Flintshire Indoor Bowling Club

About Us

Formed in 2001, Flintshire Indoor Bowling Club had its roots firmly based at Sealand Indoor Bowling Club from the 1980's until 2003 when the indoor bowling ceased to play. A number of initiatives by various groups of players had continually argued the case for the creation of a new indoor bowling facility. In 2007 a public meeting of interested bowlers was called at Northop Hall Cricket Club at the behest of County Councillor Mel Higham, himself a pro-active administrator within Crown Green Bowls and a supporter of bowls in general. The result of this meeting with representatives from Flintshire County Council in attendance was the formation of Flintshire Indoor Bowls Association, a fully constituted body who could meet formally with Flintshire County Council and pursue the objective of establishing an indoor bowling facility.
After 4 years of consultation with Flintshire County Council, an indoor bowling facility was included in the re-development plans for the Flint Pavilion Leisure Centre, later to be renamed The Jade Jones Pavilion.
The bowls hall opened in July 2012 and photographs of the build process can be found in the Photograph gallery.
