Bournemouth is one of the most popular destinations in the UK for bowlers. The town attracts dozens of touring teams each year, many of them staying at the Ullswater Hotel.

The Bournemouth area boasts some of the finest outdoor greens in the country and has over 25 bowling greens within a 10 mile radius of the town. There are also many more within a 20 mile radius to give some variety to your visit.

We can arrange all your fixtures locally, tailor make your tour and offer requirements  to meet your specific requirements with such items as pre dinner cocktail on arrival, Gala Dinner on prize giving night. Entertainment can be arranged to suit your needs, catering for all ages.

Popular tours include trips to clubs in Bournemouth itself, the New Forest towns or over to Swanage and Poole, giving the bowlers a chance to spend some time seeing local points of interest.

Other fixtures may include clubs such as Salisbury with a morning visit to the Cathedral or market, or Weymouth, Portland or Dorchester allowing bowlers to view the beautiful Purbecks.

We will organise all fixtures and coach transport at very competitive prices, just call and speak to myself (Clive) about all aspects of your tour.

In the winter months, October to April, indoor tours are very popular and again, there is a wide variety of venues to choose from, whether you are on a long weekend or taking a midweek break. We are lucky to have the new Bournemouth Indoor Bowls Club on our doorstep, with both the Poole Dolphin I.B.C and East Dorset I.B.C at Christchurch only a short drive from the Hotel.

Some of our indoor teams like to venture a bit further to make a full day out and this year we have arranged matches as far afield as the Isle of Wight, Southampton, Winchester and Weymouth.
