Bowling greensSince the opening of the city's first green in 1892, bowling has been a popular pastime for people in Belfast. We now have 16 bowling greens at 11 locations across the city.
Our greens are open to everyone, both young and old, making bowling an enjoyable way to get active and get outdoors.
Season ticketsThe bowling season runs from mid-April to mid-September.
You can buy your season ticket on Saturday 20 April from bowling pavilions from 11am to 6pm or from your leisure centre from 10am to 4pm. After this date, you'll be able to buy your season ticket during normal opening hours at both bowling pavilions and leisure centres until Saturday 1 June.
