Oxshott Bowling Club

We are delighted that you are looking at the Bowls Club section of the OVSC website and look forward to welcoming you to the club soon.

This year, 2020, Oxshott Bowls Club will be celebrating its Centenary Year and has a number of special events to mark the occasion.

Lawn Bowls, to give it its full name, is a sport for all regardless of age, sex or physical ability, and is one of the few sports that can truly be played on equal terms by almost anyone.   As a sport, it only takes a few minutes of tuition to learn the basics and be able to bowl.  It does however then take the rest of your bowling career to master it!

The Bowls Club is an integral part of the Oxshott Village Sports Club.  It is set in its own grounds adjacent to the main club, but with its own recently refurbished clubhouse and facilities.  The Club aims to provide its members with an attractive mixture of social and competitive sport.

Our season runs from mid-April through to the end of September.  The Club has over 50 local matches along with regular social bowls events on a Monday evening and a Friday afternoon, with rollups on a Tuesday and Thursday as well.  We also hold regular club drives, a BBQ and a Captain’s Day event.  In addition, our more experienced bowlers enter a wide number of external competitions.


As ever we are looking to recruit new members.  As an introduction to the sport, and to our club, we have arranged an Open Day followed by 4 coaching sessions:

Open Day:     Bank Holiday Friday 8 May 11am

Coaching 1:   Monday 11 May 5.30pm

Coaching 2:   Friday 15 May  1.30pm

Coaching 3:   Monday 18 May 5.30pm

Coaching 4:   Bank Holiday Monday 25 May 11am

All you need at this stage is a pair of flat shoes.

I do hope some of you are now interested in giving Bowls a try.  If you are, please contact Steve Ellis at oxshottbowls@gmail.com or tel: 07747 565379 as this will help with organising our Volunteers for the Open Day.   If you can’t make the Open Day, then please come along to any of the Coaching Sessions being held during May.
