John Spiers wins Two Bowl Singles

On Saturday, March 27, John Spiers edged out Ted Crum to win the Two-Bowls Singles Tournament. Twelve entrants played two games with the four highest scoring players competing in a semi-final round. Two of the club’s newest members, both graduate students at Cal, were in the tournament and made their presence known by winning games against more seasoned members. Pictures will be posted in the Gallery section soon.

Free Lessons

 

Our coaches will be on the green on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:00 to give lessons. It’s FREE, and you have nothing to bring except a desire to have some fun and flat soled shoes or sneakers.

Free lessons this Saturday and Sunday…unless it’s raining.
Note: There will be no free lessons on Saturday, 6 (October and Saturday, 7 October due to club events.


If you like – and we’d love it – get together a group of four or six and learn together. You’ll be involved in a match after just a few minutes of instruction.

Indoor seating is available for several dozen guests.

If you want to offer lawn bowling instruction to your guests, BLBC will arrange for coaches to give individualized instruction. Basic rules and mechanics of the game can be covered in just a few minutes. Normally, our students are involved in a game within the first 15 minutes.

The basic techniques are easy to lean, and quickly entertaining.

Past events have seen buffet lunches served on the patio or an expresso cart providing just enough caffeine to keep the crowd enthused.

rental-veranda

Folks enjoy watching the games from the  veranda 

Rental pricing is $20.00 per guest (non-bowling children are not charged). This pricing is based upon facility rental of three hours and includes instruction for lawn bowling, all equipment, volunteer BLBC coaches, private use of the clubhouse, kitchen, patio, and bowling green. Add $50 for each additional hour after 3 hours. There is also a small cleaning deposit.

If you’re curious, please contact us at least three weeks before the date of your event. We’ll do our best to accommodate you!
