Indoor bowls

Mates in Bowls is a fun way to spend a summer evening

On Tuesday evenings during the summer friends, family, work mates, and college pupils get a team together
for leisurely games of Lawn Bowls.

The Club has been enjoying Mates in Bowls for several years and we can register up to 32 teams.


Our Mates in Bowls Programme for 2024 has started again in January for another 5 week block.

Play starts at 6.00pm sharp and teams turn up from 5.30 to order BBQ sausages and purchase Raffle tickets (optional).

MiB players also get invites to other social bowling events held at the Club over summer.


You can register as a team or as individuals. For the latter we will help you make up teams who will play together for the block.

The fee is $150 per team of 4 per block payable with registration. Additional teams and individuals welcome and may pre-pay for part of the summer 2024.

We look forward to catching up with everyone this season … old friends and new. See you in January 2024

Organise friends, work-mates, family members or College pupils to enjoy some good company and relaxed competition on the greens.

Youngsters are welcome but need to be teens (12+ or so) … the bowling balls are adult size and may be heavy for youngsters.

Never played before ? … doesn’t matter … you’ll learn in 5 minutes or less. Don’t have a team ? … doesn’t matter … we’ll find you one. All you need is some flat shoes.

The weather is working in our favour as well, with long and hot summer evenings and fast greens.
