UPDATE: Please note that we are complying with government directives regarding COVID-19 and Bowls England. With the easing of some restrictions, this still means some activities are still cancelled until further notice, such as social events. Roll ups are now available and can be booked through Maggie Porter on Monday and Thursday evenings between  6pm - 9pm. Fixtures are listed up to June so far, please keep an eye on this as games may still be altered. As we go through the season, further games from July onwards will be added. Any further updates will be posted in the "News" section of this website. Thank you for your cooperation.


About the Bowls Club

All this time we have played in our idyllic setting, overlooked by Whitstable Castle and its glorious grounds, which merge seamlessly into the carefully tended gardens that surround our green.  Established in 1936, the club has now been here for 84 years. We are literally a stones throw from our wonderful seaside location.

We are delighted to welcome our guests and visitors into our well appointed clubhouse.

The town of Whitstable is renowned for good food and at our club we are proud to have built a reputation among visiting clubs for the quality of the refreshments we provide and the warmth of our hospitality. 

Whitstable has much to offer the tourist so many visiting clubs arrive early in the day to visit our town to sample our local delights before their game.

From late April to the end of September we have a very full bowling programme of matches against other clubs and internal competitions. Every Monday afternoon the men's section has an informal bowling session and the ladies do the same on Fridays. On the social side we run activities throughout the winter and every spring there's a bowling holiday to somewhere warm before the new season starts.

New members are our future and we welcome experienced bowlers and novices alike, we welcome all ages. To ensure those new to bowling don't sit on the sidelines we run a full tuition programme from our two qualified coaches, and it's free to people who go on to join the club. For anyone wanting to try bowling, please come to our Open Day which will be announced in 2021 when our two coaches will be on hand to show you the ropes and let you have a go.
