About Our Club
Chardstock Bowling Club was established in 1957 on the site of an old quarry.
We are a small but friendly club, catering for players of all ages, men and women, experienced or new to the game, playing in one of the most beautiful settings in Devon. All our members get chances to play and develop their game.
We offer outdoor bowling on a five rink, lawn bowling green which is used from mid-April to mid-September. During the winter (October - March), Chardstock Bowling Club participate in indoor friendly matches. These all take place away at clubs in Devon (Budleigh Salterton, Honiton, Madeira, Sidmouth), Dorset (Bridport) and Somerset (Ilminster, Taunton Vivary, Yeovil).
Our club has three qualified coaches who runs coaching sessions for new members, helping them to learn how to bowl. These sessions are free. For further information about the introduction and coaching sessions, click on "An Invitation to Join Us"
