MEMBERSHIP

We welcome new members whether experienced bowlers or new to the game. We have 16 rinks on two greens. Our greens are renowned in the Lower Mainland for their quality.

Those who are new to the game should look at our New Bowlers page for more details.

In summer (late April to September) we generally host:

  • 4 inter-club tournaments

  • several Vancouver and District tournaments (see VNDBA.com for details),

  • the annual V&D President’s Cup,

  • the Women’s Classic Pairs League

  • the Wednesday Evening Triples and also

  • some fun club events.

In winter (October to April) we roll out the short mats to continue bowling indoors. The short mat game is played on our two 45 foot carpets.
