Playing opportunities

Something for everyone in a busy programme. You can choose from our big and varied menu.


Either on your own or with one or more friends just have fun practicing or playing a casual game. Rinks for this purpose are available from 10am till dusk most days, when not booked for competitions or matches.

Regular fun games

Informal games are regularly organised on Monday and Friday Mornings from 10am to 12noon and on Thursday evenings from 6pm onwards. All are welcome, just turn up and play.


Throughout the season there is a programme of matches, either home or away, against other Sussex clubs. The majority are played on Wednesday or Weekend afternoons. These matches are a bit more competitive but are also social occasions enjoyed by near beginners as well as experienced bowlers.


On Tuesday evenings the Club puts teams into the Mid-Sussex and the John Spriggs Leagues for games at a somewhat more competitive level.

Club Competitions

The Club organises many competitions for members to enjoy ranging from the Ladies' and Men's Singles to Pairs and Triples in various forms including the Broomfield Cup designed for beginners.

National and County Competitions

Those members wishing to test themselves against bowlers from other clubs enter these competitions either on their own or with other club members.

Short Mat in the Winter

Very relaxed informal short mat games take place in the Pavilion during the winter on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. All are welcome, just turn up and play.
