Come and join us in 2016
Last year the membership at Elvaston increased by 25%. Come and see what makes bowls such a popular sport for all.
Whatever your standard, from beginner to County player, our members will make it easy for you to fit in and enjoy the game. New bowlers can benefit from free coaching and other incentives. Why wait? Application forms are available from the Secretary, or may be downloaded here.
Success on the green...
The men finished as runners-up in the Northumberland Challenge Cup (16 July). The club has never won the Cup since its inception in 1932, so this was "as close as it gets". For now...
Our ladies' fours are going to Leamington to represent the County in the national finals, and two of the team will be there also playing in singles competitions. For more detail see our Match Reports ("Don't Give Up").
... and off the green
We have been successful in a bid for funds to purchase a number of sets of bowls, to encourage young people to take up the sport. This project is in conjunction with Sport Northumberland, as is our work with the Gateway project for people with disabilities.
The Club plays in three local
leagues with men's, ladies' and mixed teams, as well as enjoying several informal sessions each week.
We also play about 18 friendly matches
each year, against a wide range of neighbouring clubs. Check
out our full schedule .
