A warm welcome to the Pembroke Gardens Bowling Club website to all our members, friends and visitors.  

Coronavirus Update - The Club is following the advice of Bowls England and our local Portsmouth Bowls Associations so all you see scheduled to take place at the Club in 2020 will not happen. However, for the time being, I have left all the planned events, games and tournaments on the website as a reminder of what we can look forward to when the coronavirus is behind us. We will be back!

Here we are in March, wondering if the procession of wind, rain and storms in February is at an end! The green-keeper is working away to ensure that the green is ready for Opening Day on Saturday 11 April, ready for a busy summer of bowling and social activities.

We are a mixed Club, playing social bowls on our outdoor green on every day of the week in addition to lots of competitive bowling. We have entered three Men's Teams and one Women's team in local Portsmouth and District Leagues. There will be games against 5 touring teams, two Tournaments, 5 social events and dozens of internal Club Competitions. We like to claim there is "something for everyone" whatever your bowling experience or skill level.

If you are completely new to bowls and want to find out more, come and have a go. 

We have arranged 2 "Come and Try" days on 18 and 25 April. Make sure you wear flat shoes and come along. We will provide some bowls and basic tuition and answer any questions over a tea or coffee.

Just click on the Events tab above to see a full diary of all games and events.


Our Women's Section enjoyed a really good season last year but we are keen to attract a few more ladies to come and join in. Click on the Club News tab to see what they have achieved on the bowling green during the 2019 season.

We are a friendly Club with a busy schedule of activities during the summer but it doesn't end there. The Club has two indoor mats where we play Short Mat bowls from the end of September through to April. Subscriptions are just 90 for a full season of bowling. So come in and meet us - find out what we can offer and join in the fun!

And just look at the photograph below to see where we are situated. Come and enjoy "Bowling by the Sea" in Portsmouth.

Touring Teams

If you are a touring team looking for a fixture on the South Coast just look at what Pembroke Gardens BC can offer. Six rinks (seven at a squeeze), a spacious clubhouse with ample room to seat over 50 people, a small but well-stocked bar and a warm welcome. Just click once on the About Us Tab above to see a map.

There are lots of hotels to choose from, other bowling clubs in and around Portsmouth and there is plenty for the non-bowlers to do. The Portsmouth Historic Dockyard with the new Mary Rose museum, HMS Victory and the Submarine museum are just a few minutes away. Boat trips around the harbour, the Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Quays for shopping or even a trip to the Isle of Wight, are all waiting for you to come and enjoy. So get in touch and we will look forward to welcoming you to our green.
