We are a friendly mixed club, committed to developing and supporting the enjoyment of social and competitive bowls in equal measure on the outdoor green every day of the week in the summer. We run three Men's Teams and one Women's team in the local Portsmouth and District Leagues. We host friendlies (usually touring teams), run tournaments, 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 have 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. Join us to relax, keep fit, feel good about yourself, enjoy friendly competition, make new friends and become part of our community. 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 as well as the D Day Story 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.
