WELCOME TO THE HOLMESDALE BOWLING CLUB WEBSITE
The purpose of this site is to introduce our Club to you, provide sufficient information to encourage you to visit the Club, and hopefully to join us.
Pictured below is our clubhouse and green.
The bowling club is on a ground shared with Holmesdale Cricket Club, beside the A25 road, Worships Hill, Riverhead, Sevenoaks, Kent TN13 2AR.
Our club was established in 1912, and as far as we know has existed continuously ever since. It is an outdoor club, playing from the end of April to the end of September each year. Originally there were four rinks, adjoining a tennis court - which would have been in the foreground of this picture. Then the tennis court was removed and our present Rinks Five and Six laid in its place. We have a varied social calendar with additional events taking place during the winter months. Information about these events can be found on the SOCIAL NEWS page when they have been organised. Details of how contact the Club and its Officials are on The CLUB CONTACTS page.
THE CLUBHOUSE TELEPHONE IS NOT REGULARLY MONITORED FROM THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER TO THE END OF APRIL. If you want to make contact with the club during this time, please ring anyone listed in the CONTACTS page.
OUR CLUBHOUSE PAVILION IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR HIRE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, AND HAS PROVED TO BE POPULAR WITH U3A GROUPS. BETWEEN THE PAVILION AND THE ROAD THERE IS OFF-STREET PARKING FOR ABOUT 3 DOZEN CARS ACCESSED FROM THE MAIN ENTRANCE. PLEASE CONTACT OUR CLUB SECRETARY, Mrs BRENDA BENNETT, FOR INFORMATION ON THE CURRENT HIRE RATES AND AVAILABILITY.
