The club was formed in 1925 and plays on the bowling green in King George V Park on King Harald Street in Lerwick. This is the only lawn bowls green in Shetland and, we believe, it is the most northerly outdoor bowling green in the world.

The green is open from late April until early September and competitions are held every weekend and some mid-week evenings. There is always opportunity for practice or to learn how to play the game, if you have never tried before. Bowls, shoes and other equipment is available to borrow. We welcome visitors to Shetland to play on the green but contact will have to be made with a club member to make the arrangements.

If you wish to try bowls or to become a club member, contact any of the people listed on the contact page or speak to anyone you see playing on the green in summer.

Our 2022 outdoor season is from 1st May to 3rd September.

Hat night is Tuesday evenings at 6.55pm.

(Starting from the first Tuesday after the "Opening of the Green")

(6.25pm during August and September due to available daylight).

The game is over 18 ends which is completed in approx. 2 hours.

The cost is £2.50 per person.

Saturday afternoons will mainly be club competitions starting at 2pm.
