Volunteering is the lifeblood of any sport, and we could not function without the thousands of people who give up their time at bowls clubs up and down the country.

We are looking for people who want to help drive our sport forward, by enhancing the visitor experience in a variety of ways, such as:

Welcoming Guests

Scoring and Tournament Operations

Front of House (Ticket Office, Retail)


And More

All volunteers will receive an induction, as well as relevant training to ensure they have all the information and skills to fulfil their role. New to Bowls? Don’t fret! We can give you a Bowls 101 as part of your training, but knowledge of Bowls is not required.

Our opportunities are open to everyone – whether you are in between years at university or retired and looking for something to keep busy. Volunteering with us will give you opportunities to meet a variety of friendly people, gain new skills and be a part of exciting events, like our National Finals.


Sign Up Now


If you would like to volunteer for the Nationals Finals specifically, please note that applications will close on 30th June.


“I felt part of the team and met different people every day in the field which was quite inspiring”

It is hugely important to all of us at Bowls England that the efforts of volunteers are rewarded and recognized. Our Annual Awards Night celebrates the amazing support of all our volunteers, and all volunteers will be considered for our ‘Bowls Maker of the Year’ Award.

Volunteer Support for Clubs

We are working with the Bowls Development Alliance (BDA) to ensure clubs have opportunities and resources to support their volunteers and improve their capability to manager their club effectively.
