The bowling green was formally opened on 23rd April 2005 (St Georges day) by Councillor Mike Beresford, the driving force behind the sports field complex. Once complete, the complex, inclusive of the bowling club, was officially opened on 20th August 2005 by Sir Geoff Hurst, the hat trick hero of England's 1966 World Cup winning football team.

The Club colours are purple & white, reflecting a tenuous link with the clergy. The Club badge reflects the chess board design of the Parish Council Chairman's badge of honour. The motto 'Facta non Verba' may be translated as 'Deeds not Words'.

Bishops Cleeve Bowls Club enjoys superb views across the sports field to the cotswold escarpment and Cleeve Hill, further enhanced from time to time by the sight of passing steam trains in the distance running on the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway. Gliders can also be seen in the sky finding thermals in which to soar over the hill.
