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.
My name is Brian Beeston and it is an honour and privilege to serve as President to Swanage Bowling Club.
I am 84 years old and have been a member of the Club for 20 years.
My charity for 2023 is Swanage Hospital and I hope that people will be able to give generously to such an important local cause.
I wish the Club every success in 2023, so let’s show what we can do and win, win, win!
