Indoor Bowling

Here at TLH Leisure Resort we know that bowlers like to take bowling holidays all year round. Therefore we developed our own tournament standard indoor bowls arena which was officially opened by David Bryant back in 1990.

Whether you’re a serious competitive bowler, or simply enjoy it as a sociable sport, TLH has developed a range of flexible bowling break options so you can enjoy your bowling right through the year. Whatever your level of bowling, there will be something to suit you.

This popular indoor facility is really busy from October through to early April. During this time groups are welcome to join a Festival or Tournament, or come on their own group holiday. Our Bowls Co-ordinator will arrange matches against other guest teams staying at TLH Leisure Resort or local teams local for you. Guests are welcome to book a roll up, subject to availability.

The English Riviera has plenty to offer in both the summer and winter months, making our hotels an ideal destination to combine your tour with a short break.
