At the orientation we will explain how the club operates, including;
ORIENTATION DAY 2018 (Date and Time - TBD)
Please Join us for information, refreshments and an introduction to the game before the new season begins in the Club House, 2160 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver.
The club has many certified
coaches to ensure that you have the
opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to start bowling quickly and enjoy the game. There is an initial cost of $30, which covers the cost of lessons during the first month, and is applied to the club fees when you join. Lesson sessions are very flexible and are taught in small groups or individually. By the time New Member' s Day occurs, most new members are well on their way in a sport new to them.
First, Second and Third year bowlers participate in PONY LEAGUE every Tuesday evening. A team of coaches, guide the bowlers in their development. Junior sessions are Tuesday and Friday evenings throughout the season
There is something for everyone, with bowling activities every day of the week. New bowlers are encouraged to take part in all the club activities, including the Mens' and Ladies' Aggregate Play, Novice Tournaments, Pony League, Club Tournaments and the Daily Draws.
The North Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club is one of the most successful clubs in Canada. In 2012 the club received the "Outstanding Club Award" from the Vancouver and District Lawn Bowling Association. In 2013, NVLBC along with the West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club, successfully hosted the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships. As a club we were recipients with WVLBC as the "Outstanding Community Sport Organization Award" at the North Shore 2013 Sport Awards. These honors were achieved from the strong volunteer contribution of the club's members. It is the volunteers' work behind the scenes; the work on the greens, the maintenance of the machines, the gardening, the painting, the kitchen staff, the members participation in social activities and everyone's willingness to chip in their time and talents, that make this one of the best clubs in the country.
Not many other sports can boast age and gender equality. Lawn bowls will find a 75 year bowler beating a 25 year old and women competing equally with men. Mixed teams are the norm for many lawn bowling events which makes the game fun and sociable. In a addition, lawn bowling is probably the most inexpensive sport in the country! Our Junior program is available for young people ages 10 - 18 years. This a great sport for the Summer season.
"Orientation Day" was Sunday, April 23rd 2017. BUT It's not too late to join! Lessons begin on May 1st for new bowlers. (See Schedule Page for details) Anyone interested in finding more information about the club or wishing to fill out a membership form, should contact our Membership Director, Pat Skinner.
