Below is the Club Dress Code that has been approved by the membership Committee.
Please make sure you wear the correct clothing whilst on the green to avoid embarrassment if asked to leave if incorrectly dressed.
Outdoor dress code
a) On ‘GREY’ days, mid grey (not dark or pale) tailored or bowls branded* pair of trousers, bowling skirt, cropped trousers or tailored shorts (NO jeans, casual/cargo trousers or track suit bottoms).
b) On ‘WHITE’ days, tailored or bowls branded* pair of white trousers, bowling skirt, cropped trousers or tailored shorts (NO jeans, casual/cargo trousers, leggings or track suit bottoms).

New rule from 2023:
h) It is a requirement when representing Hadleigh against other clubs, only the new approved club polo shirts to be worn.
i) When playing internal matches (not against other clubs), members may wear the new approved club polo shirts or their existing white polo/tailored shirts.
Anyone who is seen not wearing the correct clothing will, in the first instance be reminded of the dress code by the Captains or Vice-Captains.
If there is a further instance, they will have to leave the rinks and change their clothes to the correct clothing. This rule applies to every time members are on the green for any session - roll-up sessions, matches, marking and competitions.
Players must change into their bowls shoes before they enter and play on the outside rinks or in the short mat hall. Bowls shoes must not be worn to and from the bowls club.
If you are unclear about the correct dress code, please speak to either of the Captains or Vice-Captains.
