New Milton Bowling Club

   CLICK HERE to contact The Club Secretary

Our club has two bowling greens, regular social bowling sessions, runs internal competitions and has a program of ‘Friendly’ matches against other clubs, often sides touring in the area, in addition to having teams in the men’s and women’s leagues run by the Bournemouth & District and New Forest Bowling Associations.         

 “Bowls?   It’s an old man’s game.”    That summarises the first thoughts of most people when bowls is mentioned.     But, are they right?. “Bowls   - is a young man’s game that old men can still play.”    That is a far more accurate description of the sport.    Moreover you can substitute ‘man’ with ‘woman’ because bowls is one of the few sports where men and women can play on an equal footing, and together.    Bowls is often now a second sport for many people and others take it up when they are no longer able to play in contact, or high speed, games.   Some people turn to bowls on their retirement.  For many it still supplies the competitive edge that they had in other sports.
