Would you like to get involved?

Have you thought about playing Bowls? Enjoy the challenge, the camaraderie, meet new friends and take pleasure in the numerous activities the Portsmouth & District Bowls Association has to offer.

No matter what your age group, gender, competence or physical ability, Bowls can be enjoyed by everybody at any level.

If you are competitive by nature Bowls offers an intellectual challenge and the P&D's action packed calendar will keep you busy with numerous competitions and championships. Many of the available championships conclude at National level, so you might find you are the next mighty Oak to develop from an acorn sown on a Portsmouth green.

If it's the social side of the sport that appeals most then get involved with any of the clubs in the district, most of whom run friendly matches both internally and against other like-minded clubs strictly for enjoyment - one or two even have social clubs. You will always find somebody in a Bowls club who will happily introduce you to other members and get you started in the sport. So why wait?

Bowls really is a game for everybody. It is a great way to make new friends and wonderful way to spend time. The next step is simple - just choose a club or contact the P&D Secretary who will be only too happy to advise.

Bowls as a sport and the P&D as an organisation have a fascinating history. To learn a little more you might like to visit our history section.

We hope to see you very soon.
