Welcome

HERNE BAY WEATHER

Herne Bay Bowling Club is situated in the town's Memorial Park and is approximately 400 yards from the railway station and 500 yards from the sea front. The club was founded in 1926 and hosts several Open Tournaments throughout the season. During the close season, short mat bowls is played in the clubhouse.

Visitors to the club will find that the town of Herne Bay has much to offer to enhance their visit. The sea front has undergone a 3 million pound facelift, which has restored many of the original Victorian features. This together with additional facilities has made Herne Bay very popular with both day-trippers and longer-term visitors.

Short Mat Section

We run a Short Mat Section during the winter months and are affiliated to the Kent Short Mat Bowling Association and members of the East Kent Short Mat Bowling Association.

Herne Bay men are through to the 4th round of the National Double 4’s competition with a 1 shot victory over Canterbury. The overall lead changed several times during the course of the match and bowling the final wood of the match Bay skip Grant Allen was a shot down which would have given Canterbury victory. However, with the jack only a yard or so from the ditch he managed to draw the shot. Bay will now be home to either Hythe or Ramsgate.

I promised a spectacular at Spencer Road last night in the English Bowling Association Double rink 3rd Round game against Canterbury, and what we got was a classic. Whether or not I would have classed it as such had Grant's last bowl had a different ending remains to be seen. However, those fortunate enough to attend were rewarded with a bowls match between two evenly matched sides that lived up to what one would expect from some of Kent's finest.
