Waterside Bowling Club 

The Club is situated on the village of Holbury on the eastern side of the New Forest, approximately 11  miles south of junction 2 of the M27 on the A326 and a 40 minute drive from both Bournemouth and Portsmouth. (get directions).  

The Bowling Club is part of the Holbury Community Sports Association  and is set in some 15 acres which has large a parking area which can accommodate coaches.

The Club which has two greens and twelve rinks has played host to many visiting Clubs over the years, some local, some distant but all are assured a very warm welcome.

We are particularly popular at weekends due to the availability of our greens in relation to the Bournemouth and Portsmouth area Clubs who are perhaps tied up in league matches.  

We can therefore can offer a welcoming, convenient and friendly alternative, especially over the Bank Holiday periods. With the exception of Tuesdays and Thursdays (due to league commitments) we can offer availability on the remaining days by prior arrangement.

Please use the contact details within  our website to contact us if you would like to arrange a match or to visit us on your annual Tour.
