Welcome to Gilmerton Bowling Club


Welcome to Gilmerton Bowling Club.

Established in 1892 at 90 Ravenscroft Street in Gilmerton village south of the City of Edinburgh, Gilmerton Bowling Club is a modern bowling and social club with much to offer members and visitors alike.

We have over 500 members including Mens, Ladies, Senior and Juniors sections with more than 200 players actively participating in bowling events within the club from April through to September each year. In addition the club is proud to host two of the most prestigious tournaments in the Midlothian Bowls calendar, the Eddie Adams Memorial Singles and the David Wales Pairs.

The club maintains a busy social and entertainments calendar with theme nights, ladies days, sportman's dinners and family days arranged throughout the year.  Every Saturday evening there is a cabaret or band appearing in our Function Hall with Bingo, Tote and Treasure Chest prizes also on offer. Our weekly Treasure Chest regularly reaches four figures.  

Our Function Hall can be hired for private functions when not in use by the club however, this must be booked by a member. We can provide assistance in organising catering and disco's for your event.  Kitchen facilities are also available for those who wish.

We can provide a tasteful, professional and discrete option for Funeral teas and can offer a bespoke solution to suit your requirements.

For booking enquiries, please contact the Club Secretary.
