Joining TDBC


There are two ways to make initial contact with Taunton Deane Bowling Club;

  • Call the head coach on 01823 661127; currently Mervyn Batten.

Taster session for new bowlers

Reception will contact the club coach who will then call the new contacts to make the appropriate arrangements for a free taster session lasting approximately 2 hrs.
Once the Taster Session is complete the new bowlers can judge if the Sport of Bowls is for them.

Following the taster session, if the new bowlers decide to have further training, then there follows 4x 2hr free sessions. At the end these, the new bowlers should have a good understanding of the game of Bowls and the workings of Taunton Deane Bowling club.

Once successful training is complete the new bowler will be offered the chance to join the club; all costs and fees will be explained.


Bowls and shoes are available to  borrow for a coaching session, subject to availability. Any equipment borrowed must be returned to the coach at the end of your session. There is no charge for this.
There is a shop on site that supplies the required clothing and shoes. Bowls can be ordered.


All applications for membership are subject to approval by the Board of Directors.

Once training has been completed and membership attained further training sessions can be arranged at the cost of a 2hr rink fee/person; liaise with the club coach.

From time to time specific training sessions are advertised on the notice board and any member wishing to take part needs to add their name and contact details to the posted notice.
