Membership

Welcome to the Club.  We want to have fun and we want our new members to have fun too through the wonderful game of lawn bowling.   Now let’s get started!

Membership in the Club automatically includes membership in the Interior Lawn Bowling Association (ILBA) and Bowls BC.  The Membership fee also includes personal injury insurance purchased cooperatively though Bowls BC.

 Bowl Rental

The Club has spare sets of bowls, which new members can use.   Members can rent a set of bowls for two years.  Eventually, most members want to own their own bowls (always buy a matching set of four) and there are usually previously owned sets available for sale.  Renting however gives the new member the opportunity to try a few sizes to determine what best suits them best.

Rental rate:

  • $20.00/season

 

Included in your material is an educational entitled “E2, All about Bowls”.  Before purchasing used bowls, new members are encouraged to discuss the markings found on all bowls with a Club member.

 Clothing

    Players are required to wear flat-soled shoes such as tennis shoes while playing on the greens.

 

For social bowling (jitneys) any style of dress is fine.  At the height of summer, most members wear shorts and certainly dress for comfort.  It is requested however that whites or creams be worn for interclub competitions, special events and holiday competitions.  There are also provisions in the rules to allow teams to be dressed in team colours
