About the Club

The Bowling Green is on Acaster Lane, Bishopthorpe and is generally open for play from mid-April until mid-September.  The green is now open for the 2017 season and visitors are most welcome.  Weekly Social Bowling sessions (informal matches and practice games) are held on Tuesday mornings at 9.45am for a 10:00am start and Club Nights on Wednesday evenings at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start.  In addition, Members are welcome to play at any time during the season.

New members, both men and women, are always welcome.  Please call Sue or Martin on 01904 702708 or come along to one of our regular sessions on a Tuesday or Wednesday.  Membership is open to all.

The annual membership fee is £50 for adults (reduced from July onwards), and £5 for juniors (12 to 17). Visitors are always welcome - you can play up to 5 sessions as a visitor, at £2.50 per session. 

Bowling can be enjoyed by all age groups and the Club accepts young people from the age of 12. (Please note that children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times). We can offer initial coaching, and if you're interested in playing competitively, we run teams in several York leagues and organise our own competitions throughout the season.

We also hold occasional social events with more light-hearted matches, generally followed by a convivial afternoon tea.
