Folland Bowling Club was established in 1949 by Mr H.P.Folland who was. at the time, Head of Folland Aircraft Company.He was a philanthropic owner who was keen to provide sports facilities for his employees, encouraging them to keep fit. It has been in continuous use since it's inception and is now a friendly Club that is maintained by it's members.The Volunteer 'Greenkeepers' are proud of the bowling surface they provide for the bowling season which requires considerable work all year through. The Club and Pavilion are constantly being improved by many members who take great pride in their Club.
.The Club has three Men's teams and two Ladies teams who compete in The Southampton & District Bowls Association Leagues. Members also play in Club competitions for both Ladies and Men. However it's not all competitions, we have Sunday morning Mufties, Fancy dress days and Bar B Ques, plus of course Presidents Day, the theme of which is chosen by the current President. We also play friendly games against other Clubs and on Wednesdays we have veterans matches against other local Clubs.You can of course use the Green for practice or friendly 'roll ups' We meet during the closed season for social evenings in order to keep in touch.
We welcome all ages and genders as new Members by offering free coaching on Monday evenings during the season, and Membership is hugely reduced to just £10 for Novice Bowlers during their first year!!!
