St John's (Meads) Bowling Club not only boasts spectacular views from their Green but enjoys the support of incredibly friendly members!

We are always looking for new members, of any age or ability, to join our inclusive and welcoming Club.  Our Coach is happy to work alongside complete beginners or more experienced players, thus enabling you to play at a level that suits your lifestyle. 

If lawn bowls appeals to you and you've always wanted to have a go, please get in touch via the link to Club Secretary or come to the Green and speak to one of us from the end of April.

Our next Taster Day will be 26th May 2024 but other taster dates can be arranged.

Come on down!  A very friendly welcome awaits you at  Helen Gardens.

Full club membership is £25 per annum; £5 for social membership. However, the green is owned by Eastbourne Borough Council and members are required to pay a fee to play.  It is recommended that members buy an annual season ticket, currently costing £120.
