Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club
Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club

Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club is situated in the delightful Old Town area of Eastbourne. We are affiliated to Bowls England and Sussex County Bowls, and are supported by Eastbourne Borough Council.

The current membership comprises 50 full members (34 gents and 16 ladies), 17 associate members, plus four life memberships which are awarded for exceptional service rendered to the club. As we are a mixed club whenever possible our friendly matches against other clubs are played with mixed teams of ladies and gents.

We celebrated our centenary in 2010 and notable events that year included matches against a Bowls England side and matches against both the Men’s and Ladies Teams of Sussex County Bowls, as well as a memorable match against the Chelsea Pensioners.

We have a small but well equipped clubhouse which was completely rebuilt in 2000 with the aid of a lottery grant and much fundraising by members via bric-a-brac sales, boot fairs and club events. In 2013 we installed a watering system for the green and in 2014 we had a new equipment store and patio area built together with having the clubhouse kitchen extended to improve the facilities for the wonderful ladies who provide our refreshments throughout the year.

We are always delighted to welcome new members and offer a full calendar of friendly matches against other local clubs and touring sides, plus internal club competitions for all levels of skill. In addition, members compete in the local open competitions in Eastbourne and surrounding towns, in county competitions and in the Eastbourne Ladies League.

We offer a warm welcome to touring teams and our Match Secretary will be pleased to organise a match against us during your stay in the delightful town of Eastbourne.


Our Games Afternoons are in full swing every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm. Members, family and friends are welcome. Entrance is £2.50 which includes tea and cakes at half time.
