The very best thing about lawn bowls is anyone can do it and it really is one of those games that takes minutes to yearn…but years to master.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re twelve or eighty-two, male or female you can play lawn bowls, this makes it ideal for family and work parties, team building or just hanging out with friends.
To cater for the many different ways you can enjoy bowls and the Club, we have a number of different packages you can choose from.
With all our packages guests are welcome to use the historic Clubrooms. All guests to the Club must sign in and are reminded that the St Kilda Sports Club is first and foremost a Club. The members welcome guests to enjoy the facilities and spirit of the Club, however all guests are expected to treat members and their Club with the utmost respect.
No external catering is allowed as we have our own preferred caterers, self-catering is available using the club’s BBQ facilities and snacks and small food are welcome.
Our terms and conditions are in the Function Booking Form 2017, which is directly below the green book a rink button.
