  • 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.

Great games to watch.

Looking forward to it.

Loved every moment of it last year ๐Ÿ™‚

Bowls New Zealand will there be a team post?????

I will be watching team Henry!

I mean Hinny lol

Fran - there you go

Is it on tv or the phone?

Well I watched and was disappointed there was no atmosphere I cannot see why there couldn't be spectators

We had a large group attend a night last year and loved every minute the atmosphere was great and the players feed off that atmosphere. Last night was a very hard watch in fact i'll go as far to say boring, i think you've got this wrong bowls NZ , Bring back teams playing 2 games in a night and certainly bring back spectators. If you're trying to sell bowls on TV as fun your going about it the wrong way.

true bryan...no atmosphere and pretty boring,the crowds are what maker the Aussie competition exciting...come on Bowls NZ get with it..

Would be nice if they bothered answering emails first

Bowls3Five on Sky Sport is back, featuring a brand new team in the Manurewa Cosmopolitan Kites and weโ€™re looking for a crowd!

Being an Auckland competition, its always been difficult for fans from around the country to watch at the venue, and with this year also carrying the potential for restrictions to be imposed on audience numbers (Thanks COVID-19!), we will be creating a digital audience for the arena instead. 
We would love your help to do it, so send us your best photos and you could find yourself and your mates featuring live on Sky Sport! 
Send your pictures in to events@bowlsnewzealand.co.nz or via facebook messenger.

NB If you are submitting a photo of a group, please make sure youve got permission from everyone who is featured,
