Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

Although there is no official documentation, correspondence suggests that the popular Cleveland Bowls Club was formed in 1941 with two greens and a machinery shed built over a three year period. Additions have occurred over the years. Eighty years on, this club is a social hub for those who participate in competition bowls, social bowls or the more casual, family orientated Barefoot Bowls.

In the latter part of 2021, the club was renamed Cleveland Bayside Club and has been undergoing a transformation of sorts in order to change its image and attract more social members.

Even the in-house catering facilities have undergone the sweeping broom with the new Kokonut Cafe and Bar proving popular with members and their families for both their casual dining and snacks. We dropped in unexpectedly on the weekend and enjoyed Sweet Potato Chips with live music, such a treat after two years without performances in the flesh. It was lovely to see so many families snacking before heading off to the greens for a game of Barefoot Bowls.

Opening hours for the Kokonut Cafe are as follows:

Tuesday Closed
Wednesday 11am–8pm
Thursday 11am–8pm
Friday 11am–8pm
Saturday 11am–8pm
Sunday 8am–2pm
Monday Closed

Weekly trivia nights are still a feature of the club though there is now an emphasis on entertainment and special events. For listed events go here.

We plan to return to the Cleveland Bayside Club on Sunday, 5th of June, when there will be bands playing from 11:30 am till 4pm. Doesn't a lazy Sunday with music, a chilled beverage, and hot snacks (that I don't have to cook), sound perfect.

The club is located at 164 Middle St, Cleveland and on-site parking is plentiful.

See you there!
