WELCOME and ABOUT US
Established in 1938, the club has earned the reputation as 'the friendliest little club in town'.
Located right in the heart of Toowoomba’s CBD in Victoria Street, the Toowoomba City Bowls Club is just a short walk from major shopping centres, accommodation, theatres, restaurants and fashion houses.
With a membership of approx 100 men and 30 ladies, Toowoomba City is one of the smaller clubs in size in the district.
Toowoomba City Bowls Club currently has one well manicured dwarf green and can cater for a maximum of 64 bowlers at any one time.
The greens are going through changes in line with the major construction of the QIC Gardentown/Grand Central Shopping Centre redevelopment and on completion a beautiful new half green will be in use by end of 2016.
Members and guests have been fortunate to view the redevelopment on a weekly, month by month basis, and have been working hand in hand with Probuild to better the CBD to serve the Toowoomba and Regional community.
The clubhouse is one of the better venues to watch a game with large viewing windows or to relax and play one of our six up to the minute gaming machines.
Our members are always ready with a smile and willing to give new players the advice and tips they need to improve their game.
Toowoomba City Bowls Club is the best little club in town!
