The 2017 / 2018 Bowling season has now commenced, so come along and join the Ponsonby Bowling Club, and keep the tradition of lawn bowls going.
We have a great clubroom, with both a natural green and an all weather green, so as long as the rain stays away, you can play lawn bowls.
Alternately, the next season of Mates In Bowls starts in November, so grab a couple of friends and enter a team (3 players) and enjoy the most social version of lawn bowls. More details are on our web site. (www.ponsonbybowls.nz)
