Everyone is welcome regardless of age or ability – come and have a go free of charge! Equipment will be provided. All you need are a pair of flat- soled shoes.
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 hardwork 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.

What a super turn out on Saturday morning. Everyone enjoyed the stalls and as always catching up with other members. There was a very generous donation by a lovely social member and on the day there was enough money raised in order for the Club to purchase a very important piece of equipment – a defibrillator. However a lot of thanks must be given to Gordon, who as a coach over the last few years has given up much of his own time to offering free coaching sessions to new members for a donation towards the purchase of this item.
Well done but let’s hope we never have to use it !
