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

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.)

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).
