Description:

Inverclyde Leisure Indoor Bowling Club requires new lights/lighting and carpet. This can only be achieved by Inverclyde Leisure being afforded a long term lease to allow capitalisation of the assets etc over a longer period of time.

The bowling club has produced a Scottish Bowling Singles Champion (youngest ever) with approx 30 caps for Scotland and other younger members who have been capped for Scotland. As well as the normal competitive bowling, the club is very much a Community facility which provides facilities for disabled and blind bowlers. It is also a 'meeting place' for many senior citizens who play in the mornings and remain to meet with friends, but without this facility they would probably remain at home.

The Club has welcomed an increasing membership since we offered various pricing breaks to encourage more people to take up the sport at any level. A new carpet and new lighting, within an upgraded facility, allows the Club to attract more National, possibly International bowling tournaments.

The Club has tried previously with a submission to host a British Bowling Tournament, but lost out due to the deterioration in both the carpet and lighting. The Inverclyde community cannot afford to lose this club.

Thank you!
