Bowling and Pétanque is for EVERYONE at Novar Gardens 

The Board of Management and members of the Novar Gardens Bowling and Pétanque Inc. extend an open invitation to all people interested in the sport of lawn bowls or Pètanque whether you are an experienced bowler or Pètanque player or a person interested in learning to play. 

New players regardless of their age or playing ability are always welcome at our club. If you are new to the sport, we can provide you with a set of bowls to suit your hand size and provide you with personal coaching. All that you need is the desire to learn how to play lawn bowls and a pair of flat soled shoes. If that sounds like you, then we will have you playing lawn bowls in no time at all.

Pètanque Rink alternates between Sunday and Friday. This is a relaxed enjoyable game for all ages and abilities

For more information ring Roland on 0407 605 742

We pride ourselves on providing our members with a fun and friendly atmosphere and encourage the enjoyment of both competitive as well as social play; that way everyone can experience the pleasure of a game.

Our green is a 12 rink needle punched synthetic carpet which means that there is no sand or dirt on the playing surface or in the ditches. This type of playing surface means that there is no scratching of the bowls. Excepting in the event of the green being covered with water, this unique surface allows us to play everyday of the year even after there has been a short downpour.

Our club is licensed and we have facilities for handicapped bowlers plus excellent off-street parking.

Whether you are looking to book a social or corporate event, our excellent staff and friendly members will welcome you to make use of our club's bar and catering facilities at a reasonable cost.
