Since the foundation of the Club in 1954 the members have established an excellent green and a spacious and well equipped
Wollaton Bowling Club is a
flourishing mixed private Club set in the village of Wollaton an area in the west of the City of Nottingham.
It is home to Wollaton Hall with its museum, deer park, lake, walks and golf
Wollaton Park housed prisoners of war
and US troops during the World Wars. The picturesque Wollaton Village has
remained relatively unchanged over the past few hundred years and is dominated
by the Admiral Rodney Public House and the Anglican Church of St. Leonard’s
dating back to the 1200s. It also features historic cottages and water pump.
The village was swallowed up by the suburbanisation of Nottingham and is now
considered part of the Greater Nottingham Metropolitan area.
The Club is sited on land that was
sold to the village for sports and recreational activities by the Middleton
family just after the 2nd World War. The green is only a few hundred yards away
from Wollaton Hall and Deer Park which was home to the Middleton family up
until it was sold to Nottingham City Council. The Club Badge depicts the
Elizabethan architecture of Wollaton Hall and the Middleton Coat of Arms.
