LAWN BOWLING IS BACK IN BRAMPTON!!! JOIN NOW

The Brampton Lawn Bowling Club is very pleased to share with you the wonderful news that we can resume lawn bowling on a limited basis due to COVID-19 restrictions on our greens starting July 19, 2021.


Bowling will take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on three greens.

Note that members will not have access to the building and must enter the greens from outside at the west end by our storage room.  Unfortunately due to current COVID restrictions, washroom facilities will not be available.

For this shortened season, bowling membership will be a very affordable $30.00.  This fee will pay for insurance as required by the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association.  Your Club will be covering all other costs this season.  UPDATE:  The $2.00 fee per play referred to in the earlier posting below will no longer be applied.

To ensure everyone’s safety and wellness, strict protocols and new procedures will be in place due to COVID-19 restrictions.
For all the details, please see our interim President Patrick May’s notice below on the previous posting.

For those members who do not own their own bowls, the Club will loan each member a set of bowls for this season only on a "first come first serve" basis.  These members will sign a loan form and be responsible for returning the set at the end of the season.  Bowls will be available for loan on Thursday, July 15th and Tuesday July 20th between 4:00 to 6:00 pm.  Meet Patrick May outside on the Clubhouse patio.

To join our Club to bowl for this season, simply print and complete the Membership Application Form and the new Release of Liability Form with COVID provisions now required by OLBA as found above.  Bring these forms and your cheque for $30.00 payable to the Brampton Lawn Bowling Club to your first time of bowling.

Looking forward to welcoming everyone back to some fun bowling and good socially distanced fellowship.

Help spread the word by telling your friends and neighbours about this great opportunity to join our club.  Note that for this season due to COVID protocols, there is no free trial period.

Lawn Bowling in Brampton 2021 Season

Greetings Fellow Lawn Bowling Enthusiasts in Brampton

The Brampton Lawn Bowling Club hopes that everyone is staying safe and well as the Covid-19 pandemic continues around us during this Spring, 2021.  

Unfortunately, due to the continuing restrictions from the Government of Ontario and the City of Brampton, our Club has not been able to open to date.   The future remains uncertain at this time.

Participating in lawn bowling games along with the accompanying much enjoyed fun and friendship with fellow members is being very much missed.

Your Club Executive remains enthusiastically committed to ensuring that lawn bowling returns to our Club as soon as possible.

When games are able to resume, the Club looks forward to welcoming back all of our members along with many new members who look forward to learning to play and enjoying the great sport of lawn bowls.

Please check back here for future updates.

Until we can meet again in person,

Brampton Lawn Bowling Club Executive Committee

COVID 19 Update for Brampton Lawn Bowlers

Greetings Fellow Brampton Lawn Bowling Club Members

Hopefully this note finds you and your families safe and healthy.

As the global pandemic continues around us in Brampton, it is indeed sad that our Club was not able to open for outdoor bowling this past summer season.  As you no doubt know, the City of Brampton wisely kept recreation centres and our greens facility closed all summer due to the Covid 19 virus.  Thus, despite the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association return to play guidelines that some Clubs were able to follow, our Brampton Club was not able to participate.  

Participation in lawn bowling games along with our usual much enjoyed fun and friendship with fellow members has been deeply missed this summer.

Your Club Executive remain enthusiastically committed to ensuring that lawn bowling returns to our Club next season assuming that the pandemic is no longer with us.  

As the virus spreads again this Fall, particularly in Peel Region, your Executive is monitoring the situation to determine if it will be possible to hold indoor Short Mats games as in previous years.  It is a possibility that there could be a shortened season starting in January, 2021.  Please monitor our blog for any further developments.

While we wait until we can bowl and socialize again together, please take care.  

Until we can meet again in person,

Brampton Lawn Bowling Club Executive Committee
