Haere Mai - Welcome to the Canterbury bowling club 2017
We are a newly amalgamated club between the former Saint Albans park and Canterbury bowling clubs. Nestled on the grounds of the beautiful Saint Albans park, located at 6 Forfar Street which lies just North of the Christchurch central business district.
We welcome anyone that is keen to give lawn bowls a go. We are a very friendly and community based bowling club. We have social evenings, run tournaments and have 90+ members and growing.
We have great coaches and can assist in your development, from the very beginner to National level competition.
Corporate Bowls can be played anytime during the Summer or Winter. We have 2 outdoor greens available in the summer and an indoor green which has 3 rinks. The cost is $10 a head which you get bowls to use, bar facilities, kitchen facilities and a BBQ. Great for work bonding sessions or End of Year Xmas function. These can start as early as 10am or as late as 6pm.
You don't even need to be a bowler to enjoy the club. Social memberships are available for only $40 per year. You can join us for a drink and catch up with mates. We offer a pool table and host regular social events throughout the year. You must be a member or affiliated member of a Sports Club to be able to purchase alcohol on the premises. Our bar hours are customarily: Tues 9am - 1pm, Wed noon - 5pm, Thur 4pm - 7pm, Fri 2pm - 7pm, Sat noon - 7pm, Sundays during tournaments.
