We welcome new members and visitors. All ages and abilities will feel at home with us.

We are a social and friendly club located on the outskirts of Horsham with ample free parking and excellent facilities, including 8 indoor rinks (two of which are available to the public), fully licenced bar, freshly prepared homecooked food and always a warm welcome.

Our Club was formed early in 1995 and took over management of the Indoor Bowls Centre, which was provided by Horsham District Council, in October of that year. The centre, which has a total of 8 rinks, is one of the finest indoor bowls facilities in the county. The club is proud of its' friendly atmosphere, it has members at every level of play, and has built up a very good reputation.

Short Mat Bowls has recently been introduced into the club to cater for those who enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere. Two mats are available.

Benefits available to full members include free tuition for beginners, free coaching for those wishing to improve their game and friendly roll up play, drives and organised events. Club competitions; friendly matches against other clubs; league matches against other Sussex clubs; county and national competitions. Full members also join with our social members in the use of the Members Bar and the 90 seat restaurant, social events and weekly bridge nights.

We also have regular Open Days and Evenings.

Super 4 By 4’s

This is an exciting new and very different event being organised for February 29th 2020.  

Teams will consist of 4 players, mixed with at least one lady or gent, preferably 2 ladies and 2 gents.

There will be 3 rounds of 6 ends and play will be on the basis of one game on and one game off.

Your team score will be paired with another team - randomly selected in each round - with your scores being added together and allocated to both teams - so, you’ll be wanting to cheer on your ‘paired team’ to help increase your score!!

There will be prize money of £60 for the winners and £40 for the runners up.

Entry form is available here:



The Wednesday evening session is becoming even more popular. If you are at a loose end on a Wednesday evening, or just fancy meeting others for a game, why not come along for a sociable evening of bowls. The dress code is casual and the bar is open.

It’s just £3.50 for the session which starts at 18:45 for 19:00.

Friends & family non-members can enjoy 2 free “taster” sessions, and coaching is available.
