Penistone Bowls Club

Crown Green Bowling – A sport for all ages

Welcome to the Penistone Bowls Club website.  The club has two Crown Bowling Greens and welcomes everyone regardless of ability.  Crown green bowling is a sport that can and will provide many years of enjoyment and interest to players.  All the family can play Crown Green Bowls, from grandchildren to grandparents and it is a great sport for making new friends.  It is a non-contact sport which is enjoyed by all, including people with disabilities.

We are currently open for membership across all ages and abilities.  If you would like to join or just come and try Crown Green Bowls, we would love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves as being part of the local community.  The club welcomes local groups to use our facilities.  Over the past few years Penistone Footpath Runners, Fire Service, Round Table and Gala Committee have all visited us. We can offer an introduction to/demonstration of the game of Crown Green Bowls, provide all the equipment required for bowling and guests can make use of the bar and catering facilities.  If you or your group would like more information please contact us.

As well as teams competing in the Barnsley District, Sheffield Parks and the Dearne & Don Leagues there are lots of opportunities for friendly and social bowling.  Regular open/taster sessions are organised and Penistone U3a hold weekly  sessions using both our greens.

Carling Cup – Penistone Bowling Club hosts an annual open competition, the Carling Cup which offers  prize money of £1,500.   Four qualifying sessions of 16 players are  held over the four Saturday evenings in June.  The qualifying 16 players go through to the final which is normally held on the first Saturday in July.
