Debdale Bowling and Social Club is a successful bowling club with a long history.
We have two bowling greens and a pavilion that has recently undergone renovation and modernisation with more work due to take place.
Our annual membership is £12 and this gives you access to both greens and all the facliaties of the club house, also you can join the teams if you so wish too. We have over 60 members and all people over 18 are welcome to join our club. Amongst other activities, most members enjoy playing in competitive teams during the bowling season, which runs from Mid-March throught to September
We have three ladies' teams who play every Thursday afternoon and five men's teams. Two men's teams are played on Monday afternoon, two on Wednesday afternoon and one on Friday afternoon.
We also have a mixed gender team on Friday evening. These teams compete against other clubs in the local Greater Manchester area - both home and away.
As well as our team playing members, we have members who just enjoy bowling at Debdale. This involves playing other members socially, developing their bowling skills and just having fun. Some of these members eventually join teams but others simply come for the enjoyment of bowling or to socialise.
As a club, we want the local community and other interested parties to get involved so we organise a series of social bowling days to introduce non-bowlers to the sport.
These usually take place in the summer to encourage new members and draw the community together. To support these events we provide all necessary equipment and even some light refreshments!
To take this further, next season we are planning to buy new junior bowling equipment so we can encourage primary and secondary schools to use our facilities and introduce a new wave of people to the sport of Crown Green Bowling.
