Northumberland Linskill Bowls Club is a friendly and welcoming community based within the beautiful setting of Northumberland Park in North Shields. 

We provide our members with the opportunity to meet new friends, play socially, develop their skills and compete in local and county leagues.

  • New members and new starters are always welcome 
  • Free new starter taster sessions are available from April to September each year
  • Qualified coaches provide expert tuition 

In one form or another we have been Bowling in Northumberland Park since 1889. Northumberland Linskill Bowls Club was formed for the 2007 season after the amalgamation of the old Northumberland Bowling Club (formed 1889) and Linskill Bowling Club (formed 1904).

Club members are welcome to play on most days of the week from April to September. Additionally should members wish they may play competitively against other clubs in local and county leagues. Further should members wish to participate in County or National competitions we will support their entries.

The 2024 leagues played by Northumberland Linskill are listed below.

  • Knott Cup on Monday evenings (Tynemouth & District league)
  • Clegg League Div. 3 on Wednesday evenings (Northumberland County league)
  • Hateley League on Thursday afternoons (Over 50s senior league)
  •  Public Utilities on Thursday evenings 

We have a new pavilion which opened at the start of the 2015 season which, together with the green, is shared with another bowling club. Members are welcome to use the clubhouse facilities including changing area, kitchen and toilets.

Throughout the outdoor season in addition to playing in leagues we organise practice sessions, informal social bowling events (jumbles) and play in-club competitions. 

If you wish to join our community or simply arrange a free taster session you can contact us by one of the following methods:
