Over the years Finchley Bowling Club has has enjoyed some notable successes, including having players reach the national 'all-England' finals on several occasions. More recently, in the last 5 years the club has won both the 'President's Cup' and the 'Prentice Cup' (both fought for amongst over 20 teams from the 'Finchley District' section of Middlesex), and has seen some members reach and win finals at District and County levels.
