Try Bowls

Tonbridge Bowling Club -Have a go at Bowls.

Tonbridge Bowling Club is situated in a rural setting next to open country and sports fields. Our modern clubhouse is equipped with toilets, changing rooms, kitchen, bar and we have extensive car parking. We run a full program of competitive and social bowling throughout the year, new members are always welcome, and we run weekly taster sessions for both lawn and short mat bowls according to the season. Please contact us via our Contact us page.

When is the Club Open? The outdoor bowling season runs from late April to end September.

However Tonbridge Bowling Club continues to function during the winter.  
Short Mat bowls is available in the clubhouse, on afternoons and evenings each week. There is at least two social events per month during the winter (usually on Saturday evenings). A Dinner/Dance is held annually at the end of the season.


Many people having seen bowls competitions on TV, or maybe having stopped to watch a game in progress in their local park have at some time thought , “I wouldn’t mind giving that a try”.
Probably the number one reason you haven’t tried bowls yet is that it is considered by those not involved in the game to be a sport for the older folk. Bowls IS a great pastime for many older people, but it is also a great sport for all, including younger folk. The under 25 scene is flourishing both at County, National and International level, but for those of you just that bit older, it is a terrific way to keep your competitive spirit going when your more active days in cricket, football or tennis are coming to an end.
