Hallo and welcome to Babbacombe Bowling Club.
Our bowling club is a medium sized club with over 100 player members who play at all levels, whether it be National, League or occasional social games, plus a supporting social membership. The benefits enjoyed by all members are catering, bar facilities, quiz and whist nights.
Our fixture secretary is always pleased to hear from visiting clubs to play against while on tour. We can accommodate up to 7 rinks with the use of club facilities. The club is situated in a pleasant part of Torbay with several hotels in the near vicinity and ample parking in the roads around the club house.
We are always pleased to welcome anyone interested in bowls whether a player, beginner or spectator. You will be warmly welcomed and look forward to seeing you soon.

Saturday 9th November 2019 saw our annual Captain’s Charity Coffee Morning and which was well attended. There were various stalls including beautiful homemade items, cakes and a bottle tombola. We held two raffles – one for a fabulous Christmas stocking made by one of our lady members and the other usual bumper raffle with approximately 30 prizes. Thanks to everyone who made the event a successful one and for all the generous donations towards prizes. We are extremely pleased that we were able to raise £500 for The Torbay Eye Clinic which was this year’s charity and we were privileged to welcome the lady from the Eye Clinic to collect the cheque. Well done everyone !
With thanks to everyone, Marilyn Moodie and Keith Fursdon
