On Wednesday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s, Lawn Bowls are the order of the day.

Gone are the days of bowls being a game just for retired people. An influx of young people taking up lawn bowls has led to a resurgence in its popularity.

Lawn bowls teaches strong self-discipline and young players also derive the obvious benefits of improved fitness and increased confidence. We actively encourage young people to engage in this gentle and friendly sport and share all the facilities the Club has to offer.

Night Bowls

Following the upgrading of certain facilities within the main club house and having recently renewed the flood-lights surrounding the “A Class” green, the bowling club has an added attraction for all bowlers. Now we shall try to prove if one can play better at night in the cool of the evening as opposed to in the heat of daylight. No matter what the outcome, it will allow for additional hours of play catering to the working folk to get together with friends after work in order to enjoy some relaxation and sporty socialising. The bowling club committee is presently discussing how these NIGHT BOWLS sessions will function with regard to times/days/hours and general rules. The Bowler is one of the few clubs in the district to offer this experience.

Bowling Hours

  • Tuesdays 16h00 – 17h30 *Newcomers
  • Wednesdays 14h30 for 15h00
  • Saturdays 14h30 for 15h00
  • Sundays 09h30 for 09h00

Bowlers are expected to wear whites if there are competitions being played.


The club invites new members and beginners to be guided and introduced to this wonderful game with practices on Tuesday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. Dress code is casual, but flat shoes or takkies are essential. Bowls will be provided as will a warm welcome.
