Welcome to Orpington Bowling Club

OBC was founded in 1929 and is located within Goddington Park, just off Court Road on the south side of Orpington.
Our club opens its doors to any person who wishes to take up the sport of lawn bowling or to simply enjoy our social membership.
The outdoor season begins late April and ends late September and we have a few indoor fixtures as well as a social programme during the winter.  
The club is fully inclusive with ladies and gentlemen sharing responsibilities although both sections also have their separate activities and matches. Friendly matches are played against other local clubs and we are represented in the North West Kent League together with local district competitions.
In addition we have away-day fixtures, this year against New Romney, Broadstairs and Whitstable, which are very popular.
Various activities take place during the season including a Dinner Dance, Barn Dances, Quiz nights, BBQ and Fun days.
There are also internal club competitions, the winners of the ladies and gentlemen competitions going on the represent the club in both Kent and Nationals
We also have a small junior section, both boys and girls ranging between 8 – 17 years old.
At the end of the 2023 season; club membership stands at 100 members, 31 ladies, 44 men, 3 life members, 6 juniors and 16 social.
