Lawn Bowls


Golden Oldies World Lawn Bowls Festivals
22 - 29 April 2018



See the Brochure here

Lawn bowls will join the Golden Oldies fraternity at the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018. It is a sport that lends itself ideally to the Golden Oldies ideal of 'Fun, Friendship and Fraternity' in sport. But for those who play there will be no records kept, no scores published – it's all about enjoyment of playing and meeting people during and after games.

Christchurch is a superb venue for the Festival, bowls has a long tradition in the Garden City, and it has hosted the World Championships in bowls twice. The Festival will be open to individuals and teams and promises some great bowling on Christchurch's outstanding greens based around the city. Individuals who enter will be made up into teams.

Some may want to test their skills in a more competitive environment but those who are wanting to play in the 'social' category will be catered for as well. One of the cornerstones of the Golden Oldies movement, is the opportunity it offers to make lasting friendships by meeting and playing with people from all around New Zealand and the world.

Golden Oldies is not just about those who play the game but their partners who are part and parcel of the success of the concept. And it's not all about bowls, the optional midweek picnic outing is always a highlight as are the pre-tournament get together and the end of tournament farewell dinner.

Bowls in Christchurch will be an outstanding part of the 10-sport Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 and many new friendships are certain to be forged during the four-week long event.
