Northumbria Police said it was “such a shame” after they found Birtley Bowling Welfare Pavilion in had been burned down.
Last month, on three separate occasions, the pavilion was broken into and vandalised.
This included locks being cut, shutters being removed and windows, furniture, toilets and doors being damaged.

On Wednesday at around 10.30pm, emergency services were called to the premises after a fire had engulfed the building causing irreparable damage.
Officers believe the cause of the fire is suspected arson and are carrying out a full investigation into the incidents, which they are treating as linked.
A spokesperson for the force said: “This is absolutely appalling and we’ll rest at nothing to ensure those responsible are rightly identified, arrested and put before the courts.
“Enquiries have been ongoing ever since the spate of vandalism last month, and this week’s attack is the latest in a line of mindless criminality committed at the premises.
