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 Presentation Lunch.

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

The Club's membership fee is £20 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 match play as a Club team member on any of the Council’s greens.
