A VINTAGE GEM IN THE HEART OF NEWCASTLE

Summerhill Bowling CluB waS offiCially opened on 17 July 1916 aS a private memBerS’ Bowling CluB in the Summerhill area of newCaStle upon tyne.

Off-the-beaten-track yet just a stone’s throw from the city centre, Summerhill Bowling Club is a beautiful indoor and outdoor venue for events with a difference. Bursting with vintage character and charm, Summerhill Bowling Club is the perfect place to host a range of events and activities, from weddings to meetings.

In 2010, a group of residents discovered that Summerhill Bowling Club was set to close. Unable to bear the thought of losing such a loved local landmark, The Friends of Summerhill charity formed, bought the club and took it into community ownership. The result: a newly-renovated pavilion and two verdant lawns, licensed and now available for hire.

Summerhill offers the beauty of a natural setting and the practicality of a city-centre location; a grand Georgian square in a conservation area, just a short walk from Newcastle’s Central Station.

Frequented in years gone by sporting legends like WG Grace, Len Shackleton and Jackie Milburn, who all played bowls at the club, Summerhill retains a sense of history and nostalgia you’ll find hard not to love.

Both lawns (35mx35m each) are available for hire and perfect for pitching a marquee, gazebo, or even a stage. Why not borrow bowls or croquet equipment for games that will take you back to the vintage days of Summerhill.
