Welcome to the Marden Bowls Club website – we hope you find it interesting and informative. Situated in Marden village, in the Weald of Kent, our club offers outdoor and indoor bowling, and we welcome both bowling and social members.

Bowling at Marden

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.
