Edmonton Bowls Club is part of the Edmonton Sports and Social Club. Originally Edmonton Bowls Club was the bowls section of the Edmonton Cricket Club. It is not known exactly when the EBC became an independent Bowls Club.
The Club was officially restricted to men only in 1930 and lady bowlers were not admitted until 1968 when the Ladies Section was formed following a joint request from 15 ladies.
The present Green was laid in 1925 and consists of 6 Rinks.
There is a Club House and Bar which we share with other sections of the Sports & Social Club.
Our logo depicts a horse and rider which is said to commemorate John Gilpin's ride. John Gilpin was said to have become separated from his wife and children on the way to The Bell Inn at Edmonton. (Now known as The Gilpin's Bell, a Wetherspoon pub on the corner of Claremont Street and Fore Street, Edmonton). He lost control of his horse and was carried along to Ware, ten miles away. The poet William Cowper wrote a famous ballad telling this story, entitled The Diverting History of John Gilpin.
