Welcome to Greystones Lawn Bowling Club
Our club was founded in 1985 and is situated in a beautiful, tranquil setting by the sea in Greystones just a 2 minute walk from the train station and 5 minutes from the N11.
We cater for bowlers of all ages and abilities all are made equally welcome. Lawn bowls is a competitive sport, but can also be played socially. It is an enjoyable team or singles sport and a great way of enjoying the company of others.
We are always looking for members those of you who are brand new to the game, as well as experienced bowlers to join our club.
One common comment from our bowlers is they wish they had started earlier, so don't waste anymore time and give it a try!
Greystones Bowling Club came into existence on the 4th September 1985. Its first formal committee was elected at a meeting called by Joe Sweeney, a town councillor, on behalf of a number of interested individuals led by Frankie Ward. Joe was elected interim chairman of the group at this meeting. Mr. M. Jacobsen undertook the task of acting secretary.
Shay Ryan of Bray bowling club attended the meeting and assisted those present by answering the many questions posed to him regarding the nature and structure of the sport in Ireland. He also undertook the job of acting as interim liaison officer with the Bowling League of Ireland (BLI). A special formation meeting took place a month later when Michael Seavers took up the position of vice chairman, and effectively the chairmanship, for the following year. Eileen Spurling became treasurer, and Imelda Walsh the club captain.
