The Bowling Section was formed in 1974 becoming a full blown section in in 1988. Short mat bowling was introduced in 1990 providing the section with year round activity.

The Bowling Section is a very friendly social group and any member of the Bookdale Club wishing to join them may be certain of a warm welcome, even those with no previous experience of bowling.

Newcomers may initially borrow bowls belonging to the Section before purchasing their own. Instruction and help getting started in playing both indoor and outdoor bowls is available.

Short mat bowling takes place in the Jubilee Room from October to April on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday afternoons and Sunday mornings.

Crown Green bowling is played at Norbury Amalgamated Sports Club  April to September at 1.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and at 10am Sunday mornings.

Apart from the usual bowling sessions, the Section also enjoy many other activities throughout the year including fun bowling days, coffee mornings and an annual day trip to Prestatyn for long mat bowls.
