Chesterfield Bowling Club claims to be the oldest in the world. It was established in 1294 at its current home ground in Derbyshire. It has always been a club for men only yet a former member has accused it of being "stuck in its ways". He has left and joined a mixed-sex bowls club. Bowls is a traditional English game usually played by older people. It is generally more popular with men, but that doesn't mean something is wrong that needs to be fixed; it's just that human nature varies when generalizing groups. There is nothing preventing any woman who wants to play bowls from playing. This is a point I brought up when several people complained that there were supposedly not enough female UFOlogists. In fact attempts to force a balance in such circumstances can be extremely destructive, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/adx-files-38-women-in-ufology.html. Chesterfield Bowling Club is not entirely men only; they have a "ladies day" once a year and there is an old photo of such an event in the source article below. They have polled their members and voted to remain men-only. This is despite the former member blaming this supposed stodginess for the club's financial problems. They are old even by the standards of the sport; the youngest member is sixty-six. Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-41011618. I'm glad they have stuck by their principles and it's a shame the Royal Troon Golf Club did not, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/royal-troon-admits-women.html. The issue here is the double standard. Feminists who object to man-spaces invariably are open and proud members of woman-spaces. There are Women's Institute branches all over the world. Every academic institution has a women's organization, along with black groups and LGBT groups etc. It is only white heterosexual males who are denied this right to free association and self-actualization. This is not fair and I think there is a sinister mind control agenda behind it. And, so predictably... there is a women's bowls club too, see: http://www.wwba.co.uk/.
