Francis Drake Bowls Club

Welcome to the Francis Drake Bowls Club
SE4 1QE

We are a friendly, successful club situated in beautiful Hilly Fields Park, Brockley, and always welcome new members and guests.

From 30 April 2019 to end of September, Tuesday and Thursday from 2pm to 5.30pm we have roll up sessions where members play casual games with teams selected on the day and practice their skills.  On most Wednesday evenings, 6pm, and Sunday mornings,  10.30am, we have more casual sessions which non-members are welcome to join in. Fee for non-members is £3 per session which includes loan of shoes and bowls if required. If planning to come for casual bowling Sunday or Wednesday please note some sessions will not run due to 'away' fixtures or other events you can call or email to confirm. 

The 2019 season is now over and the green is closed. However we are expecting some unusual activity at the green during this 'closed' season so watch this page for exciting news. We do also have 2 indoor games against Lewisham Indoor Bowls Club at Lower Sydenham (see fixtures for details), as well as some other winter activities so watch this page for updates.

Many FDBC members join the Lewisham Indoor Bowls Club at Lower Sydenham to bowl indoors through the winter, coaching is also available for beginners, if you would like more information regarding indoor bowling please contact us.
