Outdoor Bowls

If you have some spare time, perhaps recently retired or working part-time, then lawns bowls may appeal to you. It is a low-impact fun pastime which can bring great personal satisfaction independent of your gender, age, skills and abilities. It is a great opportunity to develop new friendships and to become part of your local community. Club coaches will provide free help with your initial introduction to the game and develop your game to whatever level you desire. Spare bowls are available for trial practice sessions and social events until you decide to commit further. The bowls section presently comprises some 90 women and men of many ages and is always looking for new members.

Our all-weather green allows all-year round play and attracts many visitors to our popular any combination (men and women) winter mid-week tournaments since their home grass greens are closed. Visiting teams are attracted by the friendly company, the generous prizes and the good value food and drinks available at the Cossie Club.
The greens are located immediately behind the Cossie Club main building and easy access from the adjacent carparking. High-mast lighting allows twilight social events and club inter-house challenges. Twilight business events are encouraged to attract new and younger members.Our large clubhouse comprises our tearooms, kitchen and toilets, and a large outdoor covered seating area accommodates members during morning tea and lunch intervals. It is also well appreciated when we hold our social Bowls BBQ events throughout the summer.

The outdoor bowls section has a busy calendar, both Men’s and Women’s events, throughout the summer and the winter, incorporating Counties Manukau Centre Events and various Manurewa Club Open and Junior competitions. Most Centre Events are held at weekends and Manurewa Club events are held both weekday and weekends. Our weekly Social Rollups are held at 9.30 am on Tuesday mornings in the summer, and on Thursday mornings in the winter. So, there is something for everyone.If lawn bowls appeals to you then we would love to have you come and join the outdoor bowls section.
