Welcome to the Devonport  Bowls & Croquet Club

The Caring and Sharing Club

In 1924 the then Trustees of the Devonport Bowling and Tennis Club contracted with the Devonport Council to purchase on theirDevonport Croquet Ground StPatrick behalf the present site and to construct thereon 3 tennis courts, one bowling green, one croquet lawn, a pavilion and dressing room. However, in 1925 the Devonport Croquet Club appeared with its own president and presumably its own identity although the records do not show precisely how this was achieved. The tennis courts have since been relocated and in 1997 the Bowls and Croquet Clubs amalgamated.

Impending move

In November 2019 the Club will be moving to a new location in Woodrising Avenue, Spreyton, about 10 minutes’ drive south of Devonport..
