Our History

Planning for the club started on 2 December 1908 at a meeting of a handful of interested people held at the White Hart Assembly Rooms (now known as the Snooty Fox). Following several fundraising events, such as the concert on 10 December 1909 held at the White Hart, the club was officially opened by members on 5 May 1910.

The club's first recorded match was away at Cirencester on Saturday, 4 June 1910. Tetbury played Nailsworth at home on 23 June winning by 10 points and they continued their winning streak on 30 June by beating Westonbirt by 19 points. That first season, with 45 members, Tetbury played 14 matches - Lost 7, Won 6 and Drew 1. "Not such a bad record, for a first season." 

We have been affiliated with Gloucestershire Bowling Association since January 1911.
