Welcome to the new website of Flintshire Indoor Bowling Club.
See 'Downloads' for a document outlining Ffrith Bowling Club's winter league programme.
We met with Aura Leisure recently and were informed that due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Aura had reviewed their options for any future opening of their leisure centres. For financial reasons their immediate focus was to open the gymnasium as this activity was the biggest revenue earner. Given that social distancing would constrain the amount of equipment in the current gymnasium area, the decision to utilise the indoor bowling hall as a temporary gymnasium had been taken.
As a result there will be no indoor bowling activity for the 2020/2021 season, a commitment has been given to install a new indoor bowling carpet in readiness for the 2021/2022 season.
This situation is concerning to us all especially in the longer term as we worry that Aura renege on their commitment to reinstall the indoor carpet. The letter from Aura in regard of the above can be viewed in the 'Downloads' page.
See Picture gallery (2020) for photographs of the Indoor Bowls Hall being converted to a gymnasium.
