Welcome back to our members and an extra special welcome to our new joining members this year. We are delighted to announce that our outdoor bowling greens are now open each day from 12 noon to 5pm (or until the last person leaves) approximately.

Changing rooms will be open every Wednesday and Sunday afternoons for members to use and to read the information boards. Unfortunately the rest of the club house will remain out of use until further notice to comply with Government restrictions.

The club is non profit making and all of its activities are arranged by a committee formed from members.

The Outdoor Bowling Club is situated adjacent to the sea front and beach.We are fortunate to have a Toby Carvery facing the beach, approximately 80 yards from the Bowling club, plus the Greensward Cafe opposite, both serving hot and cold food. We have 2 greens each with 6 rinks plus a spacious, well-appointed licensed clubhouse and a large car park.  Alternatively there is free parking in the streets adjacent to the club plus a coach car park 100 metres away.

We are open for bowling from midday until dusk seven days a week. 

The comfortable lounge has a well-stocked bar with a Club Steward on duty. Bar is open during normal licencing hours. 

Our excellent facilities include a fully fitted kitchen, ladies and gents changing rooms and toilets plus a separate toilet for the disabled with wheelchair access.

There are approximately 130 playing members and in excess of 50 social members. This fact together with the superb facilities makes Clacton Outdoor Bowls Club one of the most sought after clubs in the country. 

During the winter there is a full programme of activities that includes social events, carpet bowls, cribbage, canasta, darts, table tennis bingo and bridge.
