We need your support
Denby Dale Bowling Club was created in 1920 through the generous donation of land and the building of a club house by local employers. That was 100 years ago and the image below says a lot about the time. It was an all male club and they dressed up to play. Hats were vital.
Now, our lovely little club needs funds to improve our small club house and ground.
We raise all our own funding through members subscriptions and two fundraising days. We organise two annual competitions for ladies pairs and mixed pairs and we get people from all over Yorkshire and even into Lancashire.
However, for the extra cash needed for new floodlights and for improvements to the club house, we have decided to offer people the chance to be a part of the next 100 years of the club.
In return for donations, no matter how small or large, your name will be placed on a roll of thanks, to be kept at the club in perpetuity. So grateful crown green bowlers in the distant future will know the names of those who helped us at this time.

About the fundraiser
I started bowling 9 years ago. I've loved it from the beginning. It's played in all weathers on widely varying greens and very different opponents. It has been played for hundreds of years, in Denby Dale for almost a hundred years . It will continue on after we've gone. Thanks.
