Bowling Competitions

Championship play
There are Men’s and Women’s Championship competitions during the summer season, held mainly on the weekends. The Club is always well represented in Auckland Centre and National bowling events where members have achieved outstanding success.

Interclub
In the Saturday Interclub the Club usually fields four Men’s teams and two Women’s teams.  The Club also participates in the National Interclub competition.

When entries are sought they are notified on the whiteboard in the hall. Conditions of play are also posted on the notice board.  Team selections are also posted on the notice board.

Every opportunity is given to new members to be included in the selection of interclub teams.

Open Tournaments
When entries are sought they are notified on the Tournament whiteboard in the lounge. As these are single day events the number of entries are limited by the number of available rinks, with entries accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Players looking for a team may enter their names in the ‘Single Entry’ list and enter a team when one has been organised.  The Tournament Manager may help facilitate team formation.When entries are full, teams and individuals may enter their names on the reserve list.

Results are decided by wins, ends, points, & points differential.

Club Competitions
Club competitions are all one day events of 3 games of 1 hr 15 minutes.
The dress code is Club colours (navy and white) or whites.
Competitions that are not pathways to Auckland Centre or National competitions may be combined competitions.

Winter Bowls
The Carpet green gives us the opportunity to play over the winter months. A Men’s Open Triples tournament is held Wednesday each week with an Open any combination Triples tournament also weekly on Fridays and Sundays.

To cater for the more Social bowlers a Roll-up is run each Saturday afternoon.

Come and ‘Have a Go’
We welcome anyone to come and ‘have a go’ at playing bowls. Bowls of different sizes are available and all you need is to wear a pair of flat soled shoes.

Please call the Club on 626 6450 to make arrangements fora convenient time.
