Welcome to Ampthill Bowls Club

Welcome to the Ampthill Bowls Club website.  Here you should be able to find out everything you need to know about the club, and perhaps a little bit more!

Bowls is a unique game that can be played by people of any age.  It is a very sociable sport that can be both fun and challenging.  It is also one of the few sports where a 70 year old can play a competitive game against a 10 year old, without the need for a handicapping system.

Our friendly club, with clubhouse, bar and outdoor patio areas, is set in attractive and tranquil surroundings, accessed through the acclaimed Kings Arms Path Gardens.  There surely isn’t a more pleasant spot in Ampthill on a summer’s day or evening.

Our outdoor season runs from April to September, during which time a variety of matches and competitions are run both internally and against other local clubs.  After most matches, refreshments are provided offering additional opportunities to socialise with your team members and opponents in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.  Our licensed bar also offers a wide range of drinks at very attractive prices!  We are extending our Social Calender and hope to put on an event every month giving everyone the opportunity to relax and catch up and have a bit of fun.  We are also hoping to have an afternoon club, which we are calling the CAMEO Club (Come And Meet Everyone), where we will hold hobby and interest activities, Afternoon Teas, Bingo and lots more, again an opportunity to get together and enjoy each others company. 

New members are always welcome and anyone interested should get in touch by completing the Contact Form on the ‘Contact Us’ page or by email to

 We offer several ‘Taster Sessions’ throughout the season, where anybody can come and have-a-go at bowls.  These are a great way to find out more about us and for you to see what fun the game can be.

Taster dates 2023 are 4th May and 21st May.

We are also proud to have two qualified coaches who are members of the club who will provide coaching sessions to new and existing members free of charge.

A number of our bowlers have appeared in the Bowls England Finals, held each year at Leamington Spa and have also won various other competitions at County level.

Whether you are interested in taking up the game of bowls, socially or competitively, or would just like to be a spectator, we look forward to seeing you soon!
