Busselton Bowling Club
It was during 1903 that the suggestion of adding a Lawn Bowling Green to the town’s attractions was spoken of amongst the then residents and subsequently mentioned in the Municipal Council. The latter approved of the idea and a sum of 30 pounds was voted for the purpose of putting down three lawn bowls rinks on the recreation ground. Couch grass sods were lifted from some of the by-streets, and in a remarkably brief space a rather rough lawn bowls playing green resulted. An informal meeting of members of the Council (who by the way were eager to become bowlers) and those interested, was held in the Council Chamber on 28th September 1904, at which a provisional committee was formed to secure information relative to the formation of the Busselton Bowling Club Inc, and arrange details.
On October 11 1904,the provisional committee’s report was adopted, and the Busselton Bowling Club actually came into existence on that date. At a meeting of the Municipal Council held next day the club was given a tenancy at £10 per year for the Busselton Lawn Bowls Club.
Today The Summer program is the busiest, with Lawn Bowls 6 days a week during the season, which is scaled back to 3 days a week during the winter months.
The Busselton Bowling Club currently has approximately 280 members, with ages ranging from 10 to 85. Another highlight on the Bowls Calendar is Corporate Bowls during the Summer season.
Friday night dinners are open to Members, Corporate Bowlers and Members of the Public.
