A Brief History. The modern history of Malton Bowls Club begins in 1944 When the club moved from its original site on Castle Howard Road where it was part of Malton Quoits & Bowling Club. The quoits club dates back to 1855 but a bowls club wasn't formed until the summer of 1882. In 1944 the bowls club took up residency in what was originally a croquet & archery club on its present site at East Mount. More information on the history of the club, including a photo' gallery can be found Here. The bowls club is now part of Malton Tennis, Bowls, Squash and Racketball club. The first league the club participated in was the Hovingham League (a league which is still contested) but as time has passed we dropped out of that league. We now enter teams in the 'BataGas Triples League', the 'Ryedale & District Veterans League' and from May 2019 the 'Huby Triples league'. All 3 leagues are a triples league format (4 rinks of 3 players per team) with the Batagas league matches taking place on Monday and Friday evenings, the Veterans league matches being held on Wednesday afternoons and the Huby Triples matches played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the summer season (May to September).
