Welcome

We are delighted you are taking the time to learn more about our friendly Bletchingley Bowling Club.

Proud record

Founded in 1929, we have a proud history of providing an excellent sporting facility for Bletchingley and the surrounding villages.

Bowling is fun and for all ages

We are a fun, friendly club where new members, both experienced & beginners, are welcome. Lawn Bowling is great fun and keeps your body, mind and soul fit and healthy. You can bowl competitively in our organised leagues & county matches.
