Lawn Bowling

“Nepean Lawn Bowls” is located at the Pavilion building next to the Sportsplex (facing Woodroffe Ave). Lawn bowling is very similar to carpet bowling only done outdoors on much larger greens with larger bowls. The season runs from the end of April to the end of October (weather permitting). Access to the club for play or practice is 7 days a week from 9:00 am until dusk, with lighted evening play for club events. Nepean Lawn Bowls has 8 artificial greens which provide a longer season and consistent bowling surface. Social activities include club events in the pavilion with BBQ’s. coffee, tea, soft drinks, cookies and baking.

The annual fee for a first-year member is $80 which includes the use of club bowls and coaching. Each year after that members’ fees are $120 and a bowls rental fee of $20. Scheduled expert coaching is available free for everyone.

Bowling activities are balanced for all levels of play, from Novice to Competitive, and from playing singles to team play. The week day mornings or afternoons have fun team bowling with balanced sides chosen. There are many in-house or city tournaments available for all levels of play.

This summer’s open houses are on Apr 30 from 10am to 3pm, and May3 and May 5 from 1pm to 3pm and 7pm to 8pm. These events provide an introduction to lawn bowling and coaching.

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.
