Ilminster Snooker Club

Ilminster Bowling Club has excellent facilities for all bowlers who want to play, enjoy and socialise in the world of bowls. If you wish to just play for fun or prefer to play seriously Ilminster has it all, and a warm welcome awaits you. Ilminster has also managed to attract fantastic players that have the drive and skill to play and compete at the highest level.

2019 'A Year To Be Remembered'

Ilminster Bowling Club had a fantastic year in the Outdoor Section. Managed by Jonny Kingston and his selection committee David Pugh and Dave Crouch. It saw Ilminster C win the South West 2 County League by 20 points; Ilminster B whom were only just promoted to Premier 2 in 2018 broke new ground. Never before has a B side won or gained promotion from Premier 2, making Ilminster Bowling Club the first team in history to have 2 teams in Somerset County Premier 1. Albeit a nail biting season, Ilminster A held their nerve to regain the Premier 1 title for a staggering 7th time.

The year also had more success at National Level with Matt Hamilton & Neil Rowe qualifying through to the National Finals in the Pairs, then the triples alongside Charlie Takle. Finally they qualified again in the fours abily assisted by Jonny Kingston. Will Anderson also made staggering progress in the Over 60's singles to reach the Semi Finals. 

Bill Anderson & Angie Thompson - County Mixed Pairs Champions, Neil Rowe, Matt Hamilton & Charlie Takle - County Triples Champions, Matt Hamilton, Neil Rowe, Charlie Takle & Jonny Kingston - County Fours Champions.


Ilminster Snooker Club established in 2017. The club has two full size match standard tables, with recently installed under table heating. We belive that Ilminster SNooker CLub is the only club in the south west of england to have under table heating.
