The City and Port of Bristol Sports and Social Club is a members association

located at Nibley Road, Shirehampton since 1967.

The clubhouse is set on the banks of the river Avon giving us a picturesque setting for hosting, weddings birthdays or a good old fashioned party!


The Club itself is a non-profit organisation which puts its members first.


We offer great leisure facilities to members and guests in a family friendly environment.

Bowling team


If you have not tried bowling before but would like to, then Tuesday evenings at the green throughout the season are just made for you. They are completely free of charge, all equipment is supplied and there are experienced bowlers on hand to give you help and advice.

You can have up to three sessions without commitment, to see if bowling on a green is your game. It is a healthy outdoor activity, providing exercise, a worthwhile interest, the chance to meet people and make new friends.


For further information please call David Hinksman on 0117 9082713.
