For the competitive among you Ferryhill takes part in many National and County competitions. Our internal club leagues run daily, including weekends so there's plenty to get involved in.

 

But winning is not everything, not by far. We're not 'dog eat dog' at Ferryhill. We're open and friendly. We're renown throughout the County for our friendly and welcoming environment. So if you just want to get out, to meet new people and chat with friends, there's a warm and welcome place waiting for you at Ferryhill Indoor Bowls Club. Just come along one night, you'll see!

 

Membership is  just £10.00 and Rink fees just £3.00 per session. Ferryhill Leisure Centre's legendary bar is on hand with cheap pints and friendly staff.

 

So come along and make a night of it. You'll be very welcome.

It was an emotional moment on a night when drinks were plentiful so not surprising Steven's camera prowess was a bit shaky but the image says it all, including the blur... Even Frank Snaith, presenting, had a tear in his eye.
 
Great to see you Norman, hope you enjoy the whisky and we'll keep you to that promise to keep popping in.
 

Christmas Party Night

After Norman's jig to 'Simply the Best', a couple of other smoothies moved in... The girls have got no chance!

In view, June Cadman, Arthur Cadman, Yvonne Cook, Ray Laing and Margaret Richardson.

Unbeaten in the round robin stages, they then went on to knock out Ferryhill's own Keith Seymour's unbeaten squad to take the title and the biggest money pot.

COVID UPDATE

 

North East local lockdown. Don't panic! WE CAN STILL PLAY BOWLS. The Government has issued clear guidelines detailing what is and what is not allowed during this lockdown. Below is an excerpt from the Gov.uk website....The guidance is clear. Members can also be assured that Ferryhill Indoor bowls is following the guidance from our governing body (EIBA) and going beyond it even. We take player's temp on arrival and we have imposed face coverings in the reception and lounge areas. Jacks and mats are disinfected after every session. All surfaces are disinfected after every session and we have every other recommended measure in place too.

Team sport and physical activity

You can continue to take part in organised sporting or licensed physical activity in groups of more than 6. This can be in any public place – indoors or outdoors – but not in a private outdoor space like a garden or inside a private home.

These activities either need to be organised by a national governing body, club, registered instructor/coach, business or charity, and/or involve someone who has received an official licence to use equipment relevant to the activity. In all cases, the organiser must conduct a risk assessment and ensure compliance with COVID-19 secure guidance.

You should only be playing team sports where the relevant governing body has published guidance on how to do so safely. See a list of team sports governing bodies which have developed guidance. For all other sports, guidance is available from your governing body and details on how to safely undertake this activity within an organised environment.

 

 

14 September 2020

This year's AGM saw one of our biggest turnouts ever. Thanks to everyone for your support. As well, this year we had close to a record number of new members joining/rejoining. Among, them, Billy Maddison... At last, a very welcome return and it'll be great to see the two brothers back on the same rink.

 

Since we couldn't hold our usual presentation ceremony last April we took the chance to present prizes to last year's winners. See the leagues page for all the winners, too many to mention here. Fixtures are also on page now and once we have played some games I'll get the tables on there too.

From stalwart to coolwart!

Winners and runners up of this weekend's 2nd Chance Knockout Tournament. (Left to right... Winners Colin Larcombe and his grandson Conrad Morrison. Runners up Lawrence O'Brien and Joe Hutchinson). Well done lads. It was a marathon of a day so an extra well done to Lorrie who was back half an hour later for his first match in the singles league... He won that too.
