The Whitehall Bowling Club


Whitehall Bowling Club was founded in 1885 by a group of local businessmen.  At that time it was called the Whitehall Bowling, Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.  The Croquet lawn eventually became a tennis court but in 1964 it was transformed into a car park.  The Club was then renamed the Whitehall Bowling Club.  The Club is situated in the West End of Aberdeen surrounded by granite terraced houses. 

We encourage new members to join and we have four qualified coaches who run regular coaching sessions throughout the outdoor bowling season teaching the key skills and etiquette of the game. 

The Clubhouse is always busy hosting monthly social events throughout the year.  The Club also has its own dominoes section as well as a group of Mah Jong players who meet up during the winter months. 

The Club is affiliated to the Bon-Accord Bowling Association, the Aberdeen and District Ladies Bowling Association and BowlsScotland.
