WELCOME TOBELFAST BOWLING CLUB
The Belfast Bowling Club was founded in 1919, the present site which can be found on Main North Road. This land was leased from the Waimari Country Council which is now amalgamated with the Christchurch City Council. The ladies section commenced 1955 and amalgamated with the men’s club in 2000. The present clubrooms and facilities are a result of many hours of voluntary work in the late seventies and early eighties, with further renovation as recent as 2022. Our Club green is recognised as one of the best surfaces in the Canterbury Centre.
The club has had many successes over the years in winning many competitions, including the Men’s Sevens thirteen out of 20 years in the late 1990’s and 2000’s. Membership growth in recent years to just under 100 is testament to the enjoyment of membership at Belfast Bowling Club. In earlier times consideration was given to laying a second green but to date this has not come to fruition.
The club provides bowls to a diverse membership and range of skill levels. Open competition (men’s & women’s), over 60 and juniors are all catered for and a limited membership which allows use of the green but no entry to competition play. Social members are also welcome to enjoy the comradery of the club. Club night is Thursday night with the kitchen open throughout the year offering an assortment of meals and the chance to stay connected especially over the winter months when the green is closed.
