Men’s Bowling Club culburra
Men’s Bowling Club
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.
We have had success in recent years in all grades of pennants having won District Flags in all of our grades and even a Zone flag. Our bowlers have won numerous District Championships and have completed at Zone level.
10 Teams entered the 3 games by 6 ends format. Due to thunderstorms and rain, only 2 games were completed. Winning the day with 2 wins + 5 margin were Lenny Thomas & Brett Gilligan. The old fox lead the way and made Brett’s job a lot easier. Runners up were Dione & Gary Thurston from Nowra Ex Servos with 1 win 1 draw + 12 margin. Good to see another team from out of Culburra joining the competition.
Another reminder of the bowls open day next Saturday 9th December. Anyone keen to learn how to bowl or improve on their game, join our coaches and members for a lesson. Enquire at the Culburra Bowling Club reception desk and put your name down.

There are many social bowls events played throughout the year on weekends; these events are posted on the notice boards at the bowls office
All of our social bowls events are open to all bowlers of all levels; beginners, experienced, men, women, juniors. Visitors are always welcome.
Social bowls are played in mufti (casual clothing, club rules apply) but we ask that suitable footwear to be worn.
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.)
2 major tournaments in a year:
Alf Cook Pairs – $2000.00 Prize Money – Mid Week of March
Mixed Pairs are played in September and October midweek.
Any inquiries can be directed to the Bowls Office within the main club which is available on Wednesday and Friday (between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm).
