Warwick District Council is continuing its investment in the bowling greens at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa, ahead of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Work will be undertaken on two greens during each of the next two close seasons – C and D Green (commencing mid-September 2019) followed by A and B green (commencing mid-September 2020).
The work will involve the removal of the turf, removal of excessive thatch and organic material, and the levelling of the playing surface. The new greens will then be created by reseeding. Work will also be carried out to improve the banks and ditches on all four greens.
Play on the new greens should be able to be gradually increased during June and July 2020 and 2021, and the greens will be fully back in use in order that the Bowls England National Championships may continue to be held in their entirety at Victoria Park as planned in 2020 and 2021.
