Welcome to Westbrook Bowls Club. This friendly lawn bowls club is located on the coast by Westbrook Bay about 1 mile from Margate beach. We are lucky to have a lovely setting for our club and on a summer day there is nowhere better.

Westbrook Bowls Club, which is managed and operated by its members, was formed in 1935 and is affiliated to Bowls England and KCBA (Kent County Bowls Association) and offers a warm welcome to new members of all genders, ages and experience.

The club, which has 6 rinks, is leased from Thanet District Council who owns the freehold.  In 2015 we applied for, and were granted, planning permission to extend the club house and with the help of a grant from Sports England and The Lottery Fund the club house was extended in 2016 which allowed us to offer sports activities during the winter when outside bowls cannot be played.  The grant also enabled us to repave the front of the clubhouse and resurface around the green.

The outdoor bowls season runs from the end of April until the end of September and the club play friendly and league matches. Throughout the season we have roll-ups known as Umbrella’s on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon commencing at 2.00 pm

For beginners our club coach offers coaching sessions on a Monday afternoon commencing at 2.00 pm. The first three sessions are free

We are a mixed Club and play men's, ladies' and mixed friendly and competitive matches with clubs in the surrounding areas. In addition to these matches the club also run in house competitions which are played throughout the bowls season with the finals being played over a weekend mid September. 

During the year we also hold fun days and charity days and these are noted on the notice board.  We have also hosted Brownie/Scout groups to introduce them to the game and are happy to host for other institutions as well so if you belong to any other social clubs and bowls might be of interest let us know and we can organise a taster session.

Also during the winter the club is open for table tennis, carpet bowls, darts and cards.  Details of what days these activities will take place are posted on the notice board at the end of the season.

We have a welcome pack that describes the Club activities and facilities in more detail.
