IT’S VARIED – there are many ways and formats to play bowls. You can play alone, or with a team. For a long time, a short time, socially, against mates or play with the whole family.

ACTIVE & OUTDOORS – Bowls is a great way to get some light exercise and spend time outdoors.

IT CAN BE COMPETITIVE – whether you are playing socially or are a dedicated bowler bowls brings out the competitive spirit in us all.    For those who would like to don the Club uniform there is pennant each week during the pennant season – September to February.
