Welcome to our Club

By being named ‘National Club of the Year’ in 2015 by the governing body Bowls England we have been recognised as one of the best Bowls Clubs in England.

We are a lawn green bowling club based in central Berkhamsted, providing a highly popular and skilful game for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

  • We are located in a beautiful and vibrant setting close to the town high street with the Grand Union Canal and open park area providing an idyllic backdrop.
  • Our playing season runs from late April to late September and currently provides outdoor sport and leisure to 120 members with a social programme running indoors throughout the winter months in our spacious clubhouse.
  • We welcome any member of the public to come in and have a go at various times throughout the season and also offer hugely reduced fees to new members.
  • Whether it’s enjoying a drink and a friendly game or playing good competitive bowls through to national standard you can have them both.

We encourage all ages, abilities and sexes to come and play, try our new equipment, meet our friendly members and enjoy a new experience.

It’s a perfect game for sharing with others, making new friends and helping to improve your health.
