Our club is a medium size club within the South Coast District Bowling Association. We compete in District Pennants and District Championships as well as numerous tournaments throughout the region.

Another close final. played in very windy conditions ,decided on the last end.
Trevor McGuire did want it made known that he also was part of the winning team. with Rick Turton subbing for him in the final . just in case the Kiama Kid read the report . sorry Gary .
SATURDAY 2nd also saw Craig McGale playing in the Championsof
Champions singles played at St Georges Basin. The draw pitted Craig against
Berry’s singles champion Dave Badger . Again the conditions of play were very
difficult with the swirling 40 + km winds and some rain testing both players .
Dave got away to an early start playing well on the longer ends .Graig controlled the middle stages playing shorter ends. The final score favoured Dave 31 shots to 26 . well done to Craig who always represents the Culburra bowling club with
a great attitude win , lose or draw .
SUNDAY 3RD Club Triples was washed out with all games only playing 2 ends.

We play all Club Championships at our Club including State Singles and Pairs, Triples, Fours.
All minor championships and mixed championships.
New bowlers are always welcome. We will teach anyone. We have 6 male and 1 female accredited coaches. It is best to speak to a coach about learning to play and learning the correct way rather than learning from a friend (who may teach you bad habits.)
