Drakes Pride Bowls
Drakes Pride manufacture and distribute level and crown green bowls equipment in Liverpool. The Company's history can be traced back as far as 1820 to Darlington's of Liverpool who used the Drakes Pride name throughout their history, evidenced by the Company's registered trade mark. In the 1960's, the family business of E.A. Clare & Son took over Darlingtons and in the early 1980's decided to expand into the manufacture of Lawn Bowls. The wood being turned to produce bowls (Lignum Vitae) was disappearing at that time and the industry turned to Phenolic Thermoset to produce composition Bowls. To improve accuracy Drakes Pride invested heavily in state of the art machinery and in 1982 become the first bowls manufacturer in the world to use computer controlled lathes. This machinery together with diamond tipped tooling enabled the company to manufacture bowls more accurate and consistent than it's competitors.
