The POINT WELLS CLUB is located at 4 Kowhai Ave, Point Wells.  There has recently been a change in focus from being a single entity Bowling Club to an all purpose Community Club catering to the needs of Bowlers, Social Members and Families.  While the bulk of members originate from within the Village, the facilities on offer have attracted a broad-based membership including people from surrounding districts.

Since the early 1950’s when the Point Wells Bowling Club was formed the facilities have been regularly improved.  The Clubroom premises provide for a full service bar, an excellent kitchen and has a capacity of 70 persons.  The smaller Bowling Green has a natural grass surface and is ideal for social bowls.

The facilities are available for hire at a reasonable rate. Should the bar facilities be required by the hirer, at least 6 weeks’ notice is required to allow for a Special Licence to be arranged in time.

Membership:

We welcome new members of all ages and the annual fees are structured to make it an attractive and affordable proposition.  For the 2016/17 year the single membership fee is $25 and the Joint Family Membership is $40 per annum.  Membership allows participation in all Club activities from enjoying a game of bowls to attending social events.

Social events:

Regular social events are held every Wednesday and Saturday from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm.  These are excellent networking opportunities to enjoy the company of like-minded people in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

From time to time we run events such as live coverage of key rugby tests and the Melbourne Cup on our big screen TV together with quiz and other social evenings.

Bowls:

Because we have a natural grass green, play is limited to the summer season from October to April.   Regular competitions are held including ample opportunity for new players to participate.  You don’t have to own a set of bowls as we have many sets available which have been donated by members.

Keep an eye out for events being advertised either at the Club entrance or at the Point Wells Store.
