About us

Folkestone Park Bowls Club is the oldest club in Folkestone.

History We have been resident at our location in Radnor Park since 1900. Although the greens are council owned, since 1998 the Club has maintained its own greens.

The Club makes a conscious effort to meet the needs of all members whether their main interest lies in playing for fun or in achieving county and national success. We are progressive and forward thinking, demonstrated by the fact that we are the first club within Kent and probably England, to play in coloured tops rather than the old fashioned shirt and tie image that so many clubs still enforce. We field men’s and ladies teams in a total of some 100 games through the year. These range from league games, county games and friendlies.

Policy of equality The Club has a proven policy of equality for all members irrespective of gender or age. This ensures equal access to the green at all times; equal votes at the AGM and equal eligibility to stand for election to any post on the committee.

We provide tuition and are able to loan equipment. We believe that the best way to learn is by playing and all our members can assist you from day one.
