Welcome Message from the Club’s President

Welcome to Babbacombe Bowling Club.  Thank you for visiting our website.
Whether you are just browsing,  interested in knowing more about our Club or the wonderful game of bowls, or your club may be searching for a suitable venue to play against, please contact us and I assure you that you will be made most welcome.
The past 24 months have been as difficult as most of us can remember, and  all at Babbacombe trust that a more positive future may soon be in sight.  We hope that the coming season will see a return to a new normality and we will renew old friendships and make many new ones.
Babbacombe is situated close to the sea, has several hotels of varying sizes, some of which boast the best sea views anywhere.  There are a  number of small shops, and a good bus service to neighbouring Torquay and Teignmouth.  There is adequate car and bus parking available close to the  Club.  We also believe we have one of the best greens in the area.
Should you require more information please contact us, at your earliest convenience.
I could continue to extol the many virtues, of both the area and the club, but please come and see  for yourself.
I hope we will soon be able to meet you and hopefully form a longlasting friendship.  I look forward to greeting you in person.
Gordon Nickerson  President Babbacombe Bowling Club
