About the Club

President’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Horley Bowling Club. We have been providing the opportunity to bowl in Horley and the surrounding areas for well over 100 years.

The club offers year-round activities, with lawn bowling in the summer and indoor (short mat) facilities in the winter. Both formats offer opportunities to play league matches, internal competitions, and friendly fixtures, as well as social bowling amongst members.

The club has a very enthusiastic social team who organize well-supported events throughout the year. We also offer social membership. So, if you feel like just sitting down and watching a game of bowls, you are very welcome to do so.

Play Bowls
If you would like to know more about the game of bowls in general, and Horley Bowling Club in particular, you will surely find something on our website to stir your interest. Contact us anytime, and we will provide you with the opportunity to try the game. Our qualified coaches will be on hand to support and guide you.

Whether you are young or old, an experienced bowler or a complete beginner, you will receive a warm and friendly welcome at Horley Bowling Club.

Steve Aylin-White, Club President
