Welcome to Chester-le-Street Bowling Club 2024
WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO A NEW SEASON FROM MID APRIL 2024
We are a very friendly club dating back to 1934 with both male and female members, and always extend a warm welcome to anyone interested in playing, whether wanting to just “have a go” or have dusted off their bowls to see if they still have the knack!
The greens were in constant use all last season, although the rain had messed up the fixtures lists a bit, so we're crossing our fingers for a drier summer.
We will continue our twice-weekly "Roll-Up" on Fridays and Sundays 10am 'til noon during the playing season, and casual bowling is also available at these times. In addition, if you want to give it a try, or pick up where you left off from long ago, please complete our Contact form to arrange a couple of free sessions. Hopefully, you may enjoy it so much you'll decide to become full members, although there's no pressure.
Our clubhouse is located within Riverside Park, Chester-le-Street with a backdrop of the magnificent Lumley Castle, and the River Wear flowing close by.
The club will again compete in 3 leagues in 2024:
- Monday Pelton Fell & District League
- Tuesday Durham County Bowling Federation Veterans Section (Central Division)
- Thursday Sunderland & District Bowling Association - Howey League
The club also shares its facilities with the Durham Croquet club .
Streets in the residential areas near the park are now designated as "Residents Only Permit".
Visitors should therefore park in the Riverside car park for which charges apply.
Please note the car park can be very busy during school holidays or when there is a cricket match on.
