In addition Carreras has a full programme of mixed friendly matches played at weekends against mainly local clubs.

There are numerous club knockout competitions for members of both sexes for which trophies are awarded and presented to winners and runners-up at the end of season dinner dance.

Social bowlers are just as welcome if you choose not to play competitively and we have a Club Day each Wednesday where you can have a 'roll up' and socialize with other members.

The Club's membership fee is £15 per year, plus match fees of £1.50 per game and £2 for each club competition entered. There is also an annual 'green fee' payable to the Basildon Council, who own and maintain our green, and this allows play as a Club team member on any of the Council’s greens.

THERE WERE NO LEAGUE GAMES OR COMPETITIONS PLAYED IN 2020 DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.
The green remained closed to the Club but became available for Club Days in August and September. A rolling triples competition was arranged and played by members, with cash prizes given to the winners.
