Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club
Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club

Motcombe Gardens Bowls Club was formed in 1910 and is situated in the delightful Old Town area of Eastbourne in the lovely little park called Motcombe Gardens. We are affiliated to Bowls England and Sussex County Bowls, supported by Eastbourne Borough Council, and sponsored by Experium Financial Services, Mark Bishop Ltd and JWD Enterprises.

The current membership comprises 56 full members (34 gents and 22 ladies), 18 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 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 more recently 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 and Men's Leagues.

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.

With the bowling season over we will be concentrating on social events. For example,  we meet every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm at the Club to play games. Entry is £2.50 which includes tea and cakes at half time. Every 5 weeks or so there will be a Friday Night Social e.g. a Quiz, Bingo or a Whist Drive,  with a meal such as Pie and Mash. Details will be emailed to members but you can find the dates on the Calendar Page. Also look out for details of trips to play Ten Pin Bowling and Curling. Details of the next Social are on the News Page.
