Civil Service Bowling Club (Chatham)


Established in 1935, the Civil Service Bowling Club (Chatham) is run for the benefit of its members with the aim of enjoying the game of flat green bowls.

During our bowls season from April to September we hold both friendly (men, ladies and mixed teams) and competitive matches against other clubs, both home and away. On Tuesday afternoons and Thursday evenings we have ‘roll-ups’ when club members play friendly games against each other. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided midway through the session, free of charge.

You do not have to be a civil servant to join us – we welcome members from all walks of life. The club can provide woods and other equipment to get you started, and our coaches are happy to provide free coaching sessions. Find us next to the ROKO Health Centre in Watling Street, Gillingham.
