Welcome to our website. Oxford City and County Bowls Club has excellent all-year-round facilities that attract a large membership of some 600 members but we are always ready to welcome new members, whether experienced bowlers, those completely new to bowling, or those interested only in social membership. We cater for all ages and, in particular, we have a flourishing group of junior bowlers.
If you would like to try out the sport, and for details of our coaching facilities visit our
Take up Bowling page.
Various kinds of membership are available; the choice is yours. So you might be attracted by more serious bowls events, varying from national (Bowls England) to county (Bowls Oxfordshire), club competitive and friendly matches. On the other hand, you might just want to roll up with friends. For details of membership, click here.
Our two outdoor greens provide sufficient rinks for major matches and tournaments, as well as ample opportunity to enjoy roll-ups with friends.
Our indoor green has six rinks and some members only bowl indoors - all year round!
These combined facilities enable the Club to cater both for bowlers with more serious interests in the sport and also for members who just want to bowl for fun. There are good areas for viewing bowls matches, both indoor and outdoor.
We cater also for non-bowlers who may just want to enjoy the benefits of social membership. For all members there is a varied programme of social functions such as regular club nights, when bowling is available, BBQs, or light suppers, live entertainment, happy hour at the bar, whist, full-sized snooker, Christmas draw, and informal dinners, all of which help to raise funds for the club. Our clubhouse is well equipped with excellent bar and catering facilities, lockers, good changing rooms, and comfortable lounge. There is also ample car-parking space for members and visitors.
The club itself is open all day and every day, except at Bank Holidays.
