About Us


Cliftonville Bowls Club enjoys some of the best sea views in Thanet from its new club house on St Georges Lawns, Third Avenue, Cliftonville, Kent, CT9 2LN.

Open to the public: this friendly, licensed club provides healthy exercises to both sexes, of all ages and ability; playing Lawn or Short Mat Bowls and Petanque (Boules). We also help run Team building events and let out our Hall for Birthdays etc.

Our social events include quizzes and music evenings, including line dancing evenings. Dates for these events and others can be found on our social calendar.

We are very keen for new players in all three sports where coaching can be given if required.

Lawn Bowls: We are open from April to September where the club plays in three different leagues (Ladies – Men’s & East Kent). We try hard to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to play and not just the very best players.

In 2018 the club is looking to participate other competitions, therefore there will be plenty of games to choose from.

Children play for free.

Short Mat Bowls: For our members, we are open from the end of the outdoor bowls season until the end of March, however we offer special sessions for people with a range of disabilities.

Petanque: Our pitch make-up is dust to 3mm granite and provides an ideal surface for this challenging sport. We currently play each Wednesday at 3pm, weather permitting. We are very keen for new players and families to join. This will allow us to join the North East Kent League; where games are played Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings March – September.
