Chard Bowls Club


The Club offers high quality playing facilities and a friendly environment. The Club invites bowlers of all ages and experience (or none) to enjoy its facilities.  We are open to members, the public, and welcome the visually impaired and disabled.  The Club is run entirely by volunteer members.  We have six outdoor Lawn Green rinks which open in April until September and also two indoor Short Mats. There is a regular programme of league matches throughout the year on the Short Mat and during the summer months on the outdoor rinks.  Friendly matches are held both at home and away on both the short mat and the lawn green rinks.

Members have free use of the greens for practice, training etc.

The Umbrella is played on Tuesdays afternoon - 1.30pm for 2.00pm

Our Short Mat Bowls hall is the only permanent short mat hall in the area and is open all year round, 7 days a week from 9.00 am - 10.00 p.m.

Social Activities

The Club has a licensed bar, lounge and function room with events taking place throughout the year. These include quizzes, social evenings, bingo, plus hopefully a BBQ in the summer and Christmas meal.

In November each year a bowling weekend in Torquay gives members a chance to bowl against visiting teams and enjoy good food and entertainment.

Are you looking for good company and gentle exercise?  Why not give bowls a try?  Enjoy the sunshine and fresh air and beautiful views on our Lawn bowls green.  Relax after a game  and enjoy a refreshing drink from our bar.

Friday nights are club/training nights during the summer season.
