Join Us and learn to play Lawn Bowls
We are a friendly club with approximately 100 full time players and we welcome all new players. We also have an attractive social programme.
Our No 1 green is a TigerTurf artificial surface which is rated as the best artificial green in our Centre. It has been favourably commented on by both our club and visiting players alike.
Early this year, when I got a flier about Community Bowls at the Kapiti Bowling Club, I decided to give lawn bowls a try. I had never played the game before.
It did't take long for me to become hooked! One of the main reasons for this is the warm welcome that I received from all club members. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful. Members have gone out of their way to make me feel part of the club and to help me with my bowling. Without fail, people have been encouraging, understanding and patient.
I have also received excellent coaching from qualified coaches who couldn't be more helpful or more generous with their time. All in all the whole experience to date has been positive - and fun. I have played sport all my life and never have I been made more welcome at a club. Although my bowling is definitely a ''work in progress'', I can't wait to see what my bowling future will bring.
For many years I have had an interest in bowls but for various reasons I had never played the game. I retired in October 2014 and decided the time was right to join a Bowling Club. I made enquiries and was advised that the club to join was the Kapiti Bowling club at Raumati Beach, the main reason being that this club was the friendliest and most welcoming.
I have indeed found this to be true and I have been highly impressed with the coaches, the coaching programme and the support structures that are in place at the Club. Playing bowls at the Kapiti Bowling Club has been a rewarding and enriching experience and I can recommend joining if you are thinking of taking up the game.
I give my assurance that all new players will be welcomed and integrated into the Club. Come and join us - you will not regret it.
