Sally Robinson was the founding force and after taking lessons she gathered up a group of interested locals and the infant club used the old school site as a venue. Ros Mac Kenzie, an experienced player, gave lessons and soon the Club boasted 16 members.

In the year 2000, the Club relocated to the Bowling Club from which it still operates. It has competitive sessions of a Monday and Wednesday and lessons for beginners.

The Tilligerry Bridge website which was up and running in 2010 gives full details of the Club and its activities.

Each year in April a ‘conference’ of up to 130 players descends on Tilligerry to compete in various graded events. It well and truly puts the town on the map as well an injecting cash into the community.
