The Berkeley Lawn Bowling Club board of directors has suspended activities at the BLBC lawn bowling green for at least 30 days effective March 16, 2020. This action is taken for the safety and health of our community, neighbors, and members in response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation. Free lessons normally scheduled for March 14 & 15 are cancelled.
Members of our community and club are encouraged to follow “safe practices” described by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), state, and local health services.
We regret any inconvenience caused in these changes, and hope to see our fellow members and neighbors on the green soon. Until then: be safe, everyone.
GO OUT AND PLAY!
FREE LESSONS SATURDAY & SUNDAY, 10 UNTIL NOON.

Outdoor bowling on a bowling green is a classic sport that goes back hundreds of years and continues today in Berkeley. The retro sport we love is modern day fun out in the fresh air. Walt Disney was an avid lawn bowler.
Please, stop by and check out the action be it lessons or just to watch on Wednesday or Friday afternoon. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
