We are always pleased to accept sponsorship to help pay for various expenses incurred during a typical season, and to provide prize money for our Annual Marldon 4's invitation tournament which attracts players from various parts of South Devon.
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.
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.
Our annual Marldon Fours Open Tournament in August attracts around 100 visiting bowlers and spectators from the local South Devon area. Sponsoring us will allow you to have your name printed on some of the score cards used for the event, a banner at the side of the green (if you have one suitable) 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 the cash prizes for this event.

Sponsor boards on our green surrounds
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.
You could ask to sponsor our bar, which would result in your company name/advert being displayed on the bar or it could be named appropriately. ie. "The Cox's Bar" or perhaps donate free tickets for an event at your venue, ie. Meal for two, two rail tickets, free car service, etc. which we could auction or use as raffle prizes.
You could sponsor this web site for a cost of £135 in exchange for an acknowledgement on the site and in our fixture card. (£135)
