Sandal Bowling Club

The Club is situated within its own fenced site surrounded by large trees, bushes and gardens, all of which are maintained by the Club. The members of the Club have, over the years, financed and provided all the facilities which can be seen at the Green. We have a permanent pavilion which was erected in 1970. a grant from the Wakefield Council enabled the installation of a permanent ramp to enable disabled members and spectators to easily access the green. MEMBERSHIP The Club currently has 185 members - 10 Juniors, 126 Playing and 27 Non-playing social members, 8 Life members and 14 Honorary members. The ages of our members range from 8 years to 80+ years. Sex, race, colour or religion is no bar to membership. The Club is an active competitive club with a total of eleven teams playing in local leagues, one junior, eight senior and two veterans. As well as being an active competitive club we also provide a community focus for many of our playing and social members with  social bowling, coffee mornings, weekly whist drives and bridge matches all of which are well attended. The Club were the first Club in Wakefield to create a Junior Section of both girls and boys aged 8 to 18 years, and its Junior Team now plays in the Heavy Woollen Junior League. Currently some 5 senior members are involved in regular weekly training, coaching and practice sessions with the junior section, supervising and transporting these players to matches.
