The Bow Valley Lawn Bowling club welcomes everyone to come play lawn bowling in a fun and relaxed environment.  We provide both competitive and recreational play.

The Bow Valley Lawn Bowling Club has been a fixture in the Calgary's Hillhurst neighbourhood for over 80 years, since 1932.

It has been recognized as a historical resource by the City of Calgary. 

We have one professionally maintained green with six rinks.

Our bowling season runs May through to October, (weather permitting). Our clubhouse is available for events year round.  Check the event calendar for our annual Open House (June), Black and White Night (July), and BBQ (August).

Lawn bowling offers a great way to meet people, socialize, and get to know your neighbours. Lawn bowls caters to everyone regardless of age or skill level. Come try lawn bowling in a fun and relaxed environment.

What's New for 2017!

  • Club Season Opening - This members' only event is traditionally held on Victoria Day (May 22 this year), but last year it was earlier because of the wonderful weather. Let's hope we can hold it earlier again in 2017.
  • Club rentals are available to members.  Limited club rentals are available to the public.

Club History Project - We are currently trying to updated the history of the club by digitizing all the old club photos and historic documents.  Some of the old photos will appear under the Club History section in the near future. Currently we have many pictures from the late 1980's through the 1990's of former members we cannot identify.  If you are a former club member or related to a former club member please feel free to contact us by email or phone to help us with this project. 

Special Events - Open to all members and their guests (extra fee for guests)
