ABM SKITTLES CLUB Wallingford Sports Park | Hithercroft Road | Wallingford | OX10 9RB
ABM Skittles Club celebrates it’s 60th Anniversary in 2024 and, to mark the occasion, we are holding a very special event on June 21st and 22nd THE WALLINGFORD FESTIVAL OF SKITTLES  Click here for more information…
For more details of the festivities, please email us at abmskittles@gmail.com
The ABM Skittles Club was formed in 1964 and is one of the few skittles leagues outside of the hotbed of 9-pin skittles - the West Country. We play most weekday evenings (Monday to Thursday) throughout the year with both a Winter and a Summer league in full swing. We use traditional wooden balls and pins and our players range from 16 to 80 years of age. Although the league is competitive, most players are mainly attracted by the comradery - oh, and the low bar prices! If you are interested in joining us at the Wallingford Sports Park on Hithercroft Road, just pop down and watch a game - you will be made most welcome! Enjoy a drink from the bar. Alternatively, to find out more, email us at abmskittles@gmail.com
On Friday 21st June, we open the doors to the WALLINGFORD FESTIVAL of SKITTLES, our 60th anniversary event. Festivities get underway at 6pm but please feel free to come along any time from 5… The first main event of the evening is an “exhibition” match featuring the top 7 in the averages from the last Winter League (cruelly named, by some, as The Magnificent Seven!) playing against some of the ABM legends of all time, captained by Peter Abery, himself a great of the game for all of the club’s 60 years! This match starts at 7pm Following on from the legends’ match we have a charity singles competition with up to 60 competitors. This begins at 8pm. If you wish to take part, and haven’t yet registered, email us at abmskittles@gmail.com. The entry fee is £5 and all proceeds will be donated to the Wallingford Family Centre, a community project where families with young children can enjoy welcoming and inclusive group activities, receive support and access information.

Throughout the evening there will be a Beer & Cider Festival and we will be joined by some famous players from the West Country. Hot bar food will be available and music classics from the 60s, 70s and 80s will be played. Requests will be taken - if you can find the controlling DJ! In addition, a table skittles competition will be taking place with a small entry fee AND a cash prize to the winner on the night!! On Saturday 22nd June our main event gets underway, with team skittles being played on two alleys from 10am until late in the evening. There are still two team places up for grabs - if you are interested just email us! Breakfasts, lunches and teas will be available on the day (with breakfasts being served up until 1pm for the late risers!). The Beer & Cider festival will continue, as will the DJ’s classic playlist, and the evening will be rounded off by the fabulous Soul Survivors band!!! Come along, - it is free!!!!!!
