On a sunny Saturday morning with the hum of the lawnmower cutting the green in preparation for the afternoon’s match & the birds singing in the background, is a very special place. It is one of those magic moments when all is right with the world. Our founders chose well.
We are always open to new members & would love you to come along, rollup & try our bowling green. We welcome bowlers of all ages. If you are a complete beginner & need a word of encouragement or an experienced player looking for competition you will get it in Blackrock. Come along we have something for everyone.
