A friendly bowls club featuring six outdoor rinks for Spring and Summerand indoor short mat bowls for the Autumn and Winter seasons.
Welcome to Riccall Bowling Club’s website. We are a friendly club of some 30-40 members that operates all the year round with an outdoor season running from mid-April until mid-September and Indoor Short Mat sessions from October to March.Bowlers of all experience or none (we can teach and loan you equipment if necessary) of all ages are welcome. As a Club we aim to offer both social and League bowling to our members. During the outdoor season we run Club nights on a Thursday to encourage social bowling to gain experience of the sport. If you want to be competitive, in addition to our League sides, we have our own internal competitions. We also have social and practice sessions for the short mat format game on Wednesday afternoons from September until March.We run teams in the Selby Fours and Triples, Selby Ladies, Goole. and York Private Clubs Leagues in the outdoor season, whilst we have two teams playing in the Selby Short Mat Fours and Triples Leagues during the rest of the year. Also we participate in knockout cup competitions as well as having occasional friendly games with other local and touring side clubs.Season 2021 This timetable is subject to alteration at short noticeSubject to final confirmation because of both work to eliminate the amount of moss in the greens and government restrictions, the outdoor season will open on the first weekend of May.Until June 20th: Play will be controlled via the Club’s Booking system (see website Riccallbowls.co.uk) with only three of the six rinks available for a maximum of six players on each.
