Welcome to the Friary Bowling Club.  

The 2023 bowling season is rapidly approaching.  Our green maintenance team have been working hard to prepare the green for play and it is looking very good.  Opening day is on Saturday 15th April.  You can see full details of this year's activities by selecting the Fixtures and Events link in the menu bar above.

If you are new to bowling and would like to give it a try in an informal and friendly atmosphere, why not sign up for our free introductory sessions; for details select the Free Bowls Sessions link in the menu bar..


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.
