Friary Bowling Club


The Friary Bowling Club is in a truly delightful setting not far from the city centre. The club was established in the 19th century and welcomes both men and women.

The 2018 season is now underway and the green is playing well. We have again entered teams in a number of the local leagues as well as arranged friendly matches with other local clubs. Our own club competitions, which offer opportunities to compete at all levels, will soon be starting. Friendlies between members are held on Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings, and at other times by arrangement.

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.  You are also very welcome to come along to one of our taster sessions.  Details are on our taster sessions page.

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.
