    On 5th January, 1872, a small group of businessmen from the Marchmont and Grange area met with the express purpose of forming a bowling club. The name was agreed and five of their number were charged with finding a site for Whitehouse and Grange Bowling Club The site was found in Hope Terrace but the construction of the Green was delayed as a result of the formation of a new tramway to run along Hope Terrace and Clinton Road.

    The new Green was opened on Friday 23rd May, 1873 with the original clubhouse extended in time for the opening of the 1912 season designed by the renowned Grange resident  architect Sir  Washington George Browne. The Clubhouse and Green continues to be enjoyed by club members  This year we celebrated our 150th anniversary and published a new history of the club that can be viewed and downloaded from our website
