Thank you to all our members for your continuing support of Selby Bowling Club. The club remains in a strong position but has faced many financial challenges over the last three years, with more expected in the immediate future. As we have seen regular increases from all our suppliers and utilities, costs to the club continue to rise. Therefore, membership and bowling session fees will increase from 1st September 2023.


The club continues to provide good value to our members when compared to other sporting and social venues and is mindful of providing a full range of activities for everyone’s enjoyment; indoor, outdoor and short mat bowling, snooker, bingo and events in the lounge and marquee (parties, dinners, christenings etc. all of which contribute significantly to overall income).


The Sunday Lunch service and Friday Fish ‘n’ Chips remain as popular as ever and booking is recommended, although the kitchen is open for lunches every day. Additionally, the themed food nights have proved very popular, so if you haven’t done so already, why not give them a try?


Club Security

Security concerns have been raised recently where non-members have been in the club using the facilities. This may have been an innocent occurrence but we need to ensure the safety of the premises, staff, members and equipment and therefore encourage you all to carry your membership card to prove membership when requested, if you are not known to the bar and reception staff. CCTV is in operation on the premises and is checked. If you have any security concerns please notify Paula, Sue or any committee member as soon as possible for follow up. Visitors are welcome but must be signed in and paid for by a current member.


Membership Form

Fees are due by the 1st September but can be paid during the month. All indoor league players should have renewed their membership and paid their league registration before their first indoor game. Membership not renewed by the 30th September will be assumed to have ceased. Please ensure you complete the membership form fully and accurately, to assist in updating club records.  Also ensure completion of the privacy section, signature and date. All information is important, but emergency contact detail is especially so, as the club has needed this at short notice recently when members have been taken poorly. Membership cards should be brought in (or sent in) with your membership payment so that your card can be updated for 2023/24.


Dress Code for Indoor and Outdoor Bowling

Bowling members are reminded that a dress code exists at the club as there has been a noticeable decline in adherence to the standard of clothing required. Bowling shoes are required to protect the indoor carpet and outdoor green from damage. Ordinary outdoor shoes/trainers are not acceptable.

Indoor session fees will increase to £3.80 per 2-hour session from 1st September 2023. Locker fees remain at £3 per locker per year. Indoor league registration fee is £4.00 per player per league.

Indoor bowlers are strongly reminded that use of Grippo is forbidden as it damages the carpet.


Outdoor Bowling

Thank you to those who volunteered to assist with the green and who have maintained it in a good condition under “retired” Brian’s supervision. Outdoor bowling will continue into September and bowlers will be advised when the green will close. If you are interested in being the greenkeeper or know someone who would like to do this then please let Paula know.

Outdoor bowling is from 1pm each day but earlier start times can be arranged with the greenkeeper.

Outdoor green fees will increase to £2.00 per player for Ladies, Gents and Private Clubs leagues.


Short Mat

Selby Working Men’s Club team will be moving from their current location to bowl at the club for the winter season. The Short Mat club night will be Thursday and league matches are due to start at the beginning of October. Please see Geoff Whitehead if you are interested in joining or having a go.



The Snooker room has three snooker tables available for social and league snooker. The leagues are due to start in September.


Groups and Classes

Several U3A and other activity groups use facilities at the club. These range from Spanish to Guitar to Family History to Chess and other things in between. If you are interested in joining any of these please contact U3A directly or ask Paula for contact details for the activity concerned.


Volunteer Auditors Required

The auditing process takes place 2 or 3 times per year, to check the validity of the committee procedures and cash processes and is a voluntary role. If you are interested and able to assist, please let Paula or Sue know.


Club Successes

Gemma Broadhead represented England in the Learning Disability International Series at York, winning a Gold medal. Well done, Gemma.

The Outdoor Men’s Four of David Simpson, Eamonn Addison, Steve Packer and John Phillips has beaten stiff competition to qualify for the National Finals at Leamington Spa in August and are in the County Final. Selby has been represented before but not for nearly 40 years. Good luck guys.

An Outdoor Ladies Triple of Brenda Barber, Angie Laskey and Bev Emmett has reached the County Final of the Benevolent Triples. We wish them good luck too.
