Lawn Bowls

Lawn Bowls was established in 2010 and initially was played indoors at King Georges Field on a monthly basis. During 2014 we became members of The Hook and Southborough Bowling Club and started playing weekly outdoors during the summer months. Since then we have continued to play on a fortnightly basis both indoor and out.
The club meets fortnightly for indoor bowling at the King George Field Indoor Bowls Club Chessington (October to April), and at Hook and Southborough Bowls Club Chessington (May to September).
We are happy to play friendly local matches, either home or away, with visually impaired or sighted teams.
