Our club in numbers









Get involved

New to bowls? Enjoy your first visit on us. Join us for one of our Sunday afternoon open sessions and our friendly members will be happy to show you the ropes (March – October inclusive).

Fun for all the family – we’ll lend you the equipment so all you need to get started is a pair of flat soled soles!

A friendly club with lovely people and great real ale

“The green is one of the best and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. I have never been made more welcome than the first time I went there.”


A lovely location off the edge of Melbourne

“A great place just to sit on a bench on a Sunday morning when the sun is shining. A better place to sit on a Sunday afternoon when the bar is open and you can enjoy a great beer.”


Everyone was so friendly and helpful

“Thank you to all at Kings Newton Bowls Club…everyone was so friendly and helpful. We will continue practicing.”
