About Us


Welcome to Armadale Bowls Club located in the sports’ precinct of Princes Park, Caulfield South. We are steeped in history having celebrated our 130 years milestone in 2018.

We are a strong club of nearly 250 members, participating in competitive and/or social bowls. We play both Midweek (Tuesday) and Weekend (Saturday) pennant from October to March. Social games are played on Wednesday afternoons throughout the year.

Bowls is a game like no other. We have members ranging in age from mid-20’s to mid-90’s. Bowls caters for players of any level of sporting background and prowess and for those who have not played sport at all. It is an individual and a team sport catering for players of all abilities. We are a social club both on and off the green.

Our modern clubhouse has a bar which is open during all competitive and social matches. Our clubhouse is also available to hire for both private and corporate events and functions and can accommodate up to 180 guests.

We are also available to host your social or corporate barefoot bowls events.

Not sure whether bowls is for you? Just come along and have some fun any Sunday morning from 10.00 – 12.00. Our friendly coaches will be there to introduce you to the game. Bowls are provided for learners.
