  • NZ’s Social Hubs

    Bowls is a sport steeped in history and community, with many bowling clubs being over 100 years old and playing a huge part in community development as social hubs.

  • 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.

Bowls New Zealand has been given a mystery to solve!

We recently received the below communication:

Greetings from Canada.  

I am trying to find out what I can about this trophy bowl.  

It was recently donated to the local heritage society in Campbellford Ontario where I am a member of the local club.  

The photos suggest a CEDAR GROVE LAWN BOWLING CLUB.  Is there, or was there, ever a club by that name in New Zealand?

There is no record of any club by that name in Canada.  

The November date would also suggest that it is not connected to Canada (too cold here for bowling!).  

Any thoughts that you might have will be appreciated.

Bob Reid

Do we have any Bowls sleuths/historians who can help Bob out?
