Is this a league where I am committed to scheduled games?
No, we make up the teams on the day of the game. Arrive 15 minutes early and your name will be added to the playing board. We build the teams based on those present so you can play when you desire – there are no obligations.
Is there any equipment needed?
No equipment is needed as we provide the bowls free with membership. We recommend you bring a small towel to wipe them off during the game due to moisture or grass accumulation.
How do I join?
We offer free beginner lessons giving you a trial period at playing the game and deciding if you want to join. After three evenings of instruction you can then chose to join at a special discounted rate for first time members. Call or simply drop by on one of our schedule coaching nights to give the game a try and share in the fun with no obligation – we provide all the equipment. Members can bowl as often as they like for the one membership fee. Our fees are as follows:
Annual 2019 membership $140
New Member – first year $120
Associate/Social Membership $35
Joint OLBA Membership $110 (must provide OLBA number)
Bowls rental applied after third year membership- $15.00 / year
Lockers (first come first served) $10.00 / year
Do I have to wear white clothing?
Only if you are participating in a tournament (these are optional as well) otherwise on regular playing days wear casual clothes – the only proviso for playing on our greens is to WEAR SOFT SOLE SHOES.
What are the times and days of play?
We play on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. to approximately 8:30 depending on the pace of the game.
Friday play times vary depending on the months as follows: afternoons in May, June, September, and October with a 1:00 p.m. start time and mornings in July and August with a 10:00 a.m. start time. This accommodates the daycare that shares our clubhouse.
We also play on Saturday mornings with a 10:00 a.m. start time.
Arrive at least 15 minutes earlier then the start time to enter your name in the draw. Details are listed in our calendar.
Do you offer your facilities for corporate or private events?
Absolutely and, every company that has a team building day playing lawn bowling return as they find the location refreshing, the game more of a challenge than expected and just lots of fun. Give us a call to get details on pricing and to book a date! We have limited availability as we get repeat corporate bookings.
What kind of social activities does the club have available for members?
Members enjoy a variety of activities in addition to bowling. During July and August there are bi-weekly card nights, we have special event BBQ’s and many members participate together in other community events like concerts to enjoy the comradery and benefits of group pricing.
