At Forest Hill Bowling Club we play Lawn Bowls. The club was formed

in 1894 and has been at its present location since 1910. The history of the club, written for our Centenary celebration in 1994, can be found here. We will be celebrating our 125 Anniversary this year 2019.

The club is situated in its own pleasant grounds including gardens, a small wood and its own large car park.  The playing green and gardens are maintained by the members. There is a large comfortable clubhouse that houses a well stocked bar, changing rooms, a large club room and a fully fitted kitchen used for catering club events.

We are a friendly club catering for bowls players, and potential players, of all ages and abilities, and new members are always welcome. If you have never played before, or wish to learn more about the game, pay us a visit and let us give you a taste of what is on offer. Coaching is available for beginners from our two EBCS (English Bowls Coaching Association) accredited coaches.
