Affiliated to: Yorkshire Bowling Association
and Bowls England.

Participating in Bowls England's Big Bash.

Our club, formed in 1951, is located at Ronaldshay Park, off Quakers Lane, although the green has been there since the 1920s. We are open to members and visitors during the season (April - September) from mid-morning until dusk, seven days a week. 

Over the years the clubhouse, grounds, and green have been much improved and the green now complies to the required standards for match play at all levels.

Free 'taster' sessions are available each Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm, when bowls and shoes are provided for those wanting to try the sport. We welcome all ages and abilities from beginners to experienced bowlers. Please note that many of our visitors go on to become full members.
