  • Get Involved

    With a strong traditional base, casual players who turn out for a roll up, and world class athletes, bowls is continually challenging the stereotype.

Altho we need the rain bugger for the bowls Was coming down but with rain will watch from comfort of sofa Thank you bowls nz for your coverage have noticed the improvements in coverage

The rinks have just been chalked, and the rain radar is looking positive. Cross you fingers, we should be underway soon!

And we're off!

where do we find it ?

cant find on sport next

awaiting start found it now

Greg Valentine

Take it back go into remuera or new Lynn lol that’s ridiculous in the rain or hold off till it clears

Cleared now in mt roskill

just heard by text that its pouring down and play is delayed

Its running in Auckland. Doubt any play today

The bell has been rung and players have cleared the green whilst its being cleared of water.

Rain radar not looking good at all. Go indoor and enjoy the finals.

how stupid,playing in rain when there are two indoor greens...the weather report showed rain for today 2 days ago...how about some common sense...

The rain has stopped, and the sun is coming out but these ducks are enjoying the water in the meantime! Squeegies are out as we type this, stand by for play to resume soon.

Nearly done! James the greenkeeper is on the roller now, and the birds have flown away and are now singing in the trees. Excited for a great three rounds of bowls at Carlton Cornwall Bowls.

Good to see teamwork on the green

Frances Webster, I having same issues, not the first time sadly.

can’t get any results except one page

Why in the men's pairs there isn't results for all sections yet as games say they started at 830am now 1.15pm ๐Ÿค”

Have sorted it


Be patient folks they r trying their hardest

They did say the results were trickling in... very very very slowly... section 19 finished fifth round and fourth Rd results aren’t up. Shouldn’t over promise and under deliver. Just saying ๐Ÿ™„

We appreciate the patience of our community, as we strive to make sure that we only need to put the results up once. The links provided on the website page, and on this facebook post, are 'live' and will be updated as we verify results. Clubs around Auckland are at different stages as the weather in this wonderful city does what it does. Full post section draws for the men and the quarter final match ups for the women will be available by 8.30pm tonight, with tommorrows play also being broadcast.

Thanks have given up

Why does it take so long to get results up its 2021 not 1900s just a joke round 3 started this morning

The women's singles is now nearing the last 16 stage in all events, and the men's pairs section play is completed in most of the venues. We expect post section draws for the men's pairs to be up by 8.30pm. Check them out here: bowlsnewzealand.co.nz/2021-summerset-national-singles-and-pairs/ If the website is running slow, find direct links here: Women's Singles: indd.adobe.com/view/da0294ab-ca62-4559-a507-c3ec6d168686 Men's Pairs: indd.adobe.com/view/f57fc657-a5cf-46ca-a37b-5d712a2fa3b7
