We at Thame Bowls Club are delighted that you have chosen to join us and hope you enjoy many years of bowling. It is a great social game and you will meet lots of people who have many years of experience in the game who will help you in the learning process, but you will also meet many newcomers to the game.


Roll-ups are a great way to make friends and spend an enjoyable hour or so. The Green is open from 11am till dusk. This season we are organising roll-ups on Tuesday evenings at 6pm for those new to the game. Alternatively arrange with a few friends to meet up and enjoy a pleasant afternoon bowling. Or, you could meet up any other weekday evening, have a game and a drink in our bar from 7pm. You can book space on the green using the booking sheets in the Clubhouse.


The bowling season starts around mid-April and finishes late September. There are various Social Events at the Club all year round, fun days including Ladies v Gents and Captain v Vice Captain matches and the socially minded Friday Evening club games with bacon or sausage butties afterwards.
