Sir Francis Drake famously prepared to defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588 by having a game of bowls at his local Plymouth Hoe club.   Established in 1990 Burpham Bowling Club isn't quite that old but you can still have a relaxed game of bowls at this mixed club, one of the largest the Guildford area. New members from beginner to experienced are always welcome.  


We have our own clubhouse, with licensed bar, plus access to the amenities pavilion of Sutherland Memorial Park and free parking at weekends (up to 5 hours weekdays).  Our green is looked after by Guildford Borough Council and is one of the best maintained in the area.


Our season runs from April to September.  We take part in a variety of competitions at regional, county and national levels.  We also have an extensive programme of mixed league and friendly matches against other clubs in the area.  And there are programmes of mens and ladies matches.  

We also have a programme of internal club competitions every year, and casual club matches (i.e. roll-ups) when members can simply turn up for a friendly game of bowls in the company of other club members.  

Membership is available to playing and social members and we have a very active social programme in the clubhouse throughout the winter months.  We have good links with the local community - for more information see the About Us section.


If you'd like to try bowls we can help you to get started and quickly enjoy bowling at Burpham Bowling Club.  Free tuition is available to new bowlers from our in-house qualified coaches.  You can also join as a social member.


You are very welcome to browse the website and visit the club.  If bowls was a good enough game for Sir Francis Drake.....???
