Welcome to the home page of the Isle of Man Flat Green Bowling Club. We are located in Onchan Pleasure Park, Onchan, opposite the Boating Lake. From the green we have fabulous uninterrupted views over Douglas Bay. We are the only flat green bowling club on the Isle of Man which is traditionally a crown green environment.

The Club meets on Tuesdays, and Saturdays at 2.15pm for mainly informal social bowling (except when we have a competition). We also have a more competitive league program, with Singles on Monday evenings and Pairs on Wednesdays, both 6.30pm starts. We also have a daytime Pairs league on Fridays at 1.00pm. A key to the Club house is provided to members so if these times don't suit, members can arrange games anytime to suit their commitments. We aim to accommodate both the casual and more competitive bowler. Why not come along and try flat green bowling for yourself.

New players will be made most welcome regardless of experience and ability. We can lend you a set of bowls until such times as you get your own. The informal nature of our meetings make it ideal for the novice bowler to learn the ropes. Our more experienced bowlers will be happy to provide you with basic tuition on the skills of the game.

Bowls is a sport that can be played by all age groups and men and women can play and compete together. It provides gentle anaerobic exercise but do not underestimate its contribution to your overall fitness and well being. It also provides many social benefits and an opportunity to make new friends. If you are new to the Island then it is an excellent way to integrate into the community.

Bowls compared to other sports is relatively inexpensive, the basic equipment you need is a set of bowls (which can be bought second hand and last a lifetime) and a pair of heelless flat shoes. Club fees for this year are £20 (£10 for new members), this includes all competitions, plus you will need an annual season ticket from Onchan Commissioners (bought through us) which will allow you to use both the flat and crown greens for £56.00 for the full season. Great value!

Why not come along to any of our Club meetings and try our sport, you may be surprised at how enjoyable it is, just make yourself known to any of our players or contact our Secretary for further information:
