Rydale Indoor Bowls Club
Ryedale Indoor Bowls Club is a triumph for community effort. Previously the site in Norton-on-Derwent, Malton was owned and operated by Ryedale District Council. However, in 2013 the council decided that because the facility was uneconomic it should be closed and the site sold. A determined effort by members of the club and local community resulted in the site being purchased for the community and re-opened as the Ryedale Community and Leisure Centre. After extensive refurbishment in autumn 2014, during which the number of rinks was reduced to five, the club is now operating normally.
