Welcome to the Club
With a history going back over 100 years, Thornbury Bowling Club is a beautiful marriage of tradition and the modern. With a community focus, we open our doors to young and old to enjoy our great facilities in the heart of Thornbury.
Our members offer a friendly welcome to both new and experienced bowlers, from barefoot bowling through to our pennant competition between September and March. We have one synthetic upper green suitable for year-round bowling, and our Tifdwarf Bermuda grass lower green. To add to the ambience, we also have extensive outdoor seating adjacent to our lower green together with large barbecues which are available for hire.
The clubhouse has catering facilities, dining area, lounge area and a well-stocked bar for our bowling and social members, visiting bowlers, spectators and guests. We welcome social groups, events, work functions and anyone who just wants to enjoy a summer afternoon at our bowls club.
