Bowling Club

Clifton-upon-Teme Bowling Club
was formed in 1994 when the green was created on the Recreation Ground. By 1999 the club's 30 members competed in 26 friendly matches with other clubs throughout the West Midlands. The Club Chairman, Eddie Thompson, was one of the founding members and his wife Marie is Club Captain. The season starts in April and ends in September.The club has now grown to 35 members, who meet on Mondays 6pm. Members who prefer to have a go at another time, can just give Marie or Colling a call. In the winter the club uses the Clifton Village Hall for indoor bowling.


The Friendship Club was formed in 1971 to provide an opportunity for local residents over the age of 50 to meet, exchange ideas and socialise on a regular basis. Members meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month in the Village Hall in addition to occasional outings during the summer months. For more details contact:

The Clifton-on-Teme Hunt is one of the youngest in England, founded by local farmers in 1926. The hunt kennels were originally at Shelsley Walsh near the Kennel Bend on the Hill Climb track.
The opening meet is always held on the village green in Clifton in November, and on New Year's day the hounds meet again at the New Inn. The Hunt also organises the annual Clifton Point-to-Point races at Upper Sapey.


The Clifton-on-Teme Pony Club branch was formed in 1953 and is part of Pony Club Area 9, where it is one of the smallest branches. The Pony Club hold rallies throughout the year at local venues with more specialist training for those wishing to compete in teams.
The aim is to provide a sound learning base for all of the members, so that they may appreciate the enjoyment to be gained from the art of horsemanship combined with fun and friendship.

Tennis Club

The Clifton Tennis Club was formed in 1986 when members met at Martley to play until fund-raising efforts by the CPFA resulted in two hard tennis courts being built in the village in 1992. A multi-use pavilion has since been added, enabling Tennis Club members to enjoy all year round playing and changing facilities. The Club is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association and caters for juniors and students as well as family members. Club nights every Monday & Wednesday 6.30pm.


Clifton Handbell ringers

The Clifton Handbell Ringers were formed over 30 years ago following the discovery of some handbells at Shelsley that were not being used. Funds were raised over a number of years for the purchase of the set of 22 bells now used by the group of seven women who regularly give performances in the area under the leadership of

Pat Bradley (01886) 812 313.


The Friends of Clifton-on-Teme  Primary School  (formerly PTA - Parents and Teachers Association) support the school staff and help to raise funds for items of school equipment and educational trips. The current committee consists of:
