About Us

In February 1909 the Mayor of Onslow Borough convened a meeting of interested residents of Khandallah and Ngaio to consider forming a bowling club.

This gathering resulted in the establishment of a Company which purchased the land from Mr C H Izard, prepared the bowling green and commenced play a year later.

Over 100 years later the club is still going strong, with both a healthy playing and social membership. Khandallah Bowling Club prides itself in being both a competitive club and a club where all can enjoy an informal roll up.

Club competitions are competitive but at all times fair play, true sportsmanship, and camaraderie rule supreme. Good play is acknowledged and as a result we all enjoy the game.

The club participates in Bowls Wellington interclub and pennants competitions. There club championship events culminate with the winners entering the Bowls Wellington champion of champions events at the end of the playing season.

Other club events include handicap and veteran competitions plus a points systems for those playing regularly in weekend non championship competitions. Regular informal roll ups are enjoyed by all members with disc draws arranged on the spot each weekend.

The club has qualified coaches who provide free coaching to members. This service is not restricted to beginners as even experienced bowlers, like any sports, can benefit from an expert eye to identify and suggest a solution occasionally.

Socially, Mates in Bowls and midweek gatherings are enjoyed and the club facilities are extensively used for a range of other activities.
