The El Ejido Bowls Club was formed in 2011. It was registered as an official sporting organisation with the Andalucían Federacion De Deportes in 2012.
For the first few years the club used a room underneath one of the stands at the El Ejido football stadium. As most of the members are associated with Almerimar in some way it was decided to try to find a location to play closer to Almerimar. The club moved to the Golf Hotel in Almerimar during 2016. Early in 2019 the club relocated to a new, purpose built, facility a short drive away from Almerimar.
The focus of the club is running regular short mat bowls events for members and guests in the Almerimar area. We also hold occasional matches against other short mat bowls clubs in Spain (e.g. Almijara club based in Nerja). Since 2017 we have entered teams in international short mat bowls competitions organised by the Short Mat Players Tour.
In addition, we organise occasional social events for members and their guests (e.g. visit to a greenhouse growing succulent plants; playing outdoor full length bowls in Mojacar etc.).
The cost of membership is 30 euros a year. Members pay 5 euros and guests pay 7 euros per 2 hour session of bowls.
