Welcome to the Website of The West Sussex Bowls Touring Club. Famous not only for their ability at this great game of Bowls but also for the camaraderie and fun that they play the game with. A club with no home of their own but known on bowling greens throughout West Sussex and the South of England. Very much a club that when you join you feel that it’s the start of an adventure. An adventure for most that lasts many years.
In May 2020 the club were due to make a return visit to Exmouth staying once again at The Manor Hotel on their 66th annual tour since it’s founding back in 1955. The Coronavirus Pandemic put paid to the tour halting the clubs proud record of touring each year since formation. The Pandemic still ongoing in 2021 and the vaccine rollout not coming in time for us we had no alternative but to cancel our 2021 tour to Paignton as well. Thankfully in 2022 the club got back to touring our 66th annual tour being in Torquay (The TLH Carlton Hotel). In 2024 we will be based at The Red Lea Hotel in Scarborough, please see the ‘fixtures’ page to see who we will be playing against.
Our members are drawn from clubs (both outdoor and indoor) from throughout West Sussex and once ‘with us’ they find themselves on a journey that often lasts for many years. Have a glance at our ‘membership’ section and see just how many years that some of us have put into this wonderful club.
Our membership is almost always ‘full up’ and the club regularly has a waiting list to join (let alone get to go on a tour). We are proud that gentlemen bowlers throughout West Sussex want to join us and even prouder that they want to stay for so long.
If you just ‘happened to find us’ whilst surfing the web please feel free to have a look round. Save us to your ‘Favourites’ and come back and see us again soon.
