Information Technology for HBC Members

We have five areas of ‘Information technology’.



Our main focus is our website where there is a wealth of information for all members, including our fixture list, competition results, and much more*. You will need a password for pages in the Members Area. You can access the website on smart phones, tablets & PC’s.


Our Facebook group is designed for social interaction (chit chat) for our members, and friends of the club. You need to be on Facebook already. Then, search Facebook for ‘Horley Bowling Club’, click on ‘Join Group’ and wait to be approved. You can get Facebook on smart phones, tablets & PC’s.

Signal (2 groups)

1. (HBC Free 4 All)

This is a general chit chat group

2. (URGENT Bowling Messages)

This is a ‘a group that is designed for members to post important [short notice] bowling alerts such as the closure of the green, an inter-club match cancellation, or a request for a marker for a singles match. One-to-one conversations are encouraged to avoid unnecessary alerts to members who do not need to be messaged. Unnecessary acknowledgements to alerts are similarly discouraged.
