Larne Bowling Club
The formation of Larne Bowling and Lawn Tennis club started with meetings in 1907 when the current site was offered with
a 2000 year lease and on 9th November 1908 the Larne Bowling and Lawn Tennis club came into being.
The Larne green was laid in 1909 using fine West Cumberland Turf laid in a diagonal pattern. The green was a good one
right from the start and with careful maintenance remains one of the best bowling surfaces in Ireland.
Ladies are first recorded as playing bowls in 1937 then in 1999 the club rules were changed and the Lady bowlers were granted the same rights and privileges as their male counterparts and they have not looked back since. The Ladies Bowling Section is well organised and bristling with enthusiasm. They run a popular rinks day on Tuesdays and field a senior and a junior team in the N.I.W.P.G.L.
The club has been fortunate in obtaining £500K from Sport N.I. to develop and improve the clubhouse facilities and work was completed in 2009. This is part of the Club's five year sports developement plan which includes encouraging new players,developement of existing players, coaching courses, evening and weekend bowling, facilities for the local schools, encouraging young people and facilities for the disabled.
