Riverside Indoor Bowling

About Us

Our Club is situated just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Winchester. Following a great deal of hard work and planning, with the help of dedicated members, local outdoor Clubs, the local Council and lottery funding the Club moved to it’s present site in 1997 and started with over 400 members.

The Club employs a Centre Manager and with a team of dedicated stewards we all work together to make sure the Club and its facilities are running smoothly.

Bowls is a sport that everyone can enjoy at all ages and new members are encouraged to join all the activities we provide.

“Friendly Matches” with visiting Clubs are held on selected week days and most weekends throughout the season which gives all our members the opportunity to make new friends.

The Club runs an internal league program during the winter months and has a Summer League for those bowlers that do not wish to play outdoors. In addition, the Club runs internal competitions and our members are encouraged to enter the Hampshire and National Competition program.


The Club is well equipped and the facilities include:

   • Six indoor rinks.
   • Bar and restaurant.
   • Spacious lounge area.
   • Good access and equipment for anyone with a disability
     and a Swan Bowlers Club for those that need assistance -
     wheel chairs are available.
   • Coaching for all bowlers.
   • Social membership.
   • Car parking facilities.

We are a friendly Club which offers facilities for everyone, whether you are an experienced bowler or new to the sport. You can join as a Social Member and enjoy the facilities including all social evenings and events.

We would like to welcome you as a member and invite you to browse this website or call in to the Club and have a chat with our Manager or any of our Stewards on duty.
