Benitachell Bowling Club is located near the village of Benitachell, about 10 mins. drive from the picturesque resort of Javea, Northern Alicante.
|The attractive clubhouse has extensive covered and enclosed space for spectators. The club is known for its high level of bowling standards.||
Benitachell Bowls Club is the only independent club on the Costa Blanca, here in Spain. Owned and run by the members themselves through a board of directors and the Club Captain who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Club.
The club was opened on 20th June 1988 with some 150 titleholders (not all bowlers) and just two annual members. The club has gone from strength to strength over the last 20 years and currently has a bowling membership of well over 200, comprising of titleholders, annual and temporary members.
There is also a very active social side to the club, see Social Events from the main menu.
The club have 4 teams playing in the Costa Blanca Leagues, with it's Rinks team playing both north and south of Alicante and is known as the BBC. The three other teams compete in the "Northern League" playing other clubs north of Alicante, and go by the names of the Lions, (who are the League Champions for 2007/8) the Tigers and the Jaguars, known also as the "big cats".
We have 8 rinks which are all synthetic surfaces and the club is open 7 days a week for the members to practice their skills and play in a variety of competitions both "in house" and open events.
There are three sessions devoted to "club days", Tuesday mornings, Friday mornings and Sunday mornings, (with an optional Tuesday afternoon which the Club Captain may wish to use) which attract many of the club members.
The club house is the centre of activity before and after matches, where members can obtain refreshments and the social side of the club meet to enjoy their many functions.
