About this site

Church House Grounds is in the heart of Tarring lying between the Church of St. Andrew to the north and Tarring recreation ground to the south. The nearest road where free on street parking is Church Road, Tarring.

The site is flat and mostly turf with ornamental planting and some lovely mature trees, Church House Grounds is a quiet and peaceful place where bowls and tennis are played. It is often used as a walk through by local residents and has tarmac paving running across the site linking up with Tarring Recreation Ground.

There are public conveniences at this site open to the public from 9:30am to dusk every day, which are located at the Bowls Pavilion.

How do I book a bowls green at this site?

Tarring Priory Bowls Club sell season tickets and make their own arrangements for allocating play on the bowling greens.

Daily play will still take place and the public can make arrangements direct with the bowling clubs and pay their fee to play bowls daily.

Mats, shoe hire and jacks will be available for those who wish to turn up and play.
