The Indoor Bowling Rinks at The DORSET BOWLS RESORT were only built in 2009, but already they are used by guests staying at The Resort, by groups of bowlers on holidays, and by local people.We are keen to encourage local people to take up Bowls. The sport suits all age groups from 9 years of age to 90 years of age. Bowls is a very friendly sport, it helps to keep people fit and healthy, and is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends.

At The Dorset, we have a dedicated team of in house coaches, who are delighted to teach bowling to beginners, and to help existing bowlers improve their skills. The lessons are very modestly priced, and the coaches are skilled in improving EVERYONE’s bowling abilities.

EVERYONE is welcome to come along, look at the facilities, meet the coaches, and arrange a roll-up to see if you enjoy bowling. WE ARE CERTAIN YOU WILL LOVE BOWLING! We provide all the equipment necessary for you to enjoy your “taste of bowls”. We provide the coaches, bowls shoes, bowls, and even a brochure on “Bowls for Beginners”.

As well as coaching, we organise roll ups, practice matches, matches against Tourists and local clubs, and we run leagues in both the Summer periods, May to September, and Winter leagues from mid September to mid April. We also run Club Championships for Men & Ladies Singles, Mens, Ladies & Mixed Pairs and Mens & Ladies Triples.
Each time you play bowls, you will pay a modest rink fee, currently only £1.50 per hour. This makes Bowling a very INEXPENSIVE SPORT THAT EVERYONE CAN ENJOY.

We are running 5 Summer and Winter Leagues – Monday mornings, Monday evenings, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and Friday mornings and also have a Saturday evening ‘come along and enjoy’ roll ups.
