Our club is set in the lovely village of Marldon in South Devon, close to Paignton, Torquay and Brixham, jointly known as Torbay. The club was founded in 1987, but until 1995 when we acquired our own green, all matches were played away and the longstanding joke for touring sides is that we were once unbeaten at home for 8 years!!!!
The club is affiliated to the Bowls England and Bowls Devon. Our men play in the Mid Devon League, and the Over 55’s Triples League and our women in the South Devon Ladies Bowling League.
Our club colours are green and gold, both the men and ladies play in green and white coloured shirts for Club representative games. See our current dress code in the Club Rules.
We also hold the annual Marldon Fours Open Tournament which is open to all clubs in the area and is always a very successful event. For 2017 we are able to announce Club sponsors, Glendevon Furnishers of Palace Avenue, Paignton, Orchard Cars & Totnes Taxis Ltd, Taxi Services (Alan Routledge), Kevan “D” Home Enhancement (Kevan Davey), Avon Ground Maintenance Company and Paignton Flat Roofing
See our Facilities page for more details of what we can offer.
We play many fixtures in the Summer, including home and away local matches against Clubs from Torquay, Paignton, Newton Abbot, Totnes, Brixham and the wider Devon area, plus touring sides and our league games. During the Winter we play in a Shortmat League and have shortmat sessions in our Village Hall, and also play friendly games at the local indoor bowling centres which includes the Torbay Leisure Hotels, Torquay United and Torbay Indoor Bowling Assoc..
