Welcome Message from the Club’s President

Welcome to Babbacombe Bowling  Club. I am delighted you are visiting our web page and hopefully we can meet up over the next year to bowl against you.
Our Club is a happy club, we bowl seriously at all levels, but we really enjoy meeting others who hopefully are of a like mind.
Babbacombe Bowling Club is on the outskirts of  Torquay, with many hotels available for your needs. Our green is in a village like setting and is idyllic for friendly companionship.  Ample car parking is available on surrounding roads, together with bus parking facilities if needed.
As a Club we offer all usual facilities, including the all important bar!
Our Fixture Secretary will do his utmost to meet your needs.  Should you like what you see, please contact us and we in turn will do our best to accommodate you and make you most welcome and hopefully encourage you to return, as many visiting clubs do.
Yours in sport
Gordon Nickerson

Our Green Team works hard all year to ensure that our green is ready for action during the season that runs from April to September. From October to March we roll out our Club’s indoor shortmat. Our Club caters for all needs and there are leagues and competitions to enter if you wish to be competitive or, due to the hard work of our Fixtures Secretary, there are friendly and touring matches that appeal to the less competitive. You may even just want to have the odd roll-up with other members during the week. Bowls is a great way to keep fit and socialise while playing a sport you enjoy. Come and see for yourself what is happening at our great Club. If you have any questions please contact us by telephone or email. From 1st May to 31st August, a member is on duty to assist new and interested bowlers Monday to Friday 10am to 1pm and the Club coach is always happy to assist you. There is a warm and friendly welcome awaiting anyone who wishes to visit Babbacombe Bowling Club. Whether you are interested in playing bowls or just watching please feel free to pop in and see us

About our Club

Bowlers have been enjoying their sport on the greens at Babbacombe Bowling Club for over 120 years. We are a friendly club and always extend a warm welcome to players and the general public alike.

Babbacombe Bowling Club plays outdoor bowls, with some indoor matches during the winter, and a short mat season in the clubhouse in the winter.

We welcome new members (both full and social), tours, friendly matches and competitive league players.
