Sponsorship.

We are always pleased to accept sponsorship to help pay for various expenses incurred during a typical season, or to provide prize money for events.

Our annual Marldon Fours Open Tournament in August attracts around 100 visiting bowlers and spectators from the local South Devon area. Sponsoring this event will allow you to have your name printed on all the score cards used for the event, a banner at the side of the green and, if you supply us with business cards we can place them in a prominent position in the clubhouse and/or hand them out.

You could design an advertising poster for use on the clubhouse or around the green. Sponsorship money will be put towards cash prizes for this event.

A cash sum to Sponsor our club will allow you to advertise your services in and around the clubhouse and green for a twelve month period, if we receive your sponsorship early in the year, your advert can also be added on our fixture card (held by all members) and selected match scorecards and will appear on a sponsor page on our web site.

Sponsors sometimes design and print their own scorecards and we will use these for games if they are supplied to us. We use around 1000 cards in a season.

Our outdoor season is 26 weeks long but our clubhouse continues to open in Winter for social events and weekly Short mat bowling league matches.

During summer season we have an average of 7-8 fixtures per week, about 2900 players will visit the club during the summer months including around 1500 bowlers from other clubs and visitors/spectators, as well as our own membership of around 100 bowling and social members who will be on premises a few times a week.

As many as 56 bowlers can be on the green at the same time and some days see over 80 bowlers using the green at some time during the day.

We have visits from local clubs in Paignton, Torquay & Babbacombe, Brixham, Dartmouth, Stoke Fleming, Kingsbridge, Yealmpton, Totnes, Newton Abbot, Kingsteignton, Chudleigh, Tavistock, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Starcross, Bovey Tracey, Crediton, Exeter, Buckfastleigh and Sidmouth.

We also attract Touring bowls teams from around the country including Lancashire, West Midlands, London, Essex, Surrey, Hampshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Cornwall. These teams usually stay in hotels in the Torbay area for 5 to 7 days, playing local clubs and visiting local attractions when they are not bowling.

We also host County events for Bowls Devon from time to time, attracting spectators as well as the players and teams involved.
