West Tyne Gala Day Winners 2019


Membership at Elvaston increased yet again in 2019.  This year has been more challenging because of the coronavirus issue, but even if the game is being played a bit differently this year we could still offer a good introduction to the sport.  

We cannot allow drop-in visitors, for safety reasons, but potential bowlers should feel free to be in touch.  Hopefully we'll be able to let you  see what makes bowls such a popular sport for all. The health benefits are obvious.  It's serious exercise - and serious fun!

Ladies win trophy at Gosforth 

Our ladies' rinks won the Gosforth Centenary Invitation event in August last year.   

Whatever your standard, our members will make it easy for you to fit in and enjoy the game. We have three qualified coaches, who offer their advice for free.  Why wait? 

 Application forms are available from the Secretary, or may be downloaded here.

Non-members are normally welcome to play, for a small fee per session.  (However, in 2020, for reasons of public safety, this facility is suspended.)  For more information, please contact the club secretary.

WANT TO PLAY?

Like all other sports clubs we were forced to miss the start of the season.   Indeed, all external competitions  had to be cancelled for 2020.  All references in these pages to the various leagues that we play in should be seen in that context.

However, we are pleased to say we are now open again.  Various new procedures are in place, to maximise safety and to minimise risk.  Notably, rinks must be booked in advance, online, and the number of rinks in use at any one time is limited.   But... we are back in business!

Despite this, we've had to bow to the inevitable and cancel our Open Mixed Triples event planned for 22 August.  Thanks to all who expressed an interest.  We hope to see you again in future.


We shall keep our Twitter account updated as and when there are developments. You can follow us @HexhamElvaston, and find us also on Facebook
