Welcome to Winslow Bowls Club

Winslow Bowls Club is a friendly and social club, full of people looking to have fun and enjoy sporting activity together. We are based right in the centre of Winslow with free parking and surrounded by the beautiful Tomkins Park and Arboretum. Our green has been refurbished to a high level and the summer season will be in full swing from the middle of April right through until late September. We also play a Short Mat form of bowls in our clubhouse during the winter.

We believe everybody should realize the joy and benefit of playing sport, and there are so many reasons why bowls is ideally placed to unlock these fantastic advantages. Bowls is a sport for everyone and it will help improve your fitness levels and mental well-being. It is a low impact yet competitive sport played in a very social atmosphere, giving plenty of opportunity for gentle exercise throughout the summer months.

Winslow Bowls Club provides an historic sporting activity in the centre of the town for all ages and skill levels.

The Clubhouse and Bowling Green are maintained on a day to day basis by the Members of the Club.

The Clubhouse is available for hire and is currently used regularly by NHS, WADAS, Breath Easy, Big Society and other local organisations.
