Welcome to Bideford Bowling Club


We are looking forward to the 2022 bowling season with hopefully a normal fixture list.  

This will be updated as soon as fixtures have been confirmed.


Have you ever thought about playing Lawn Bowls?  We will be holding open days in April 2022 so that you can come along and give it a try for FREE.  Who knows you may actually enjoy it and want to join our club.  

We have great facilities at our club and look forward to new members. There is no age limit.             



We look forward to seeing you in 2022.

Bideford Bowling Club was founded in 1889. It has been located adjacent to The Strand, Bideford since the early thirties and is now known colloquially as ‘Bideford Strand Bowling Club’.  It is owned by the members and has been a mixed club since 1997.

The clubhouse was rebuilt in 1993 and has a seating capacity for over seventy. It has a modern kitchen and fully stocked bar. The green is acknowledged to be amongst Devon’s best.

A tour in June is arranged most years and a tournament is held each year in early August.

Throughout the outdoor bowling season the club has a very busy schedule. Games at Club, County and National level ensure that members have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive selection of home and away games, ranging from friendly to competitive.

Short mat bowling is available during the winter months for present and approved past outdoor bowling members.

We give a high priority to ensuring that all our visitors are given a warm welcome and an enjoyable time whilst with us.

New members are always assured of a friendly welcome. Experienced bowlers and those new to the game will be given every assistance to ensure that they obtain the maximum benefits from the activities in which they choose to participate.

Social events are arranged throughout the year.
