Valverde Bowls Club
Item Types : Bowling Clubs
Country : Portugal

A popular Lawn Bowls Club existed within the Vale do Lobo resort complex for several years, but in March 2008 the resort management decided that the area where the club was situated would be more valuable to them as building land, and abruptly terminated the club’s lease of the land.

This resulted in a very disgruntled group of frustrated bowlers, who formed an action group, under the chairmanship of Henry Parlour, to seek a new site for the club. Several months of discussions with the VdL resort management failed to find a suitable venue, and the group started to look elsewhere.

Late in 2008, we made contact with Jorge & Flor Paulo, owners of the Don Camillo restaurant just to the south of Almancil. The restaurant had some land at the rear for which Jorge & Flor had no plans, and they generously offered to let the group have the land for ten years for a nominal fee. The group members, however, would have to find the capital needed to construct a green and equip a new club.
