Armthorpe Bowls Club Improvements

Craig Bamford By Craig Bamford

As a bowls club we want to make the club facilities more welcoming and increase community use. Improvements to the club house and surrounds will match our two fantastic bowling greens

Armthorpe Delivery stage

pledged of £11,176

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

As a crown green bowls club, we have spent the last 3+ years working very hard to get the bowling greens back to an exceptional standard, and the two greens we have, are now once again regarded as the best in Doncaster, if not the county. Unfortunately, the club house and surrounds are desperately needing a huge update and modernizing to compliment the fantastic greens we have. The club house and surrounds haven't been touch for several years in terms of cosmetic work, and with some TLC could make an huge difference to the whole look of the bowling club. Within the clubhouse, we have a small communal area, with a few tables and chairs, club photos from the last 50+ years, trophies, a small kitchen, toilet facilities and a small storage area. The surrounds of the greens are fairly large and could be used to it's full potential if it was all leveled out, re turfed, wooden stands built and some picnic tables around each green, as well as tarmacking the driveway in front of the clubhouse.

What we'll deliver:

  • Level out and turf surrounds
  • Build and install 4/5 shelters around both greens
  • Build and install picnic benches around both greens
  • New kitchen facilities
  • Decorate clubhouse
  • Update Toilet facilities
  • Create more storage for maintenance equipment
  • tarmac walkway/driveway infront of club house

Why it's a great idea:

Armthorpe welfare bowling club is renowned for having 2 fantastic bowling greens which attracts hundreds and thousands of bowlers and spectators every year for the league and cup matches as well as the 2 massive open competitions we have in memory of 3 players. We believe that if the surrounds of the bowling green and club house could be made that bit more attractive, we could attract many more potential players and spectators and serve a huge service to the local community as somewhere enjoyable to relax, play and watch a very therapeutic game. We raise a lot of money for charities through our open competitions and think if we could get the surrounds as nice as the actual bowling greens we could be well on our way to attracting a lot more people into our game and our busy local community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Clear and level all surrounds
  • Top soil surrounds
  • Build and install 4/5 shelters
  • Turf surrounds
  • Build and install several picnic style tables within the surrounds
  • modernize clubhouse
  • tarmac walkway/driveway in front of clubhouse
