Indoor Bowls


Rhiwbina has probably one of the best Short Mat Greens in South Wales. There are two permanent rinks, each approximately 22 metres long, located in a purpose built room at the Recreation Club.

The short mat game of bowls is extremely popular and involves a lot of skill and concentration. Although it is very competitive, it is also a very sociable, friendly and worthwhile sport; those who play derive a great deal of pleasure from it.

Our home, Rhiwbina Recreation Club, also has two outdoor bowling greens, two well-appointed bars, a large function room and ample car parking spaces. The Recreation Club also provides excellent tennis, squash, table tennis and rugby facilities.

Ladies' Indoor Bowls


Ladies' Indoor Bowls was first played at Rhiwbina on roll-out mats in the main hall of the Recreation Club in 1965. Our present and permanent facility was opened in 1985. We are a busy, active club with 55 members. We play in Welsh league matches, friendlies, in-house competitions as well a full programme of 'umbrellas', 'spoons' and roll-ups. We have a winter tour each season, also a busy social calender enjoyed by all. We are a very friendly group and welcome new members; free coaching is available upon request.
