Portishead Bowling Club welcomes bowlers of all ages and ability

2021 Season:

(for current news and events, please visit our Facebook page)


The 2021 Open Day (in association with the Bowls England "Big Bowls Weekend") on Bank Holiday Monday, May 31st was a great success.  We had many visitors eager to try their hand at bowls and learn more about the game in general.  The weather was fantastic and, with free refreshments thrown in, a great time was had by all.


Following on from the above, we had a Charity Morning & Lunch event on Monday June 7th.  This was very well supported by established members, new members and many of the prospective members from the above Open Day.  The weather was again in our favour and we all had a brilliant morning.  On top of that the Men & Ladies Clubs raised a marvellous £390 which will be split between their respective charities.  Well done to everyone involved.


The Association of Portishead Bowling Clubs would like to thank Britton Associates Wealth Management Ltd.

for their sponsorship of the 2021 season



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 the 2020 season the men supported St Peter's Hospice and the ladies, Children's Hospice South West

2021 Charities


The Portishead Youth Centre Mental Wellbeing project for young people 8+ years is the chosen Ladies President & Captains Charity for 2021. Young people can receive 6 weeks of 2 hours per week 1-2-1 mentoring under this project and also participate in activities at the Centre to support wellbeing.



Due to the 'lost' 2020 season, the Men's chosen charity for this

year is again St Peter's Hospice


Facilities

Our facilities are operated by the Association of Portishead Bowling Clubs with the purpose of enabling four local Portishead clubs to bowl in harmony on excellent greens and with a welcoming atmosphere. The main club house contains a bar and lounge with dining facility.


There are two 6 rink bowling greens both in very pleasant and enclosed surroundings with views to the Welsh coast.


The greens are maintained to a high standard providing an excellent bowling surface throughout the season.


We are pleased to welcome a number of touring sides throughout the season, and without exception, our visitors are very complimentary about the facilities we are able to share with them.


Disabled access and toilets are available for those requiring them.

Tours

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

Weymouth - 2016
