Getting ready for the new 2019 Season
Just over half way through the indoor Short Mat Season work is already well under way to plan next year's outdoor bowling season. Entries have already been submitted for National and County club competitions. Draft fixture lists are out for men's and women's local league games in 2019. We will have three men's and one women's teams in action in a season running from April to September. We are looking forward to hosting half a dozen friendlies, playing against visiting and touring teams and Pembroke Gardens will be running our two Open Tournaments in 2019 - the Open Fours in June and the Open Triples in July.
If you just want to turn up and bowl in a relaxed, informal style we have roll-ups every day. If you have not tried the game of bowls and want to have a go we are holding two"Come and Try" sessions on 20 and 27 April. We can provide a set of bowls and some basic tuition. We just ask you to wear flat shoes to help protect the bowling surface.
We also have a few social events planned including a trip to Goodwood Races, our own in-house horse racing fun evening and a Quiz Night. We must be one of the busiest clubs in Portsmouth. All games and events will be displayed under the Events Tab above once dates are confirmed.
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. Click 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 visit. So get in touch and we will look forward to welcoming you to our green.
