Pennant Teams

Bentleigh Bowling Club has enjoyed great success over recent years and currently has sides in Saturday divisions 1, 3 (2 sides) 6 (2 sides) and is planning to add a new Division 7 side for the 2018/2019 season.

There are two sides participating in mid-week pennant (Tuesdays) one of which played finals in 2017/18.

We also field 3 sides in the Tuesday night’s Southern Districts Electric Light competition in divisions 1, 2 and 4.

Of the 10 sides fielded in 2018/19, 9 played in finals – a remarkable achievement and we look to continue this level of competitiveness.

Expert Coaching

Our club’s senior coach, Keith Ronaldson, is available to provide expert guidance to beginners and seasoned bowlers and is capably supported by his team of Bowls Vic accredited coaches; Chris Michell and Mark Thompson. Peter Blee is an accomplished ex-coach and is also more than happy to continue assisting new and experienced bowlers to be their best.

Special Events

We have a keen Social Committee who are always looking for ways to keep us entertained when not bowling. Our Presentation Night and Christmas parties are always great nights. Thursday nights are not just for training during summer, so we’re open every Thursday evening for members to socialise.

Starting Out

A great way to start out at Bentleigh Bowling Club is to join as a Social Playing Member where you will have full access to the greens and coaching staff to get you off on the right track. When you’re ready, we’d love to see you progress to competitive pennant bowls and Full Membership.

Come down to the Club any Thursday evening (year round) or late Saturday afternoons during pennant season to meet some members and ask about joining.
