New to bowls

New to bowls and want to try it out?

What is it about?

Lawn Bowls is a sport that anyone can play, regardless of age or ability.  It’s easy to learn and can be as relaxed or as competitive as you want to make it.  This video prepared by Bowls Canada explains this world sport.

Getting started 

You will need flat-soled shoes.
We supply the bowls.
Casual dress is fine.
Coaching is free. It is done in a relaxed way at a time to suit you – available every Sunday and at other times.
Try to play some social bowls games during winter.

To start contact John Higgins on 0409 175 239 .

Want to keep playing?

You can enter social games, tournaments and play pennant. You can play as much or as little as suits you.   Get advice from the coaches on the type and size of bowls that will best suit you.  You will need uniform for pennant competition. Our players wear coloured clothing.

What will it cost?

Initially nothing.
First year membership for new bowlers – minimal!
You need to purchase a uniform, shoes and bowls – new or secondhand.
Green fees are $10 per game.

Other info

Traditionally a sport for older people, it is now becoming more popular as a younger person’s sport.  Twenty to forty year olds predominately make up the Victorian and Australia teams.  Many of our older bowler wish that they had taken up the sport 20 years earlier.
