The present Club house was built in 1986. Prior to that the Club operated from a wooden pavilion within the Park.

One of our members, Ernie Douglass, suggested that the Club approach the Redcar Racecourse with a view to buying the over-flow car park and building on it. He generously offered to buy the Land on behalf of the Cub on an interest free loan basis.
This was agreed at the Club’s Annual General Meeting in 1985. The land comprised of one acre and was available at a price of £7,000.

The plan was to build the Club house and when funds allowed, to add an indoor bowls hall.  

A life membership scheme was created and this provided the funds needed to build. In 1996 after another Life membership initiative and with the help of a Lottery Grant, the four rink indoor bowls hall was built.

The historic meeting in the Park was captured on video tape by Club member Bill Campbell.
