Gillingham is located to the north of Dorset close to the borders with Somerset and Wiltshire. Only 15 minutes off the main east to west trunk road (A303) and close to the magnificent National Trust facility at Stourhead.

The bowling club is situated at the end of School Lane SP8 4QR and has a full six rink green which we can layout to 7 rinks when required, reputed to be the best in Dorset.

The brick built clubhouse established in 2002 and refurbished in October 2014 has a private car park and facility for coach parking nearby.


It's location makes it an excellent stop for any touring teams heading to or returning from the south coast being only 90 minutes coach travel from Bournemouth or Weymouth. Coach parking is often available close to the club at weekends. We have a well stocked bar and large kitchen that can provide bowlers teas, buffet lunches, cold or hot two course meals for up to 90 people served before or after the match.

Please look at our Club house in the photo gallery. We are also affiliated to the Dorset County Bowls Association at
