Welcome to the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club!! We are well into the 2023 season but are still welcoming new members. Training sessions are available if enough people are interested; however, for individuals or couples, other arrangements can be made. We will continue to post updates here and to our Facebook page. Please feel free to contact us at any time. Please n0te that all members must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19.
Regular bowling days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings; we also have a Ladies Day on Tuesday mornings and Mens Night on Thursdays. Daytime bowling starts at 9:30 but players are expected to be present at the club no later than 9:15. You can play as often or as little as you like and since we make new teams every draw, you won't create any team problems by not coming every session. No experience is necessary, no special equipment needed, training will be provided and the use of a set of bowls is free to new bowlers, plus rentals are available from your second year to fourth years - please see our bowl rental policy under the Home tab for more information.
We have in-house tournaments as well as hosting inter-club tournaments. For in-house events, most are individual entry with teams created through a random draw. We emphasize this approach to encourage new members and especially new-to-the-game players to enter and get involved. In some other events, members form their own teams. For those who like a little more of a competitive environment, we support any member group that wishes to enter inter-club team competitions by providing dedicated practice times as required, supported by certified coaches. Individual competitive interests are also encouraged.
WHY WE PLAY THIS GAME!
The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club was started in Richmond under an agreement with the Township of Goulbourn in 1996. In 1998, it was moved to its present location at 2135 Huntley Road in Stanley Corners just south of Stittsville on the way to Richmond. On June 1, 2000 we came under the control of the City of Ottawa as part of the extension of city boundaries.
