The St. Albans-Merivale Bowing Club and the Elmwood Bowling Club have amalgamated. For the next period of time there will be one club but both greens will be utilized.
Both greens are reasonably close to the city centre.
Elmwood Park provides for competitive, friendly and social bowls in a variety of ways, while community and corporate bowling events take place on a regular basis.
Elmwood Park produces good playing surfaces, is able to host highly successful tournaments, is keen to develop younger bowlers and has a strong volunteer base to support the clubs’ successes.
The non competitive bowler is, however, looked after very well within the club.
There are excellent playing facilities that promote lawn bowling its best.
There are members providing free bowls coaching.
Friday social evenings occur at Donald Place, 4.00, and Heaton Street, 5.00.
The newly formed amalgamated club will be a member of The Elmwood Club, an umbrella organisation for a large number of other sporting clubs. This provides major benefits for the pooling of resources and minimises the duplication of roles.
