News and Club Information (hover to pause)

Update from Tynemouth and District BA – 6 June 2020
Latest news is that all league games and competitions have been cancelled for 2020 and these will be carried through
to next season, 2021. A possible inter club competition may be playable but could prove very difficult to operate.
Further information awaited.
News Update from Bowls England 12th May 2020
Bowls England have released a document outlining the current state of play for the use of bowling greens.
As Trustees we naturally advise all members to wait for further clarification from Bowls England and Government
and ask that you read the document in full before heading for the green.
Further, while Bowls England are seeking further advice from Government, the Trustees shall await that information.
When the conditions are right then further notice will be given in the usual ways.

Membership of the Club is open to all persons regardless of their ability, age or gender. New members are always warmly welcomed. A membership form can be completed on this site and presented to the Club via its post box near the entrance gate or posted to our Club Secretary. If a visitor to the Club shows an interest in taking the game up as an active sport, whether competitive or casual, then current Club members will be only too pleased to advise.

There are different levels of the game for anyone interested in playing. Our Club has casual bowling sessions, coaching, roll-ups and for the more competitive player, we have local leagues of differing levels of competitiveness. We also have official umpires as members of our Club. There are County level knockout matches which could lead to County level play and possibly even National level with England for example. Indeed at least one of members has gone on to play for England in recent years and has won the Family Pairs Competition at National level.

Like many other Clubs in the region we are always looking for new members and we are currently seeking to expand our facilities which could help the Club with its future stability and ongoing relative success. At this time we currently have both men’s and ladies teams and some leagues where mixed play is standard. If you are looking to join the Club there are differing membership levels, details of which can be obtained upon request via completion of the form on the Contact Us page.
