Bowling at Marden

In Summer we enjoy a range of casual, friendly and competitive matches. We host short mat bowls in Winter, along with social events throughout the year.

Our outdoor summer season runs from late April until mid-September, with regular casual bowling sessions, friendly matches against local clubs, and various league matches. In winter, our clubhouse becomes a two-rink short mat bowling facility, and we hold various social events throughout the year.
