Delivering a bowl at Ryedale Indoor Bowls Club


Summer season 2017
We will run social sessions throughout the summer on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10.30am -12.30pm. Both members and visitors are welcome.

Winter season 2017/18
The next season will start in early September. League matches will begin on Monday 11th September and continue through to Friday 22 December.

The club will be open for spells on
Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th September, morning and evening
Friday 8th September, morning only
for payment of fees and free ‘roll-up’.

Entry forms for the new leagues are on the notice-boards and entry closes at Noon on Friday 8th September.

Christmas break 2017/8
A few comments have been about the arrangements for the Christmas break. There seems no solution that satisfies everyone’s needs. Taking the holiday break as including both Christmas Eve and January 2nd, the holiday spans 10 days. That is a tight fit if we take a two-week break but many members would object if we created a three-week break. The sensible solution seems to be that we are flexible. So although leagues are scheduled to end on 22nd December teams not wanting to play close to Christmas are encouraged to re-arrange matches. The club will be open on the mornings of Wednesday 3rd through to Friday 5th January for catch-up matches plus roll-up. (Please note there are no free sessions.)

Proposed events: We are hoping to arrange four friendly matches during the 2017/8 season. Before Christmas we hope to play Harrogate and Hornsea and after Christmas Hornsea and Yorkshire Patrons. We also hope to re-run our popular Race Night in October. Monday Night Bingo sessions will continue as normal.
