Carpet Bowling

Carpet bowling takes place on the concourse of the Nepean Sportsplex.  We play year round, twice per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1 until 3 p.m.

Before we start to play, we draw tickets as to which carpet we play on and which position. First one person throws the jack, then the following people try to throw the bowl as close to the jack as possible.

Since the bowl is heavier on one side, we can throw in a curve. The team with the most bowls close to the jack wins. The minimum number of people that can play is 4, the number of people attending range from 4 up to 17, and occasionally more.

Our drop in fee is $1.25 plus 25 cents for coffee or tea or hot chocolate, and a cookie. We usually go out for lunch just before Christmas.


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.
