Vale of Leven Bowling Club Facilities
The Bowling Greens
The Vale of Leven Bowling Club has two full sized greens of six rinks. In recent years these have been playing as well as any in our district. Our green keeping staff and the green ranger work hard to maintain this standard and we have been rewarded by being asked to host several important County and other representative matches.
From the upstairs balcony spectators can get a great view of play
With our large membership the greens can be busy in the evenings during the peak months of May and June. To facilitate the organisation of the many club ties that take place we use a rink booking system with two games scheduled on each rink each evening with the first house at 18:30 and second house at 20:00 or whenever the rink becomes available.
We also have some great facilities for use all the year round within our clubhouse ...
At the Vale we enjoy some of the best club facilities in the area. Our well stocked Oak Tree bar offers a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks.
We also have a large, fully equipped gents' locker room, an office and a games room. The ladies section have their own, separate locker room and changing facilities.
Our games room offers a full sized snooker table, a pool table and darts. We have two large screen televisions in the lounge ensuring that everyone has a great views of all the important football matches and sporting events.
We also have a large director's room, which has a hospitality bar. This can also be used for smaller functions.
Upstairs we have a large function suite complete with another fully equipped bar (see separate feature on function room). This can be hired for private functions such as parties, dances, weddings, funerals or other gatherings. Any member can hire the hall on your behalf so if you need it for a function contact a member. We also have a large directors' room (for our large directors!). This has a hospitality bar used for entertaining guests from other clubs. This can also be used for small, private functions. Our modern kitchen facilities allow all sorts of meals to be prepared and served from the large kitchen area.
During the winter months our Social Committee organise cabarets and dances. We also play host to the Alexandria Burns Club St. Andrew's Night celebration at the end of November and we host our own very popular Burns Supper, at the beginning of February.
