Welcome to the Friary Bowling Club.
The 2022 outdoor season has now finished, and the green is closed for its autumn maintenance. We will be re-opening for the 2023 season in mid April. Meanwhile we will be playing short mat bowls in the clubhouse from the beginning of October. Select our Short Mat page from the menu bar above for more details.
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.
