The Friends of Summerhill, a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, was created in October 2010 in response to the imminent closure and sale of the historic Summerhill Bowling Club in central Newcastle upon Tyne. The site was transferred in March 2011 to the Friends, whose ambition is to develop the greens and former clubhouse into a thriving community resource and who have now taken on responsibility for their management and maintenance.

The Friends are also committed to working with Newcastle City Council to achieve improvements to the Council-owned Summerhill Park, the principal public open space in the Summerhill Conservation Area.

The Friends is a membership organization, open to all (annual fee £1).
