We consist of two clubs, men and ladies, both of which belong to The Association of Portishead Bowling Clubs. The Association runs and manages our beautiful site adjacent to the Lake Grounds in Portishead.
This site has two bowling greens each with its own recreation and changing facilities.
Club sessions take place every Monday throughout the bowls season starting at 10.00am. Old and new members participate in these on a regular basis and we are always assured of a good turnout.
Prospective new members or anyone interested in taking up Bowls will be welcome at these sessions and coaching is available for everyone interested in taking up the sport. If you think this might be you, please contact us to arrange a taster session.
Every year we support a charity from our events and raffles.
In 2019, Portishead Ladies won the Weston & District Triples League.
They donated their winnings of £220.00, along with a further £1,020.00 raised from club events, to their nominated charity of the year, the RNLI
Portishead Men 'A' won the Somerset Bowls League - North 2, only losing one match in the process!
Added to this there were various fines levied throughout the season (mainly for 'wrong bias', although there was one for 'wrong trousers'!), and the men raised a healthy £700.00, which was donated to their chosen charity, the Portishead Macular Society
For many years now the club has toured to other South Coast resorts, including; Torquay, Falmouth, Tenby, Bournemouth, Babbacombe, Exmouth, Bideford, Southsea and Weymouth.
Tours generally run from Monday to Friday in early September. We hire our own coach for the period of the tour.
Mixed games are arranged with local clubs around the area in which we are touring.
Each year money is raised for a Portishead charity, for example, in 2018 the club toured to Bournemouth and we donated to our local Great Western Air Ambulance Charity
