Portland Bowling Green Club

Green Opening

Season 2023

We are looking forward to a new season.

Our usual “spoons” events will continue on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

On Saturdays we will, as usual, be expected to wear Club blazer, tie and white shirt whilst on Tuesdays casual dress is permitted, but no jeans. Informal “roll ups” can take place at any other time.

Whilst Covid has not yet been eradicated we would ask that everyone continues to take care and follow government guidance on this matter.

Many thanks for continuing to keep Portland a safe environment.

About Portland Bowling Green Club

Portland Bowling Green Club was established in the Jesmond area of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1874. It is the county's oldest private bowling club and was a founding member of the Northumberland County Bowling Association.

9 of our members have served as President of the Association and we boast one of the best greens in the county. The club is run by a committee that presides over members who are drawn from all walks of life throughout the North East of England.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality, which is extended to everyone who visits our Club. Both members and visitors are offered a thoroughly enjoyable experience in a near perfect setting, encompassing our clubhouse, green and surrounding gardens.
