The Almost Free Sport
It costs nothing to try and very little to become a full time member. The club gladly provides individual and
groups instruction and we have equipment for you to use. All you need to bring is a pair of flat soled shoes to protect the green. See our Contact Us page for instructions.
Did you like the introduction and want to join? New members, both "home club" and "secondary", are always welcome. You can find details and dues information on the membership page. For the price of a round of golf or a couple trips to the indoor bowling alley you can join us for a whole year!
If you decide to join the club we'll let you use the club bowls for a while. However, you'll eventually need your own set of bowls which range from $50 for used ones to $450 for the spiffiest new ones. You'll also eventually need a measure, a bag to put your stuff in, and whites for tournaments and special events. However, that really is about it! There is no better bargain for a sport or pastime that can bring you years of fun and tons of new friends.
The Other Clubs
What is better than joining a club? With lawn bowling you really join a community of clubs. You'll meet and play with new friends all over the Bay Area and even around the world! Whether you call one of the local clubs on our Links page or find yourself in some small town in Australia you will have instant friends ready to share a game and maybe even show you the town.
We are members of PIMD and Bowls USA. They are the regional and national bowls organizations.
