Deane Park Bowls Club was originally an indoor short mat bowls club based in Deane Park Hall, South Ruislip. In 1979 the decision was taken to form an outdoor bowls club and use the green situated in Bessingby Park, Ruislip Manor.
We are delighted that, thanks to the London Borough of Hillingdon, we had a much needed, new clubhouse, for the start of our 2015 season.
We pride ourselves on being a very inclusive and friendly club, all are welcome from absolute beginners, improvers to experienced bowlers. For beginners all you need is a pair of flat soled shoes (no heel), there will be a set of bowls for you to use and plenty of help to get you started. Bowls is an excellent game for gentle exercise, out in the fresh air, amongst friendly and companionable people.
Come along and give us a try.
We have informal Roll-Ups every Monday evening from 4:45pm. and every Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 2:00pm during the season, which runs from the last week in April through to the end of September.
We ask all members wishing to play in the Roll-Ups to be at the green for 2:00pm. for afternoons and 4:45pm. for evenings, to help in setting-up the greens and also to give the Captain time to sort teams for the session's play.
We play 18 ends with a break at 9 ends for a welcome cup of tea or coffee.
Many of our members also play for the Club in our fixtures throughout the season, with matches played around the various clubs in the Hillingdon/Harrow area. However, there is no obligation to play in the matches, both home and away, but we hope that you will.

90th Birthday Party
We had the great pleasure today of holding a slightly early 90th birthday bash for two very special ladies - Joan Mound and Joyce Roffe.
Rita Glynn took great care in getting our ladies to the event as it was a surprise party. We had a brilliant turnout of old and present members and it was wonderful to see some of our veteran bowlers all now in their 80's and 90's and looking amazing. (There must be something in this bowling if you age so well).
Rita's daughter made the birthday cake and everyone lent a hand in decorating the hall and providing a buffet tea. Len presented a bouquet to each of our birthday girls and there were a number of cards and presents from various friends. What a wonderful way to start the new year. - Janet

2016 Presentation Dinner
The presentation dinner at the Post Office Social Club yesterday was again a memorable evening. Deane Park Social Club supremo Ray Snook together with Janet and Linda arranged the evening with the usual efficiency and fifty five Deane Park members enjoyed the first two courses...and then there was a power cut the lights went out!
The remaining part of the evening, the raffle, sweet course and presentations were
spent romantically by candlelight. Chairman Eric Holland thanked everyone for coming
and gave a special welcome to our "young lady" social members. An extract of the Ray
Snook speech (courtesy of Janet Gibson) can be seen by clicking
and a list of the 2016 winners can be seen by clicking HERE .
