The Association of Portishead Bowling Clubs would like to thank Professional Sport & Fitness

who are continuing their sponsorship for the 2024 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.

2023 Charities

Every year we support a charity from our events, raffles and, for the Men, various fines for indiscretions such as "wrong bias" and "wrong trousers".

For the 2023 season Ladies captain Liz Parker and president Sandra Daisley, have chosen Clevedon and District Foodbank CIO

and the Men's captain, Trevor Hodgetts, The Great Western Air Ambulance charity.

Clevedon and District Foodbank CIO covers Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead and the

surrounding towns and villages.

"Each food parcel provides 3 days emergency food to people in crisis. We also provide lunch

bags to children during the school holidays. Each lunch bag offers 1 weeks worth of

non-perishable food items to children who would normally receive free school meals (pupil premium). Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups,

working together towards stopping hunger in our local area."


Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (GWAAC) saves lives across Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and parts of Wiltshire.

"We provide emergency care to people who are in a state so critical that they require the specialist

skills of our team at the scene of the accident or medical incident. Though we are part of the

regional 999 response service and work closely with NHS hospitals, we are a charity entirely

funded by local people just like you."


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.
