Lawn Bowls is a great opportunity to be active, make new friends and get involved in the social and bowling life offered by clubs. You can really get involved at whatever level appeals to you.

All clubs are very welcoming to new members. Bowling clubs are open all year round, with summer being the most active time of the year. The seasons starts around mid-September and goes until May. However, most clubs run winter programs which allow you to bowl all through the year.
Each club will run their own Championship events in which only club members can enter. Generally these include Championship Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours. In addition, clubs run a wide variety of events for their own club members and visitors from other clubs. These range from very casual to highly competitive.
Pennants is our main competition and is run by Bowls WA . This is a graded competition starting with Premier League and going to 6th Division.
In the Metropolitan area the Men have Midweek Pennants (Thursday afternoons) and Saturday Pennants. The Women have Tuesday Pennants, Friday Night Pennants and Saturday Pennants.
Each competition is held roughly over 18 weeks. (Saturday ladies and Friday nights are less) There are approximately 10 sides in each colour of each division. The sides play off for the Pennant, promotion and pride for the clubs they belong to.
Country pennants is different, with each league running their own competition. Contact your Country league for more information.
It is a fun competition that allows all people with all levels of skills to compete.
Have fun and enjoy your bowls.
