  • 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.

Is round 2 on sky sport next?

Any charts/results please team?..

We watched some of the games. What a shame some of the players kept getting in the way of the camera. Ruined our viewing of the head.

Sheldon Bagrie-Howley, how good was he?

How good it is to see wide bowls a pleasure to watch

Terrific bowling.

Benjamin Harvey rib tickler pal

James Devlin

I was lucky enough to watch and play against him, he played for Leith B.C along with another great Kevin darling in those days they were the king's. Leith was a very strong club. Back b4 2007 you couldn't just win one tournament and draw two touches and make teams, it was a 15 year art and apprenticeship to go from the bottom to the Top in lawn bowls

Two wonderful bowlers I had the pleasure of watching, playing with such great skills on our very very fast greens with very wide draw bowls, thanks for the memories.

Bloody good shot.

Jimmy Niziurski this is all you!!!

Played in it following year best tournament ever. Spent 3 weeks with paul Richards what a scream.

Fab draw bowls
