Welcome to Falcon Bowling and Social Club

The Falcon Bowling and Social Club is an indoor and outdoor bowling and social club based in purpose-designed premises on the edge of Chelmsford in Essex. The club facilities include 8 indoor bowling rinks, 2 outdoor bowling greens (one grass, one all-weather), comprehensive changing facilities, a welcoming reception and administration office, The Rinks Restaurant, The Falcon Club Bar, a Club Shop, plenty of parking and disabled accessibility to all areas. Set in beautifully maintained gardens, the club is also served by key road links close to the A12. 

Founded in 1908, the club moved to its current location in 2002 where it was able to expand the range of facilities available to its members and visitors. Since the relocation, the Club has been proud to host the Denny Finals (the National Club Championships) on three consecutive occasions, regularly welcomes new members and provides an inviting atmosphere for the many visitors it receives from all parts of the UK for inter-club matches.
