Welcome to Ashford (Kent)
Road Closure: Givaudan

Please note the following if you play at the Givaudan club and approach from M20 Junction 10.  From June 20th until early September, the road to the Givaudan club from M20 Junction 10 will be closed.  The road to Givaudan from Junction 9 and from the Canterbury Road will be open as normal.

The recommended alternative route is to exit the motorway at Junction 9.  From the Motorway junction follow A28 Canterbury.  Take the first exit to the next roundabout, take the first exit again.  Turn left at the T-junction, go through 2 further sets of lights and turn right at the roundabout at the edge of town to Givaudan.  There are yellow diversion signs from junction 9 to the roundabout.  The journey will be about 10 minutes longer than normal.   

Please note:  As from 24th January, the start time on Tuesdays will be brought forward to 7pm prompt.  Please arrive by 6.50

Directions to Ashford Indoor Bowls Club (Thursday Sessions from April)

From April 2nd our Thursday sessions will be held at the Ashford Indoor Bowls Club, Jemmett Road, TN23 4QD, starting at 6.40 pm sharp. 

Directions as follows:  From the M20: Exit at Junction 10, then take the southern orbital road to the Designer Outlet roundabout.  Turn left toward South Ashford, ahead at the next roundabout, then turn right at the lights (next to the Ashford International Club) into Beaver Road.  Turn immediately left into Bond Road.  Go ahead to the T-junction, then turn right into Jemmett Road.  The Indoor Bowls Club is about 1/4 mile on the left at the start of Victoria Park.  Distance from the Designer Outlet roundabout is about 1 mile.  Please note that the clubhouse is a large single level building with an adjacent free car park.  If you use SatNav this will incorrectly tell you your destination is on the right.  You may alternatively reach Jemmett Road from Brookfield Road, but there is no access from the town centre.

 

New Arrangements for the Host System

In accordance with the vote at the 2013 AGM, the host system will be revised as follows.  A host duty list will be published as at present, but the HOST will need to be activated.  Anyone wishing to play on a Tuesday evening and requiring a partner should telephone Bob Jones on 01233 756362 or phone / text to 07747 860342 by 5.30 pm on the day.  If more than one person needs a partner, you will be paired up.  Otherwise you will play with the host.  The host should telephone Bob Jones after 5.30 pm on the day to find out whether or not they are required, therefore avoiding a wasted journey or allowing time to make alternative arrangements for a partner.  As a result, it is expected Club Members previously excused host duty because of traveling long distance or shared travel will now do host duty.  Click to view the current host list.
