Princes Park Carlton Bowls Club is conveniently located at the northern end of Princes Park between the Carlton Football Ground and the lake. Car park entry is off Bowen Crescent. It is in Melbourne close to the border of Brunswick and just a short ride on tram 19 from the city (get off at Stop 18) and a short walk from Jewell station on the Upfield train line. See the map below.
The club is open to everyone: pennant players and social and barefoot bowlers as well as being available to be hired for functions. The club is licensed. We love our lawn bowls and would like to encourage others to try the game. Please come and visit us or book to hold a function. Our opening hours are: Thursday from 6pm, Friday from 4pm, Saturday from noon and Sunday from noon to 6pm. We can open at other times if pre-arranged. Ring or email us (9380 1458, firstname.lastname@example.org). Fancy Hank's BBQ is our sole caterer from Friday to Sunday but you are also welcome to book one of our BBQs Monday-Thursday. Bookings for Fancy Hank's food can be made by emailing email@example.com.
If you want to hire our facilities email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the club on 9380 1458 and leave a message. The email address is preferred because it can be answered away from the club as well. The club is staffed by volunteers but we will endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.
We are about to start a competition for casual and pennant bowlers from 6.30-8.00pm on the second and fourth Thursdays until the end of April. It will cost members (pennant or social) $5 and non-members $10. Half will be given back as prize money. Novices are welcome but it would be a good idea to arrive 15 minutes early to get some tips. Just be there.
