Welcome to the website of Bromley Bowls Centre!

Bromley Indoor Bowls Centre offers a warm welcome to bowlers of all abilities.

Despite the name, it is worth clarifying that we are located in Orpington (near the Fire Station in Avalon Road) and also cater for outdoor bowlers during the summer via BIBCOS (Bromley Indoor Bowls Centre Outdoor Section).

Officially opened in October 1997, and part funded by the National Lottery, Bromley Indoor Bowls Centre provides first class facilities all year round.  

It provides an ideal venue for everything from casual games and friendlies, to inter-club league and national matches.

The centre is equipped to meet top competition standards.  We have eight indoor which are used annually in September to host World Champioship Qualifiers, and six outdoor rinks which have a state-of-the-art all-weather surface.
