The Ngunguru Bowling Club 'The Friendly Club' of the north is a fun welcoming and relaxed catering for beginners through to experienced bowlers. It has one of the best artificial greens in Northland and visitors from outside clubs tell us that our grounds gardens and buildings are as good as any club around.


Tournaments are held throughout the year and there is also the chance to play in twilight bowls with music playing and a final night of a free BBQ and maybe a decent prize. In addition members can enter into tournaments held in other Northland clubs and triples teams regularly travel to clubs such as Hikurangi, Kensington, Maungatapere, Onerahi or further afield to Waipu or One Tree Point. 



New members are always made to feel welcome at Ngunguru. "Roll-ups" are held every Thursday and Saturday at 12.45pm, you will receive plenty of advice being teamed up with experienced players, you won't even need your own bowls! Play ends with afternoon tea and prize-giving where winning teams take home - YES!! - a whole bar of chocolate! 
The downside is that it costs $3 (incl. afternoon tea)

Subscriptions are $80 for the season or $60 for limited player member - they can play in roll-ups and practise whenever they like, but cannot enter tournaments.


Have a go!!! It's a great sport with loads of laughs, one of the easiest sports you will ever play, and it is not called "The Friendly Club" lightly. Go on......give it a crack
