Swanage Bowling Club
is a lawn bowls club based in Swanage Town Council’s Beach Gardens
, just off the seafront. Beach Gardens is also home to the Swanage Tennis Club and a popular 18 hole grass putting course. There is a shared Pavilion and the Club recently raised funds for a large translucent outdoor canopy to protect spectators from both rain and sun, under which they can enjoy the matches in more comfort. With views across the bay to the Isle of Wight, there is no better place to enjoy a game of bowls in good company!
The Club has played lawn bowls in Swanage since 1928 - and it is an important part of the sports and social activities within the town as well as a tourist attraction for visitors in the summer. There are six rinks, two of which are available to non-members to bring their own bowls or hire equipment from the Council booth.
My name is Ken Morgan and I have the honour of being President of the Swanage Bowling Club for 2019.
Our members can enjoy bowling in county leagues, friendlies with other clubs, competitions or just for fun. We also have many social events during the year including a Friday Club Night where anyone can come along to try a game of bowls and enjoy an evening with our friendly club members.
If you have never bowled before do not worry as we have trained coaches to help you. We start our season on 13th April so please come and visit us at Beach Gardens.
