Welcome to Kings Bowling Club

Kings Bowling Club originally started life back in 1927 as the Princess Gardens Bowling Club. The club, back then, occupied a position on the seafront near to where the Princess Theater stands today. In the 1930’s the Club moved to its present home in the King's Gardens, from which it took its name. Are there any other clubs that have changed gender?

Thanks to our national and international players, Kings BC is one of the UK's most successful bowls club. We are proud of, and humbled by, our achievements at the international, country and county level.
