The home of Lawn Bowls in central Guildford

Welcome to Castle Green Bowling Club

The bowling green at Guildford Castle is now closed for the winter.

We have enjoyed an amazing season despite COVID restrictions. Most of the club competitions have been run and we enjoyed a late season Short Jack Handicap competition that was a huge success.

A huge thanks to our greenkeepers who produced one of the best greens we have played on in recent years, so thanks David and David.


We shall be assessing the COVID-19 situation next year in early April 2021 in order to be fuly prepared for any rules we have to follow to keep our bowlers all safe.


We are lucky to play on a green situated in Guildford's beautiful and award winning Castle Grounds, as the bowling green attracts many hundreds of visitors every year from all over the world.

Bowling in this wonderful setting epitomises a scene that is typically British, especially when accompanied by a brass band on the nearby bandstand.

Our club is affiliated to EBA, SCBA, WSBA, & EWBA.

Anyone joining the club is assured a warm welcome, whether they are expeienced bowlers or wishing to try their hand at this wonderful game.
