Fitz Park was opened in 1882 and although it is assumed that two bowling greens were then laid there is no documentary evidence of this. There used to be two separate bowling clubs in the park – Greta Side and Fitz Park No.1, both being admitted to the then Cumberland Bowling Association in 1930. In 1972, because of dwindling membership, the two clubs joined and Fitz Park Bowling Club was formed. The Greta Side green is the original green and is now a public green.

 

The club currently participates in four leagues – the West Cumbria Men's Fours League, The Eden Valley Mixed Fours League, the Eden Valley Ladies Fours League and the Eden Valley Mixed Triples League – and has many internal competitions, though the needs of non-competitive bowlers are also well provided for. 

 

As at April 2018 the club's bowling membership stands at 73, comprising 49 males and 24 females. The club has 5 junior members under the age of 18. In addition, the club has 67 social members.

 

The club boasts one of the finest, if not the finest, greens in the county, thanks to an enormeous amont of hard work which has been carried out to the green in recent years. Sadly the clubhouse was badly flooded in 2005, 2007 and 2015 but on all these occasions, the resilient spirit of the club's members ensured that the clubhouse was fully repaired and restored.

 

Being located in a very popular tourist area and only a five minutes walk from town the club is often frequented by touring teams and visitors. 

 

Regards Vic Emmerson 

The club is situated in the beautiful surroundings of Fitz Park in Keswick, which itself is located amidst some of the most magnificent scenery in the English Lake District.
