Welcome to Pembroke Gardens Bowling Club......

to all our members, friends and visitors. Now in November, the green is closed for the autumn maintenance program - putting the green "to bed" for the autumn and winter.

But we are now playing indoors with two NEW short mats in place allowing us to keep the Club open and active through the autumn and winter. We are averaging a dozen or so players for each session so for members and prospective members, come along on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons or Sunday morning. You will soon find a friendly face to help you along.

Take a look at the Club news Tab for news of our new P&D Champion of Champions and an update on our charity activities in the last couple of months...

Coronavirus Update - From Monday19 July we are not required to enforce any Covid restrictions by law but we will continue to exercise caution and respect people's personal choices regarding masks, social distancing and their own well-being.

About the Club

We are a mixed Club, normally playing social bowls on the outdoor green every day of the week in the summer in addition to lots of competitive bowling. We run three Men's Teams and one Women's team in local Portsmouth and District Leagues. We host half a dozen friendlies (usually touring teams), run two Tournaments, 5 social events like evening quizzes and horse racing and dozens of internal Club Competitions. We like to claim there is "something for everyone" whatever your bowling experience or skill level.

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.
