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.
The final is now set team McLean v team Hughes . The Singh brothers have been quick off the mark and have posted McLean ( 2019 singles champion)
As the clear fav at $1.45 with Hughes at $2.70 . The x factor for team Hughes could be the 92 year old Harry Forbes bought in as a late substitute , expect a plunge on man of the match betting involving H.Forbes .

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.)

Mixed Pairs are played in September and October midweek.
