New Members Welcome


Ballarat Memorial Sports Bowls Club is always looking for new members to join up and strengthen our pennant division sides and also to improve the social aspects of our club. We cater for bowlers who are happy to continue to play at their own particular level. We also appreciate bowlers who are interested in developing their capability with a view to being able to play at the very highest level that they can.

In Saturday Pennant, for season 2023/24, we have sides in Divisions 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7. In Midweek Pennant we have sides in Divisions 1, 3 and 5……. Our club has 2 home greens – both are surfaced with sports carpet.

We have qualified accredited coaches who can actively oversee the development and fine-tuning of your bowling to assist in achieving your own personal, as well as team and club goals. No positions in any of our sides are “set in stone” –  the club selectors will always be trying to select the best (in form) bowlers each week for all of our 8 Pennant sides.  

If you are interested in being a part of a successful club and want to take up the challenge, then come and join us and experience our excellent facilities. You can join as a Full Member (allowing you to be involved in Pennant competitions). You can also join as a Social Member. As a Social Member, you can use our bowling facilities at all times when they are not being used for pennant competitions, tournaments and official practice times. You can also take part in the social activities of the club. Most bowlers involve themselves in lawn bowls for the sport but also for the social benefits of membership. Our club places huge emphasis on friendliness, respect and involvement of club members in social interactions within the club – we strongly believe a happy club will be much more successful and much more enjoyable to all club members.

To make an inquiry you can contact the club by speaking to one of our members. Most afternoons, especially during the bowls season, there will be members down on the greens that you can talk to for any information you require – you will be made most welcome. You are also welcome to trial our greens just to see how they “roll”. At the same time you will get some idea of what facilities our club has.

You can also email our Secretary at for further information. A member application form can be obtained from the club or downloaded below.
