In mid 2022, Capalaba Sports Club completed the upgrade of its lawn bowls greens creating two state-of-the-art undercover synthetic greens. These facilities saw an instant increase in memberships attracting Queensland State Bowlers and emerging Jackaroos, Kane and Jacob Nelson. Due to the influx of high quality bowlers, their male bowlers have won the right to have a team represented in the Premier League, one of Queensland’s most prestigious competitions.

The club is inclusive and welcomes people of all ages, genders, backgrounds, and skill levels, and training and development programs support players’ growth and help them reach their full potential.

This year, the club’s male bowlers had representation in eight pennant sides, with all divisions making it to the finals. Divisions 1, 4, and 5 emerged as champions, marking the most flags won since 2009. Division 1 were also the runners up at the recent State Pennant Championships. Additionally, two divisions played in the G8 finals, and the Men’s Fours were the Gateway district Champion of Champions.

Capalaba lady bowlers participated in two pennant divisions and became the champions of division 4. They also triumphed in the Gateway novice pairs.

However, it’s not all about competition at Capalaba Sports Club. Every year, thousands of barefoot bowlers come to enjoy the social, health, and well-being benefits of this low-impact sport. A local school has even added lawn bowls to their interschool sports program, and some fortunate students will have an exclusive session with an Australian bowler later this month.

Capalaba Sports Club is deeply committed to the community and firmly believes in investing in the future of lawn bowls. If you’re looking for a sport to get involved in, find out more by calling 3390 3011.
