Social Links

At Garston Bowls Club, we are reaching out in the hope you may be willing and able to sponsor the club for the upcoming season, Located in Lea Farm Recreation Ground off First Avenue, you may have seen articles in Garston News about the club’s successes, with members ranging from 11 years old to those in their 90’s. We also have an active social media presence on Facebook and Instagram, especially during the summer bowling season (May-September).

We are offering 3 tiers of sponsorship, as below:
– Basic Sponsor – £100 a year – announcement of partnership on our social media pages and your company logo displayed in the clubhouse
– Enhanced Sponsor – £150 a year – as above, plus company name mentioned in all team updates for district, county and national competitions (these occur multiple times a week)
– Premium Sponsor – £250 a year – as above, with greater prominence of logo and name. Also, opportunity to arrange an evening of playing bowls with your colleagues – enjoy a corporate event at Garston Bowls Club, learn the sport and make use of our licensed bar.

Target Audience

Bowls is unique in that it is open to all ages, genders, disabilities and abilities. It's inclusivity is one of it's greatest selling points. It is far from the 'old man's game' stigma which is attached to it.

Key Dates and Timings

12 month sponsorship period as standard, starting from April to coincide with the start of the outdoor bowls season.
We would welcome a more long-term sponsor partner who may want to invest more and in turn receive increased exposure (through shirt sponsorship, but providing the new kit will be expensive)

Specific Opportunity Details

Our Facebook page has 775 followers, and posts regularly during the season (May - September) and receives many interactions on each of these.
Instagram has only just been created for this season but we hope that it can have the same reach as our Facebook page does by the time the season gets up-and-running.

One key factor which we are offering is the chance to come and give bowls a go with your colleagues - as part of the 'Premium Sponsor' package, or we can look into running this on a one-off basis potentially. Come along and enjoy a corporate evening on a Friday night (from 6pm or so), give the game a go and then enjoy use of our bar into the night.

Features and Benefits

We would be able to display your logo and company name etc. within our clubhouse, and for the 'Enhanced Sponsor' package we will also include your company name on the club social media announcements, which are regular throughout the playing season.

Other Partners

We have no fixed, long-term partners to date - we are looking to set up a sponsorship framework going forward and hope to create long-lasting partnerships


Predominantly we are looking for cash investment. We need to stabilise the club, then look to expanding our numbers and increasing it's position as a community hub.

Other Info

We would welcome any interest, be it greater or smaller than the current offerings. Banners around the grounds can also be provided with company names etc. (if provided by sponsor) to enhance the exposure, as these can also be seen from outside the club. No opportunity will be considered too large or too small!
