Portchester Bowling Club was established in 1986. We have gained a reputation as a club that welcomes new and experienced bowlers and are known as “The Friendly Club”.
We have an all-weather outdoor green, which means our members can play throughout the whole year – playing in frost and snow is a challenge!

Summer Season - 1st April to 30th September

Seven teams represent the club in the Portsmouth & District and Gosport & Fareham leagues.
A variety of internal club competitions are held, including a Saturday Triples League which has proved to be very popular with all levels of players, and an ideal introduction to competitive bowling for beginners.

Winter Season - 1st October to 31st March

We play in a league with other local clubs with outdoor all-weather rinks.
Various internal club competitions also run through the Winter.

And even if there isn’t an organised roll up chances are there will be an informal one.

New Bowlers
Interested learners can enjoy three trial sessions under the guidance of our qualified team of coaches, after which they may apply to become members. Bowls are available to borrow.

Guest Bowlers
Guest bowlers are always welcome but they must be accompanied by a club member and can only play if there is spare capacity on the green. Appropriate rink fees will be payable.
