Bowling Club

Thurgoland Bowling Club plays from April until October with 8 teams in 2 leagues and for social bowling. Experienced players or newcomers looking for a social activity are very welcome.

We are situated in the heart of the village, between the football ground and the tennis court, and although we have a big green fence around us we welcome new members to play or people who just want to watch .The club is above 50 years old and runs 8 teams very successfully, 6 in the Barnsley League and 2 in the Dearne & Don League, which is the Huddersfield area. Matches are played on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, starting between 5.45p.m and 7.00p.m, and Tuesday and Friday afternoons, starting at 2.00 p.m.Our season starts at the beginning of April and runs through until October and is played by all age groups and gender. We also run several club competitions throughout the season either on weekends or anytime when there is no league match being played. Club membership is £40.00 for team players and £20.00 for anyone wanting to play social bowling

Anyone looking for a new social activity, with a reasonable amount of exercise, should look no further, come along to the green and ask to speak to Harold Denton or any club member and you will be made most welcome. We have woods, that’s the name of the things we throw across the green, that you can use and we also supply a good cup of tea or coffee, with a biscuit thrown in for a very reasonable price.

We also welcome new experienced members who are looking to play in any of our teams. A list of both fixtures and results for this season are shown on the next two pages, either give our secretary Harold Denton a ring on 01142 885037 or pop along to the green and have a chat to any of our members.You will be made very welcome and we don,t think you will regret it.

This winter thanks to the generosity of the Ward Alliance Fund, the Provincial Grand Masters Fund and Penistone Round Table, and a lot of fund raising we have managed to build a new pavilion along with 3 new shelters round the green. The old pavilion had served the Bowling Club well for over 40 years, but was leaking water in in various places.

We wish all our members, old and new a very happy and successful season
