start again, and we have measures in place to allow this to happen.

Please join me in supporting our centres and their staff to help us get back on the lanes as a sport.  We can all use the coming weeks to practice and get ourselves match fit and ready to go for when the time comes.

Please keep checking the BTBA website for updates on this topic.

EGM - 19th November 2019

The EGM was held after the nights bowling and we had a good turn out.  Thanks to those that showed up or handed in a Proxy Vote.
The night started with the election of a new Vice President, due to the resignation of Shane Poupaert.  It was a unanimous request and vote for Ian Wall to fill the spot.  Please help me to welcome our new VP - Mr Ian Wall.

The next port of business was to discuss and agree a way forward for The Floaters Team.  It has been mentioned that some weeks the opposing team has faced an empty floating team, whilst other weeks there has been a full fit and healthy Floater team to play against.  This had not really impacted on the scoring, but was still perceived as unfair.  
As such it was discussed, voted and agreed upon that as of the end of the first cycle, The Floater Team will be a "Pacing Team".  This means that week on week, anyone who bowls for the floaters, will just be a pacer.  However, if they are available or required to bowl in one of the League Teams, they will still maintain their current handicaps and be available to bowl for that team.

Please do remember, that under the terms of our contract with the bowl for the League, we MUST pay full lineage for the 11 competing teams, but we ONLY pay for players that fill the floaters team on an ad-hoc basis.  Therefore, please let's stop the Blind Scores being played if there are floaters available.  Please see myself should you need any positions within your team filled.

I hope that this all works out for the next cycle and continues on to the end of the season.  I also hope that we can then fill the Floaters Team on a permanent basis, to such an extent that we can field a full 12 teams for next season and status quo can resume.

In the meantime - Have fun, Bowl well and Enjoy yourselves Guys n Gals.

This message is to ALL members.


As a result of this season's AGM in September I'm pleased to announce we will be doing everything in our power to bring back a social event at the end of the season.

Our very own Treasurer (Sam) has already begun obtaining information from local eating establishments. Hopefully news of possible where and when will be announced in the weeks leading up to Christmas.





Bowling Suspended
Due to the current
Coronavirus outbreak
bowling is suspended
until further notice



Team Dues - Blinds and Postponed Games

Where a team cannot field a full squad and have to either bowl with a 'Blind' or postpone a match, the team concerned still has to pay the full amount, as if there were 4 players.

When there is a postponement, both teams concerned are still required to pay the lane fees for the week that they were scheduled to play originally. This is because the League contracts, with the Bowl, to play 144 games across 12 lanes each week. Where there is a postponement we are still obliged by our contract to pay. Teams postponing their match do not have to pay any additional lane fees when they later arrange to play but the Bowl needs to be told that their booking is as a result of a postponement, giving the original match date, so that they can check their records of the postponement.

Where teams decide, for time or other reasons, to resort to a 'double header', therby not playing their postponed games, they are still required to pay the lane dues.
