Welcome to Highworth Bowls Club

Thank you for visiting our website, hopefully it’s because you would like to know more about us, either as a newcomer to lawn green bowling, or perhaps as a bowler looking to join a local club.

New members are always welcome!

Our Club

HBC is a mixed lawn bowling club, established in 1936. Our six-rink green is one of the best in the area, and our roomy clubhouse and bar offer a friendly welcome and excellent facilities for our bowlers, social members, and guests.

Bowling and Social

Our bowlers compete in the Bowls Wiltshire and Swindon & District leagues as well as a full programme of friendly matches. But you don’t have to bowl to be a member of Highworth Bowls Club – Social membership is available, giving access to the bar and all club social events.
