Bowls Season &
Social Events

During the Bowls Season April to September the Club is open daily 10am to late holding various activities and events - "Try Bowls", open days, club mornings for Ladies on Tuesday and Saturday, and Thursday evenings for Men.

There are League Matches every Thursday for Ladies, Saturday for Men, plus a mixed Triples League on Tuesday.

Members can enjoy the usual friendly "Roll ups", plus visiting touring club matches. There are also open competitions controlled by Hampshire County and Bournemouth and District B.A.

The Headquarters of the Bournemouth and District Bowling Association is and has for many years been incorporated at Richmond Park Bowls Club.

Social functions and special days are well organised by the Club Committee.

Throughout the season touring bowls clubs come to Richmond Park to play in mixed Friendly matches.

One such club was the Chelsea Pensioners Bowls Club. It was a privilege for us to meet and play against these wonderful retired soldiers and they very kindly invited us back to their beautiful grounds where we were treated to a lovely meal and a very competitive game of bowls.

Another such privilege was awarded to us by the Metropolitan Police (Mounted Police Horse division). Their bowl's club has frequently visited Richmond Park and they kindly invited us to play in a return match at Imber Court allowing us to visit the Police Horse Training Stables where we were thrilled to meet the beautiful police horses. Another visit was to Windsor Castle to play against the Royal Household.

So not only do we have the opportunity to play on our own lovely green we also have days out playing on other special greens and meeting fellow bowlers.

Richmond Park has County Badged players who are regularly selected to play for the County - so we are a very competitive club as well as being sociable.

Photos of Richmond Park Bowls Club Bournemouth

Our calendar is always full and as a member you can play as much or as little as you wish.

Social nights have included a 1940's night (see photos on right), musical evening and a steel band to name just a few. These have been accompanied by fish and chips or buffet meal. They have all proved to be great fun.

During the winter months we hold indoor events which include whist drives, military whist, darts, board games and short mat bowls - so you would never be short of things to enjoy. So why not come along to see us.
