North Tawton Bowling Club

We are located in North Street.  Our outdoor bowls season begins in late April and we close the green in mid-September.   We enter several leagues (Men’s, Ladies, and Mixed), and play ‘friendly’ matches around the county every week.  As a member you can choose to play as little or as much as suits you.

During the winter we offer short mat bowling in the clubhouse.

If you're looking for a chance to keep active and socialise with people in your community, then bowls is for you. 

Bowls is played for the challenge and competition, personal enjoyment, activity, and for social interaction.

Bowls is a great game for people of all ages: it keeps you active; helps improve muscle strength (arm, shoulder, leg muscles), flexibility and endurance; helps improve co-ordination and concentration and problem-solving skills; gets you out and about and meeting people.

Initially, for a ‘try it’ session, all you need is some flat soled shoes.  Spare bowls are available at the Club.   If you choose to join, membership for novice bowlers in their first year is ‘half-price’ at £35.00 per year for outdoor bowling and/or £15.00 for indoor short mat bowling.

When you begin to play matches you will need a club top.  When you become more involved you will want to buy your own bowls, clothing, waterproofs etc. 

To organise a ‘try it’ session:

Outdoors April -September call John on 07707 807136

Indoors October-March call Gordon on 01363 881414
