Join the slow lane

Bowls offers gentle exercise and is a great way to relax – after work, at the weekend, on long summer evenings.

Greville Smyth Community Bowls Club is a great experience in a beautiful part of South Bristol.

We play on the bowling green in Greville Smyth Park, a short walk from Southville, Hotwells, Harbourside, Clifton, Ashton and Bedminster.  The park is one of the best community spaces in Bristol, and the green is maintained to a high standard.

Come and join us.  Just turn up and play!


It's not just bowls!
