Latest update: 25th November 2023
The OUTDOOR bowling season is now complete, with our mens team finishing in the top half of Division 2. Club competitions are complete, and the greens are now CLOSED for winter maintenance.
Carpet bowls is now under way with the first few games completed. The club has entered 2 teams in the Falmouth & Camborne Carpet Bowls League, playing one match/week, with practice sessions and the social bowling filling up other days of the week.
Social indoor bowling (mainly, but not exclusively) for players not wanting to compete in league games, is at 2pm on a Monday. If you would like to try the game, meet some new people and enjoy a cup of tea, just turn up 5 minutes before the 2pm start.
We are still recruiting and invite men and ladies to give both games a try, with emphasis on carpet bowls during the winter. Send a message via this website and we will arrange a one to one session to give you an insight into this healthy enjoyable game, with no obligation.

Mawnan Bowling Club
was established in 1924. We are a friendly village club and wish to encourage all new bowlers, especially those who have never bowled before. Bowls is a game for all, regardless of age or ability. If you join us when life returns to normal, youwill have fun and meet new people. For those who have a competitive spirit there are plenty of opportunities, whilst the social bowler will find the good company we pride ourselves on.
The Club play in County Mens’ and Ladies’ Leagues. We also offer a mixed competition,- “Strollers” – which is aimed at those new to the game. Throughout the season we have our informal outdoor “roll ups” on Tuesday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm. We also play a number of friendlies, home or away, with other clubs throughout the West and Mid Cornwall areas. Then, of course, we have our Club Competitions, where ALL members are encouraged to take part.
Our Bowling Club is in the centre of the village on Carwinion Road and has plenty of onsite parking. We have two 3 rink greens which host our League and also County Competitions. The greens are normally open from mid-April until the end of September with the rinks being available, weather permitting, every morning, except Monday, from 10am. Both greens have Disabled access. Part of our club vision is to encourage youth groups to participate in the sport. That’s why we have been pleased to train pupils from Mawnan Smith Junior School in the game of bowls, as they prepare for the Cornwall Schools Competition .
Throughout the year our indoor carpet bowlers meet on Tuesday afternoons (and other times by arrangement) for social bowling, and the club enters teams in the Falmouth & Camborne Carpet Bowls league. Below sees “A” team captain Ray Robinson, being presented in 2019 with the Division 1 Winners Trophy.
The Club House has full kitchen facilities , with disabled amenities throughout the building. It is available for hire at a reasonable hourly rate. The car park can accommodate 30+ cars.
