Harperbury is a community based lawn bowls club located on the old Harperbury Hospital site in the Haperbury Park development between Radlett and Shenley.  The club serves the communities of south St Albans and Borehamwood.

Harperbury is affiliated to Bowls England; Hertfordshire Bowls; St Albans & District Bowls Association; St Albans & District Ladies Bowls Association and Watford and District Bowls Association.

We have nearly 100 members including full, associate and Junior / student members and we play the full range of matches from roll ups and friendlies against other local clubs to competing in all the local and national tournaments.

The club has its own full size 6 rink green, which is often voted as one of the best in the area by opposing teams.

The club owns a specially adapted and motorised bowls wheelchair and we actively welcome disabled bowlers.

In addition to bowling, club members benefit from a full range of other social activities including whist and games in the winter; walks and rambles and quizzes as well as trips away and visits to the dogs and theatres. We also have a thriving ad hoc golf society.

Our Philosophy

Harperbury Bowls Club's philosophy is that Bowls is a fun game to be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what age or level of ability. We are a fully mixed club and play friendlies against other clubs on a mixed basis.

That philosophy is enshrined through an ethos of respecting the right of all members to participate in club activities free from harassment, abuse and intimidation.

Our History

Harperbury Bowls Club was established in 1955 as a social facility provided by Harperbury Hospital for the benefit of patients and staff.  In 2000 the club separated from the hospital to become a private sports association.

Our club badge reflects our connection with the hospital and derives from hospital staff coming from all corners of the UK.
