The Bowls section has marvellous facilities in the idyllic setting of the Club's grounds adjacent to Beauchief Hall. Although the crown green is a little smaller than many, it is kept in tip-top condition and is used throughout the year.
Currently there are around 50 members and we are always keen to recruit. We have good access for disabled visitors. The chairman is Alan Haigh, the secretary Pat Sleath and the treasurer is Chris Grant.
The annual subs are £50 per person (cheaper than other city bowling clubs), but there is currently a special deal to cover membership of the Bowls section. If you join now Bowls will cost only £25 for the first year plus the normal Club membership fee.
Our green is open throughout the year when conditions allow. We have a limited number of fixtures with other bowling Clubs and would welcome more. Currently, we play against Ecclesfield, Hathersage, Hallam and Sheffield U3A. There are internal competitions and the list of winners for 2017 is shown below. The section holds a well-attended annual bowls holiday, and last year's took place in Llandudno in June. It was a huge success and this year's will be back in Llandudno from June 18 - 22 and there are a few vacancies still available. Throughout the year a crowd of bowlers can be found on the green on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and, when daylight permits, on Monday evenings. Members can play at whatever time suits them on any day. They can bring guest and are expected to pay £3 per session for each visitor.
