New Members

The club has a modern pavilion, six outdoor bowling rinks and ample car parking for members and visiting clubs. The green is maintained by the members allowing the club to enjoy a low annual membership fee of £30.

The club offers lawn bowls for all standards of play from April to September. Our membership, of over 70, ranges from the youngest at 14 to several in their 80s and beyond. Members can play socially with club organised games and competitions. Many members compete in mixed, men’s and ladies’ matches against other clubs in the local area and in the Dover League. Some members compete in County and open tournaments.

New members of any standard are always welcome. The club has five qualified coaches and offers new bowlers free coaching sessions using club equipment. Youngsters over the age of 10 are encouraged to try their hand at bowling. The club has sets of bowls suitable for juniors that can be borrowed. All you need to supply is a pair of flat soled shoes.

During the closed winter season short mat bowling is available on most days in the pavilion. The short mat section also offers all standards of play from social games and club competitions to very competitive East Kent league matches. Beginners only need to bring flat soled shoes to enjoy short mat bowling.

The club offers regular social events during the year including bingo, quiz nights, treasure hunts and whist & scrabble evenings. A gentle weekly exercise class is also available. Bowling holidays are enjoyed by some members

All of our members love the game and many say that they have formed true friendships.  It is a very pleasant way of meeting many new like minded people. 

You can be sure that you will be made most welcome should you consider having a go.
