Hawkhead Bowling Club was founded in 1921. It was originally named Hawkhead Recreation Club hosting various sports and this remained the case until 1963, when, as bowling had become the predominant sport it was decided that the name be changed to Hawkhead Bowling Club. From that time the club has grown substantially and we have 2 full size greens and excellent club house facilities consisting of a lounge, large hall and small function suite. Click the Club History link for a more comprehensive look at our history.
Hawkhead is an equal opportunities club, where all full ladies and gents members have equal rights within the club. We have an Executive Committee which is responsible for the general running of the club including the building, greens, finances, memberships etc, but excludes bowling matters, which is the responsibility of the individual bowling section committees. The club has 2 bowling sections i.e. Gents & Ladies.
The Gents Section is affiliated to the Bowls Scotland who host national competitions, the Renfrewshire Bowling Association (RBA) who host competitions at a county level and Paisley & District Bowling Association (P&DBA), who run the local league and cup competitions. Our Ladies Section is also affiliated to the Scottish Womans Bowling Association (SWBA), while the Paisley Veterans Bowling Association (PVBA) host the majority of the Gents Veterans league and cup games.
We hold many social events, where top class acts perform regularly. Our hall accomodates up to 90 people and often hosts private functions for members and members friends or relations. Applications for the use of the hall are made via a club member and vetted by the Executive Committee. We do not host 18th birthday parties.
