Halifax Bowling Club is blessed in many ways and one of them is having two outside Crown Greens. This enables the club to put out 29 various mixed, ladies only and men only teams into 8 different leagues every week, 6 days of the week.
There is also ample time for social bowling and improvers bowling in and amongst the league bowling. We are also popular with local and Yorkshire leagues as a venue for all types of competition, usually at the weekend.
Our greens are open all year, weather permitting, and this has enabled us to start a new Outdoor Winter League, once a week, which is proving very popular with teams of 4 players.
We are always on the lookout for new club members and players so why don't you come along to view our excellent facilities and meet new friends.
