In line with the recently announced Covid-19 'roadmap' Bowls England are confident that outdoor bowling will be able to start after 29 March, albeit this may be on a Covid-19 restricted basis initially. Walton BC is, therefore, planning to start the 2021 season in mid-April, as usual.

Meanwhile, we are able to confirm that the Club has sufficient financial resources to see it through the 2021 season, come what may.

(Updated March 2021)


The Club was founded in 1922 and can be found on the Elm Grove Recreation Ground in Walton-on-Thames. Since 1937 the Club has been open to men and women bowlers and there is an extensive programme of mixed friendly matches against other Clubs, as well as many Club competitions. The Club enters teams and individuals in several Surrey leagues, Surrey County Competitions and Tournaments. The Pavilion and Green have been progressively improved over the years, largely through the efforts of the Club Members.

We are one of the smaller Clubs in Surrey which means members have ample opportunities to play in matches. In addition to the summer outdoor bowls season we have a Short Mat available September to April. During the summer and winter the club holds social events in the Clubhouse. Every Tuesdays during the summer season (mid April to mid September) the club is open from 5 pm when members and their guests can enjoy a ‘roll-up’ with light refreshments and drinks available. Feel free to turn up and introduce yourself.

New members, new or experienced, are always welcome. We offer coaching for both new bowlers and those who wish to brush up their skills.
