The Club

Frant Bowls Club is based in Frant, East Sussex. It is easy to find the green by the Memorial Hall on the Bells Yew Green Road on the opposite side to the cricket pitch. The post code is TN3 9ED or go to the location page for a map or directions.


There is an associated short mat club which is based in Frant Memorial Hall where roll-ups are held on Tuesdays during the winter season. The short mat club is not playing league matches this season.

Join us

Have you had enough of cricket or golf, knitting or flower-arranging? (No gender stereotyping here - anyone can do either.) Consider lawn bowls next. A chance to get outdoors and be competitive (but not too seriously) with a sociable crowd.

Everyone - experienced or absolute beginner, young or old, is made welcome to the club. Equipment is supplied and all we ask is that you wear shoes without heels. If you are new to the game then we are able to offer unofficial coaching by experienced bowlers.

Ordinarily matches are played most Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings during the outdoor season, which starts around the middle of April and continues until mid September. Informal roll-up sessions for members and non-members are normally held from 4.30pm on Tuesdays. Please feel free to contact one of the contacts listed.


The current season is now well under way. The first matches have been played in remarkably good weather compared to previous seasons which have started with very cold and sometimes wet weather down at Ringmer. This year everything was good there except the result! We have added a few to our members list this year after a few years of gradual decrease and although they have not played in any matches at the time of writing we're hopeful that this will change soon. There is plenty of opportunity to play in matches as the Captain's powers of persuasion are sometimes tested. We could still do with a few more members.

This Website

The current host of our website has recently announced the withdrawal of some of their email handling functionality before the end of the current contract and it is likely that to avoid the expense of effectively buying back this facility we will be changing the hosting of the website. This is likely to happen within the next month.

It is possible that the site will be unavailable for a few days while it is moved so apologies in advance.  I'll try and be more precise when plans are known.

Help us

Perhaps you'd like to support the club in some way but without the excitement of playing club matches? Add to the bar turnover or assist with keeping the green and surrounds maintained and your support would be welcomed.

The Green

The green has been complimented by visitors at the first home match of the season and is looking in good condition. The mainly dry weather for roll-ups and matches has meant it is running faster than in recent years at this stage of the season./p>

We've disposed of the old winter mower to an eBay buyer who snapped it up at the "Buy Now" price thus relieving the club of the problem of storing it and adding to the club's coffers.
