The vote saw a significant change for the bowling club

  • An extraordinary general meeting was held to make a decision.
  • Voting saw over 500 members in attendance.
  • Over 2/3s of the vote went in favour meaning the motion passed.

In almost its 100 year history Ilkley Bowling Club have now allowed women to join as members of the club.

All 1,700 members were invited the general meeting that took place at King's Hall.

506 members turned out and 377 of them were in favour of admitting women.

This meant that the two-thirds majority required was reached.

The result means that women can apply for full membership of the club from July 1st, but they will have to wait until the next renewal date of April 2021 for their applications to be approved by the committee.
