Welcome to the Friary Bowling Club.
The 2023 outdoor bowling season is now almost finished. The green will close for play after our Closing Day on Saturday 23rd September to allow the green maintenance team to carry out the annual maintenance programme before the winter. The green will re-open for the 2024 season in mid-April.
Through the winter months we will again be running Short-Mat Bowling sessions in the clubhouse. More details can be found on our Short-Mat Bowls page.
The Friary Bowling Club is in a delightful setting not far from the city centre. The club was established in the 19th century and welcomes both men and women.
If you would like to join a small, friendly club with plenty of activity why not use our contact page to send us your details. Our membership secretary will be only too pleased to give you more information.
It doesn't matter whether you have never played before or are an experienced bowler, you will be very welcome. Every assistance and encouragement is given to beginners.
For the convenience of members and visitors we have parking permits for use in the surrounding roads. They are available at the clubhouse.
