Coaching and New bowlers

Burghfield Bowls Club Open Days

Bowls is an easy sport to learn, and with our focused coaching program you could be playing in club matches within a few weeks. Every year several new bowlers find themselves playing in league matches in their first season. Others just play informal games with friends or join our regular Tuesday evening Ding Dong league.

Burghfield Bowls Club would like to invite you to one of our Open Days, where you can try the sport of Lawn Bowls for free and without any obligation:

Saturday 20th April
Monday 6th May
2:00pm – 5:00pm

These are open sessions for people to visit our green in James Lane (behind the BCSA) and try the game.  All you need do is bring along some flat shoes, as all other equipment is provided.

If you are unable to make either of these Open days, feel free to contact us at and we will arrange something to suit.

Bowls does not need excessive strength, speed or stamina, nor does it require an intensely competitive attitude. What Bowls does provide is moderate exercise in fresh air and in a sociable environment with moderate competitiveness that is ideal for both physical and mental health.

The club has a full fixture list for 2024, with friendly and league matches including men’s, ladies and mixed events. We also run internal club competitions and have a few ‘fun days’ as well as organising several social events, including skittles, barbecue, quiz nights and candlelit bowls.
