You have just entered the website of the Edithvale Bowling Club Inc. and we are glad you "pushed our button"!
(Our "Latest News" page is our main page; you can find that in the Blue Bar above.)
Our club formed in 1968 following a community meeting of Edithvale residents who gathered, specifically to achieve that aim. They set the first years membership fee at $2 ....yes, just $2. But as our membership fee rose, so did our membership, our facilities and our competitiveness.
Council of the day set aside part of the “Edithvale Swamp” (now a treasured Wetland area) for our use at charging $10 rent a year and members, by debenture or the gift of interest free loans, raffles, bingo and jolly hard work, did the rest.
Today, thanks to those hardworking foundation members, we have a membership capable of fielding 6 Saturday Pennant Sides and 5 Midweek Pennant Sides, 3 beautiful, well maintained greens (2 grass and 1 synthetic), and a comfortable club house with a bar and outside BBQ facilities.
(You can hire of our facilities and bowls for your next function, just ring 9772 2020 or go to our “Contact Us” Section.)
The best thing about us is that we have bowls in winter, 4-5 times a week! (We were the first and only in the area to hold bowls in winter way back when...and we still do it well!) Summer Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays are our most popular days and well attended! So...it’s not just about Pennant. We also host 6-7 other Major Invitation Days and Tournaments each year.
We have “Barefoot Bowls” annually, check our calendar....but, we’re happy to meet and greet with you anytime!
Coaching is free and your first year’s membership should you wish to join us is just $50. (That's if you are new to the game and have never bowled as a member of any other Bowls Club here or abroad before.) We welcome enquiries and visits and will assist transferees in the transfer process.
