Welcome to Julian Haines Bowls - lawn bowls shop.
The shop was owned and run by Julian Haines, 1984 World Fours Gold Medallist, assisted by Gill Mitchell who was a 2002 Commonwealth Games Fours Gold Medallist. Julian and Gill have now retired, but the business goes on, we aim to provide a friendly and helpful service to all bowlers at whatever level they play. Established as a specialist bowls shop for over 20 years, we continue to provide a first class, personal service to bowlers throughout the British Isles and beyond!
We are official stockists of all leading makes of bowls, together with bowls clothing and equipment from all the top manufacturers. We select only the very best by way of quality and value for money and are pleased to be able to provide a secure online shopping site for those of you who do not live in the immediate area, or prefer to shop from the comfort of your own home. If you would prefer to talk to us in person, please call on 01202 536059 (full contact details here). Why not read through some of the comments from previous customers, our testimonials page is here.
We are a bricks and mortar shop, not just a faceless Internet trader and, as such, you are promised good, honest advice no matter what your level of play. Winning medals does not come without hard work and experience and there is nothing we would like more than to think that we can help guide you to make the right purchases and take your game up a level. If you are ever in the Bournemouth area, we would love to have you visit us! (view a street map).
While you are browsing, why not take a couple of minutes to visit our thriving discussion forum (as mentioned in Bowls International magazine). With over 7000 members from the home countries and also as far away as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Spain, you will find many other bowlers to chat with, no matter what the time - day or night - and in the unlikely event that there is no one else around, there are ~25,000 previous discussions (and over 1 million individual comments) to read through! Be sure to visit us regularly for our great special offers - any queries or problems please give us a ring on the number below or email us. We are here to help you. Grab yourself a bargain!
We are pleased to bring you a whole bunch of products in our new clearance section, save yourself a fortune and have a browse...but be quick as stock is limited!
Another recent addition to the forum is a section for our Roadshows we are holding over the coming months in the Dorset/Hampshire area. Have a quick look at the dates and, if you are in the area at the right time, why not come and introduce yourselves and see the products we have on offer.
Many of our customers have been kind enough to tell us about the great service they have received - we thought we would share a couple with you all here:
We have received the item first thing this morning. I wish to thank you all for the professional nature of the transaction. I will be highly recommending your business to all my colleagues. Thank you again very much.
One of our customers purchased a bag which turned out to be faulty - we promptly sent out a replacement:
Again, customer service from Julian Haines has been first class; better than first class in fact, how about A*++. Understanding the problem, getting in touch with the supplier/manufacturer, arranging replacement. And most importantly, not making excuses or questioning the customer, just getting the job done. It does not get better than this
