With health & safety our priority, Covid-19 rules are in place and our Club is open and ready for the outdoor bowling season.
We look forward to welcoming our returning and new members. Whether you are a new or an experienced player, our Club has the game for you.
Marilyn Moodie, General Secretary
for the Management Committee
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

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 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
