Local Bowls Clubs
We work closely with three of the local bowls clubs, all located with 20 minutes by coach from Mojacar Playa beach resort in the province of Almeria, which is located in the south east corner of the autonomous region of Andalucia in Southern Spain.
The clubs have strong local membership, mainly British ex-pats, with experienced bowlers, including Spanish international players. They regularly host championships and tours by clubs and regional associations from the UK and other areas of Spain, such as Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca.
Cabrera Bowls Club and Indalo Bowls Club are both located in the countryside in a tranquil and beautiful setting close to the Spanish village of Turre, 15 to 20 minutes drive from the beach at Mojacar Playa where the hotel is located on the front line. Almeria Bowls Club is close by and located near the village of Los Gallardos, on an established campsite of mainly static caravans, which many of the club members use as a base for the periods they spend in Spain, usually September to May.
The clubs are proud of the quality of their greens, which in some cases are to championship standard and all three clubs have excellent facilities for social events with bars with catering on match and club days.
The club's members welcome visiting tours and while enjoying competitive matches, as you would expect, they are extremely hospitable and always extend the hand of friendship to visiting teams from back home, which is one reason so many visitors return time and time again.
In Spain the bowls matches are played over 18 ends and generally the dress code for the clubs is whites, however due to the temperature being fairly high for most of the year (even for long periods in the winter) shorts and sandals are permitted.
The matches are usually played in the morning starting at 10.00am or 10.30am depending on the time of year, which allows visitors to be back at their hotel by around 2.30pm or 3.00pm, for some sunbathing, a refreshing swim and rest before dinner around 7.30pm / 8.00pm.
We recommend one match against each club, over a seven day holiday, although more can be arranged if desired. This allows time for sightseeing and visits to the shops, bars restaurants and beaches of Mojacar Playa, the beautiful Moorish mountain village Mojacar Pueblo, with its fantastic views, cobble-stoned back streets and tourist / artisan shops, the nearby fishing port of Garrucha, or the market in Vera town a few miles inland.
