Celebrating 100 years 1913-2013
We are a small but successful lawn bowling club in the leafy suburb of Fairfield, Victoria, established in 1913.
We participate in Bowls Victoria’s Tuesday and Saturday pennant competition, as well as regular social and intra-club games.
We are a club that has always batted well above our average irrespective of our small “quirky” stature.
We are a friendly club, where everyone is made to feel welcome.
New and prospective members will be made to feel at home immediately, whether you just want to play casually, or more competitively. Contact us for details.
The club is proud to receive much needed sponsorship from Barry Plant.
Get behind the team at Barry Plant and show our support whenever the opportunity presents.
Jodie and the team from the Northcote Office would be more than happy to assist with any enquiries.

A message from the Chairman of Selectors, Mr David Duncan..
All club games are now on the board. The top listed player makes contact and arranges the date. The bottom named player arranges a marker.
Ensure all games are completed but the set date.
The Saturday top side had a stirring win against a very strong MCC Kew Sports on their carpet green. Sporting several Premier Division Bowlers and some International champions, Fairfield managed 3 rinks up and a memorable 13 shot win that no one saw coming. This moves us into 4th spot.
The Saturday second side had a big win at home against Ivanhoe with 3 rinks up eventually winning by 59 shots.
This leaves the side in second place and looking brilliant towards the finals.
The AGM was held Sunday 28th June at the club with a terrific turnout.
There was a brief presentation by 2 of the club sponsors prior to the AGM along with a breakfast of bacon and eggs. A big thankyou to Tom from UFS and Tim from Back in Motion for attending.
The Fairfield Bowling Club offers both the clubhouse and bowling green for hire to facilitate a vast array of functions.
Our rates are modest and hospitality second to none.
