Egremont’s public bowling green was opened in 1982 and is located at the north end of the town opposite the cemetery with access from Howbank Road. The green is on land leased by the Egremont Town Council from Copeland Borough Council.
Day-to-day running and maintenance of the green is carried out by volunteers from the membership of the Egremont Town Bowling Club.
It is open for practice and casual play from 2pm to 6pm, 7 days a week from mid April to mid September and everyone is welcome. In-house competitions and ‘Friendlies’ between Egremont and other local clubs take place at weekends. On Tuesday evenings the Club competes in a Mixed Triples League against other West Cumbria Bowling Clubs.
If you would like to try having a go at bowling all you need are some flat soled footware ie trainers or plimsols – if not the club can provide canvas overshoes. We can also be flexible on opening times.
The aim of the Bowling Club is to provide local people of all ages with the means to keep active, make new friends and enjoy a game of bowls in a friendly atmosphere. For younger people the club provides a stepping stone into a sport in which they could excel. In 2004 one of our younger members Stephanie Moffatt of Cleator Moor became County Champion at the age of 12 after only been playing for 3 years.
