A friendly bowls club featuring six outdoor rinks for Spring and Summerand indoor short mat bowls for the Autumn and Winter seasons.
Welcome to Riccall Bowling Club’s website. We are a friendly club of some 30-40 members that operates all the year round with an outdoor season running from mid-April until mid-September and Indoor Short Mat sessions from October to March.Bowlers of all experience or none (we can teach and loan you equipment if necessary) of all ages are welcome. As a Club we aim to offer both social and League bowling to our members. During the outdoor season we run Club nights on a Thursday to encourage social bowling to gain experience of the sport. If you want to be competitive, in addition to our League sides, we have our own internal competitions. From Autumn 2018 as part of the indoor season, we will add social and practice sessions for the short mat format game.We run teams in the Selby Fours and Triples, Selby Ladies, Goole. Challis and York Private Clubs Leagues in the outdoor season, whilst we have two teams playing in the Selby Short Mat Fours and Triples Leagues during the rest of the year. Also we participate in knockout cup competitions as well as having occasional friendly games with other local and touring side clubs.KEY DATES - in 2018 we are holding our Open Day on 21st April from 2 p.m. and a Family bowling day on June 23rd from 2 p.m.. On 24th June from 10.30 a.m. we hold our big event of the year called a Whistle Stop, at which clubs from a wide area come to Riccall for an all-day open competition. 2017 saw twenty teams taking part in this, and it is well worth coming along to see the action. It is not unknown too, for Riccall sides to play in County run events.All our games are shown in the FIXTURE section of this website as well as being publicised on the Clubhouse and Green entrance noticeboards.
