Hartec Design has your Bowls Club in mind...

Hartec designs websites based on templates developed originally for Bowls Cambridgeshire & Chesterton IBC and are now used by several UK Bowls Clubs and Associations.

CamBowls can provide you with an easier route into website ownership, by designing you a cut-down version of a Hartec site and hosting it on CamBowls' own domain. If your needs are still exacting, but you are looking for a cheaper option, please visit the CamBowls Directory.

In researching the original project it became apparent that very few clubs in the local area had a web presence. So my aim was to provide them with a means of achieving this, with a theme that could be configured with the club's identity and was readily updated, for a reasonable price.

With links to Facebook, Dropbox and Google Drive, the Hartec template has evolved to provide users with an easy means of updating content without having to come back to us every time a change is needed. If you are happy with a 'Word' or 'Excel' document, you will be able to update the News, Officers, Diary and Info pages for example.

TournamentMaster128 is a neat program that appeals to Competition Secretaries, as it takes the pain out of generating Competition draws. TM128 is available exclusively for Hartec websites and links seamlessly into them.  Being Google documents they are readily updated as the results come in and keep members informed of draw progress, almost as soon as each round is played.

Leagues can also be catered for, with the help of League Republic. These do require a modicum of PC literacy, but a number of our Bowls Associations use them successfully.

With memberships reducing, Bowls Clubs and Associations need to promote themselves through modern communications channels, with a web site and with links to social media. With a Hartec or CamBowls site, your club can achieve this at a reasonable price and with the minimum of hassle.

I look forward your initial enquiry and in working with you to get your club or organisation on the web, promoting it to a wider audience.
