Upton Victory Hall Bowling Club

The ‘Bowling and Indoor Games Club’ is one of the original constituent clubs of the Upton Victory Hall which has, since 1919, been such a feature of the Parish of Upton. The Club benefits from the shared services of a full time groundsman who has created a green which is considered by us, and our visiting teams, as the finest in the area.
