About the Club

Southbourne Tabletop and Boardgamers is an active and friendly wargames club based in the Bournemouth area. We meet on the first and third Sundays of the month at the Tuckton Social Club (BH6 3AA).

Times for the meetings are 10.00am – 6pm on the first Sunday of the month, 1.00pm – 6pm on the 3rd Sunday. We usually pack up and finish around 5 pm or just after. Free tea and biscuits are (usually) available.

There are normally a number of games organised and visitors are welcome to participate. If you contact us beforehand, we’ll arrange a place in a game for you or set up a table so you can put on your own game. Either way, you’ll always receive a warm welcome and a cup of tea!

We game all periods of history, fantasy and sci-fi for those who enjoy wargaming socially with miniatures, strategy games, and role playing games. Wargaming covers a variety of games creating historical and fictional battles on the tabletop.

New members are always welcome, including beginners and juniors of secondary school age. No equipment or experience is necessary, just arrive at a club meeting.

Membership is £40.00 a year or £3.00 per visit, (the first visit is free). There is a £5.00 concession for students, OAPs, those on benefits or serving members of the armed forces.

  1. Greetings,

    Just a punt but is Malifaux played at all by you chaps? I would be keen in getting going on this and any kind of tutorial or opportunity to watch a game or two to get a better feel of the rules would be appreciated.

    I’d obviously have to swim to Tuckton now the bridge is closed…

    • Neil. Unfortunately Malifaux is not currently played at the club. Most of our members play historical games but there are those who will play fantasy games. You are always welcome to call in on a club day to see if our club is for you. Regards. Alan.

  2. Hey there, new in town and interested in playing some Bolt Action. Is there any chance if someone could throw me a demo/tutorial game at the next meet up? I have played WHFB and WH40k in the past but have always wanted to try historical.


    • Hi James,
      Sorry not to get back to you sooner. Quite a few of our members play ww2 but the favoured rule set is Battlegroup in 20mm. Why don’t you pop in and see us on either the fist Sunday (start at 10am) or the third Sunday (start at 1pm) of each month to see if what we have to offer is for you.
      Alan Easton.
