A message from the President


Welcome to Braeside Bowling Club.

We can offer all year bowling as we have an artificial surface, and all visitors will receive
a warm and friendly welcome. Come along and experience the joy of outdoor bowls.

Connie Phipps - President 2015

 Details of the Club
  • Braeside is one of the very few clubs in Hampshire and Dorset that can offer all      year round bowling on it's artificial surface.
  • We have a spacious and comfortable Club House with a fully equipped kitchen and         an excellent bar offering a wide range of drinks at very competitive prices.
 Bowling for Beginners
  • Even if you have never played bowls before, our qualified and experienced coaches      are always available with help and advice, they run initial coaching courses.
  • After a short while new members are encouraged to join our social bowling games, designed to improve bowling skills and provide an opportunity to meet other members.
 Further bowling Opportunities
  • To further develop bowling skills and to experience competitive bowling, the club arranges several "Friendly Matches" against other clubs. These matches are always played in a good spirit and are available to all club members.
  • It is hoped that as bowlers gain more experience they will be invited to play in our    full programme of "League Matches" against other local clubs.
  • Further bowling opportunities include "Day Trips" to clubs further afield and the occasional bowling holidays at home and abroad.
 Cost of Bowling
  • There is currently an annual subscription of £140 with no further playing charges   other than a joining fee of £45.
  • There is no need to initially purchase bowls or shoes as these would be provided on a free loan basis. In addition the club operates a facility for the purchasing of    secondhand bowling equipment from other members.
