Membership

The Sandy Bay Bowls and Community Club, located close to the River Derwent, has two grass greens offering excellent playing conditions for up to 112 players at a time.  In the playing season, which lasts for approximately six months, the greens are usually open on six days each week. Social games are organised regularly for the enjoyment of members and visitors are always made welcome.

Sandy Bay has teams in the Saturday Pennant, Midweek (Wednesday) and Thursday Pennant competitions.

A social bowling competition is held each Friday afternoon during the season and our popular barefoot bowling competitions are held on Wednesday and Friday evenings.

The Club is fully licensed and is a great place to socialise with club members and friends. Bar Hours over the bowling season are: Monday to Friday from 3pm until 7+pm. Saturday from 12 noon onward. The bar is open from 4.00pm to 6.00pm on Fridays during winter.

Throughout the season we also have enjoyable social functions and new members, friends and visitors are most welcomed to attend.

New members are always welcome at the Club. If you are interested in playing lawn bowls contact the Secretary (using the ‘Contact Us’ link on this page) who can arrange for you to get on the green and have some initial help in ‘having a roll-up’. Bowls are available for you to borrow.
