Club History

The first greens were laid down in White Rock Gardens in 1916, in which year the White Rock Club became established there. From the outset, the success of the new venture must have been evident and expansion was soon planned. A note by “Vigilant” in the “Observer” issue for 18th June 1921, referring to the formation of Rosemount states that “a second club should prove an advantage all round, particularly when the third green is ready for use, which will not be before the Tournament, late in August”.

Further expansion of the Bowls Facilities was progressive culminating in 8 Greens being laid with a total of 48 Rinks in a glorious and picturesque setting on the cliffs overlooking the sea, and has helped to make the town one of the leading Bowls Centres in the country. Unfortunately of the 8 Greens & 48 Rinks that were laid, there are now only 4 Greens with 24 Rinks still in use today.

However we still go on and even though membership has depleted somewhat from its heyday’s Rosemount Bowls Club is proud to have been associated with White Rock Gardens in Hastings for over 90 Years, lets hope we can make the 100, and the Club still has a good relationship with other clubs old and new in our fixture list as well as being able to re-enter back into the County fold. We also welcome anyone that would like to come along and join us no matter of age or gender.
