Craigmillar Park Bowling Club is long established and located in the Newington area of South Edinburgh. It has one of the best greens in Edinburgh and the Club is noted for its friendliness. There are vacancies for new members, women, men and juniors.
The bowling club opened this year on Friday 29th May with the easing up of lockdown and the start of outdoor sport. There were a lot of preparations to comply with the rules and keep members safe. Despite the restrictions it has been great to get out on the green and see friends again.

Championship Finals, 21st July 2019
Two excellent matches took place on Sunday afternoon, with Walter Vassie playing Peter Lindsay and Sheena Stenhouse playing Christine Simpson. The spectators enjoyed 2 superb close games, possibly the closest they have ever been with almost nothing to separate the contestants. There had to be two winners however, and in the mens' game Peter narrowly beat Walter 21-20, and in the ladies game it was Christine who won 21-19. Both are first time Club champions.
After the presentation of the trophies the ladies Committee provided a strawberry tea with wine for everyone present.
Congratulations to the two new champions Peter and Christine!
XILINX Day Out
On August 1st our Club was very pleased to host an afternoon of bowls for Xilinx, a local computer software firm. We provided enough bowls for 48 people, most of whom had never bowled before, and after a tentative start they had great fun discovering how difficult it is to bowl!
They brought their own refreshments and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, especially as the weather was so good. By the end (about 7pm) there was a hard core of enthusiasts left on the green who asked if they could put up a team for a challenge game against our Club! We hope this will take place later this month or September.
