Big Bowls Programme

We’re a small club with a big bowls programme!

When our season is in full swing, sometimes we play every day except Monday and Tuesday.  During this couple of days the grass gets a break while our greens staff are busy maintaining the playing surface as well as the floral surrounds.

Wednesday afternoon club selected men’s pairs or triples from 12.30pm.  The dress code is mufti.

Saturday afternoons – rounds of our intraclub championships or pennant matches.  Club uniform must be worn.  All games start at 12.30pm.

Sunday afternoons – club-selected mixed social bowls.

Tuesday evenings toward the end of each year, we arrange a programme of community night bowls – “Tuesday Nights Under Lights”.  Aimed at attracting bowlers and non-bowlers, games are open to all ages and all levels of expertise.  Beginners in particular are encouraged to give it a go!  Usually the nights run for six weeks prior to Christmas, and recommence for a further six weeks early in the new year.  Play usually starts around 6.30pm and wraps up no later than 8.30.  At play’s end, prizes are drawn out-of-the-hat, so anybody can take home the goodies depending on the luck of the draw.  The burgers are inexpensive and tasty.

Thursday mornings or afternoons – Crows Nest Ladies Bowling Club members play socially or competitively.  Men are also welcome to make up the numbers.
