About Us

Speldhurst Bowls Club was founded in 1920 and has many years of enjoyable bowling against other clubs in the local area.

The Club has a small four rink green, we play friendly matches (both home and away) against other Kent and Sussex clubs on most weekends during the season. Please see the fixtures page for more information.

The club has a team entered in the Tunbridge Wells men’s triples league which is played on a Thursday evening, we come up against some of the strongest players in the county.

As well as our fixtures we enjoy each other’s company at several club functions throughout the year including a pre-season enrolment evening, a Christmas dinner/presentation evening and a summer club tournament.

We do of course like to encourage playing members, but happily provide social membership for non-players.

After the summer outdoor season has ended, there are also local facilities for indoor and short mat bowls if you wish to continue with your game!

Our History

Speldhurst Bowls Club was founded in 1920 by Lord Dannatt who had a keen interest. It is believed that our very first game was against Groombridge.

The Bowls Green was originally to be found near the Cricket pitch in Rusthall but was moved to the Speldhurst Recreation ground where it has remained for many many years.
