Thistleyfield Bowling Club welcomes you to our website.

Take a few minutes to look at our site and see what goes on. Our Club is owned by Rochdale MBC but we take great pride in making it a thriving and friendly place for all to enjoy bowling.

This is a public bowling green and available for all casual bowlers at the times stated except when there is team bowling at home as shown below.

Mens Vets team plays alternate Tuesday afternoon.

Ladies team plays alternate Tuesday evenings.

All new members welcome. Annual fee £8.00 (yes £8.00!!). 

If you haven't bowled before we are happy to teach you.

We've also found a video of 'How to play bowls' on You Tube. It's very informative and a good starter. Take a look on the LINKS page.

Bowling is not a sport just for retired people. We have an excellent cross section of members of all ages. ( 8 to 80 )

There are links on the links page to team websites and to British Crown Green Bowling Association for rules and difference between Crown and Flat Green bowling.

On our Opening day we are having this as a day when anyone can come and bowl.

This includes anyone who hasn't bowled before. We look forward to welcoming you all.
