Bowls is on a roll at Northern, thanks to two top class greens, which provide superb Crown Green Bowling facilities for the club’s ten teams. The quality of the greens has been recognised by the hosting of several tournaments in the national calendar, attracting top bowlers from across the country.

The section has 10 mixed, men only or ladies only teams playing in afternoon or evening leagues.

Afternoon friendly matches with other local clubs are arranged by the ladies section throughout the season.

Organised social bowling mainly takes place on Tuesday and Saturday afternoons. In-house competitions, open to all members, are held regularly throughout the season. Not everyone wants to play in competitive matches and there is usually one green available for use even when these are taking place. The greens are open everyday in the season from 11am.

Both sections have qualified instructors to teach beginners or help bowlers to improve their game, and bowls are available for use by anyone who wishes to give the game a try.

If you would like to hire one – or both – of our greens for a corporate or social event, please get in touch.
