2023 was TBBC's CENTENARY Year!

Another season draws to an end, but we look forward to welcoming old and new friends back in April 2024 for the new season. The Club remains open throughout the Winter with various events occurring and, of course, our Short Mat league!

During this Centenary season we have enjoyed some great events and competitions. Members of the Club have achieved some notable victories (more on these below).

Our Club is situated on the sea-front with magnificent views over the estuary, making it one of the most attractive Clubs in Essex.  The Club is open to all with a bowling membership of around 120 and an additional 60 social members. The Club offers members the opportunity to bowl in various leagues, competitions and friendly matches. 


Our 2023 Membership is now full. If you would like to join us in 2024 please use our 'Contact Us' page and provide your details. You will be added to the waiting list and we will contact you around March 2024. For those new to bowls we have qualified coaches to help you along your bowls journey.

The club has a green which is well cared for ​and maintained by our green team. The attractive club house has a fantastic terrace which is a great place to relax and socialise with friends over a beverage from our well stocked bar, or a cup of tea. The Club is mixed and has changing facilities for both Ladies and Gentlemen.

The Club is affiliated to Bowls England, London & Southern Counties Bowling Association, Essex County Bowling Association and the Southend & District Bowling Association.
