Frensham RBL Bowls Club
Frensham RBL Bowls Club is managed and operated on a voluntary basis by its members and is open from late April until late September. We are a mixed club and have a full calendar of friendly fixtures and also play in three local competitive leagues.
Within the club, internal competitions for individuals are played throughout the season. Our practise evenings are Mondays and Thursdays.
We give a warm welcome to all new members whatever your experience even if you have never played before but would love to give the game of bowls a try. We have several social fund raising events during the season which include a Quiz Night and an Annual Presentation Dinner. Throughout the year there are organised walks and outings and we participate in an indoor carpet bowls league on a Wednesday evening at Frensham Royal British Legion Club during the winter months.
