United Services

Founded in 1921 in the historical market town of Barnstaple, North Devon – you can enjoy Bowling at United Services Bowling Club, only 5 minutes walk from the Town centre.

There is a newly refurbished Club House and Bar with separate Male and Female changing facilities.

We have mens, ladies and mixed matches, with up to 7 rinks available and there is a free car park and a well stocked bar with catering facilities.

Touring sides, visitors to the area and spectators are most welcome. We would also be pleased to talk to other Devon clubs about friendly fixtures. It is always a pleasure to see new members, whether new to bowls or experienced players. Coaching is available by our qualified instructors. The Green is normally open from mid morning to dusk, from around the middle of April until the end of September. Our Mixed Pairs Round Robin Tournament runs over the August Bank Holiday weekend. COME AND SEE US! We have a full and varied winter social programme, including quizzes, horse racing, skittles etc. Non-Playing members are welcome to join our social side. Membership currently stands at 91 Men and Lady playing members with a further 40 or so social members.
