|A brief history of the Club|
Since 1898 bowls has been played on the present site. Ryde Bowls Club was opened in 1906, and is now an amalgamation of Ryde Municipal Bowling Club and Ryde Bowling Club.
In 2003 the old wooden pavilion was replaced by a purpose built clubhouse, funded largely by Sport England Lottery Fund. The new clubhouse caters for all the needs of the club.
