Axminster Indoor Bowls Club

Axminster Indoor Bowls Club is situated within the main building of Cloakham Lawn Sports Centre on the outskirts of the market town of Axminster, Devon.

⧫ The road from the A358 down to the centre has been closed. ⧫

To get to the centre you will need to use the temporary access via Brewer Avenue (100m towards the town centre from the old turning), through the Bovis site following the signs.


The club offers indoor bowling on a three rink carpeted bowling green which is used throughout the year (leagues/competitions run from mid-September to mid-April). The centre has ample changing rooms, bar, kitchen and function area. There is a large car park adjacent to the centre. The club also has facilities for disabled bowlers; a wheelchair and a ramp onto the rinks.

After the floods of July 2012 a brand new floor and bowls carpet has been installed.


We offer social bowling where friends can meet for a roll-up and coffee. There are friendly matches with local and touring clubs. We offer competitive bowling at club and county level.  Touring sides are welcome (by arrangement).


We welcome new members of all ages. There are taster sessions available for those wishing to try the sport before committing themselves, with loan bowls and shoes provided. Coaching sessions are held every Tuesday evening from 6:30pm.
