Attention all Balgowlah Heights and surrounding suburbs residents!

Have you ever thought how good it would be to have a local club on your doorstep with a friendly bar, good food and a safe place for the kids to play?  How about all of that with some beautiful views thrown in only a short walk away?

Well we have all of that at the Balgowlah Bowling and Community Club on Bareena Drive!  We may have kept a bit of a low profile in the past and, if we are honest, we might have been a bit pigeon-holed as a place for serious bowls players only.  That is certainly not the case now! 

The club would like to be seen as a Community Club where some of its members enjoy a game of bowls rather than a bowling club that sometimes accepts non-bowling visitors.  To that end, we want to throw open our doors to our local community and offer a welcoming and comfortable space for neighbours to socialise while the kids can play safely either outside on the dedicated green or inside in our TV and games room.

However, we can’t do this on our own.  The club is a not for profit organisation which is solely funded by its members and, while we are keen to make changes and expand the club membership and facilities, all of this needs to be funded.

For this reason, we have now launched a new family membership scheme which will work as follows:

  • Family membership fee of $100 per annum with proceeds going to upgrade our bar menu, kids’ facilities and bar staff costs.
  • The club will be open every Friday and Saturday evening to all and will have catering available on site.
  • Selected events throughout the year for State of Origin, Bledisloe Cup, etc.  There is even talk of some larger events around Boxing Day!

We do need to stress that we can only make this happen with your support and we need at least 100 families to sign up and pay the membership fee to make this viable.  As such please spread the message far and wide among your network!

Please either sign up here or come along and ask our friendly staff for a family membership form.
