The Wakefield Bowls Club was the first section of Wakefield Sports Club, founded in 1854.
The club competes in several local leagues:
Ossett and Horbury (3 teams in various divisions), Mirfield league, Workshops, (2 teams), Leeds South (Wednesday Half Holiday league), Wakefield league (2 Teams), Wakefield Veterans league (3 teams) and the Castleford Ladies league.
Bowling takes place throughout the year (weather permitting) and we are fortunate enough to have a floodlit green. Our pavilion, situated between our greens, contains all the facilities required by a busy club.
