Opening Day - 1960's

 

 

         Our story began in 1957. Residents in the Ascot Park area arranged a meeting to inaugurate a Bowling Club in the district.      In January 1959  the site on Marion Road was chosen.  The 1st opening of the A.P.B.C.  was held in 1960.   With the introduction    of Indoor Bowls the club grew rapidly and had to limit membership to 220.  As years progressed the club  house had to be   extended as membership reached 250 men and 135 ladies.

         Over the years the Club has been very successful at winning Pennants,State Titles as well as Championship titles.

         Night Owls and Indoor Bowls are also played at the Club.

         At present the Club has a mixed membership, ranging from teenagers to the high 80's.  So you see it is a sport for both   young and old.  To be involved is most important. meeting other people and making new friends can be most rewarding.

         Ascot Park Bowling Club is known as the friendly club.  If you are thinking of joining a Club please consider us - we would      be happy to see you.
