Membership for the season 2018
As a Member of RAFA 381 Club we would like to invite you to join our friendly outdoor Bowls Section. Bognor RAFA 381 Bowls Section was formed to play friendly matches against other clubs and amongst the members in a relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy. We now have a varied programme in which everyone, whether they are a beginner or an experienced player, can take part. As we are not affiliated you are also able to play for us even if you belong to another Bowls Club. The match sheets are displayed in the Pavilion at the Waterloo Square greens where we play our home matches.
RAFA Full Playing Annual Membership £ 12.50 per person.
Junior (under 18) / Social Membership £ 3.00 per person

RAFA sky blue poloshirts or sweatshirts are required for all matches, and these are available either from Game Set & Match in Chichester or Unique, 48 London Rd., Bognor Regis. Please indicate below if you want details.
If you have not tried outdoor bowling before, then come along to our Tuesday morning friendly ‘triples’ for a 10.15 start, where there are always players ready to help and inspire! Teams are drawn on the day, and we play for a couple of hours and points are given for turning up and also for winning! Everyone Welcome! There are also various Competitions which are another opportunity to get to know the other players, these are usually drawn prior to the Pre season Party to which all Members are invited on Friday 27th April.
A really popular internal Team Competition is ‘Boozebusters’, a Friday League game which is played from the end of June. With 36 players we are able to form Six Teams, each of 5/6 people playing a Triples match so that each player will play on average six games each during the season. The winning Team will receive a bottle of wine each at the Christmas Party.
RAFA Bowls Section is also in the First division of the Brooks Motors Bowls Mixed Friendly League. If you enjoy the challenge of more competitive games, please indicate your interest on the Competitions Form which is available on the Bowls Notice board in the Foyer or from
