On Saturday 11th May 1912 Mr H W (later Lord) Forster MP as owner of the land on which the Club was built, cast the first jack and bowled the first two bowls to officially open Bellingham Bowling Club.  More history on our Centenary page. 

The comfortable clubhouse is flanked by two greens and a large car park, and is situated in a peaceful garden setting with great views overlooking many famous London landmarks. The clubhouse boasts a comfortable lounge and well stocked bar, with changing facilities for men and women, a shower room, and a fully fitted kitchen. 

The club also offers short mat bowling in the clubhouse during the winter season, and social membership is available to take advantage of other club activities which include darts evenings, whist drives, bingo evenings, quiz nights, and party nights.
