5 Pin Bowling

Note.  It is hoped that Bowling will resume in the Fall 2022.


Our League is a non-competitive league, which is noted for being a regular social activity involving good exercise, fun times and camaraderie.

There are no “teams” (or team pressure). Bowlers’ averages are maintained on an informal basis throughout the season, and a number of prizes are awarded at the end of the season to celebrate special achievements (with and without handicap), i.e. for high average, high game, and high series.

Venue: the Merivale Bowling Centre, 1916 Merivale Road (south of Hunt Club Road), Monday afternoons, from 1:00-3:00 p.m., from September to April.

This is a drop-in activity where players pay $13.00 for 3 games, of which $1.00 goes towards individual prizes. A weekly 50/50 draw also generates funds which are put towards prizes.

Proper bowling shoes must be worn (and can be rented on-site if necessary, at a cost of $2.50). Regular bowlers quite often purchase their own shoes.

There are two parties per season (December and April), held in the dining room of the Bowling Centre immediately following bowling.

We do not have the usual Nepean Sportsplex Seniors Guide. Instead the City has produced a Guide for all seniors programs in the City.

To search for programs at the Nepean Sportsplex, when you open the Guide, press Ctrl + F and then type Nepean. It will link you to the appropriate eight Seniors programs.
