There are two main ways we bowl at Malvern Bowling Club – socially for a bit of fun, or in more serious Pennant competition.

Social

Social bowls options at MBC include;

  • Wednesday Barefoot Bowls, Bar and Community Meal – This kicks off around 5 pm every Wednesday night between October and May and you don’t need to be a member to join in the fun! Just phone us by 3 pm Monday, let us know how many of you would like to come along (so we can cater for you) and whether you’d like to roll a bowl or prefer to just grab a glass of something refreshing from the bar and watch. At MBC we pride ourselves on being a community club, so dinner is deliberately a low cost, healthy, convivial, ‘cheap and cheerful’ meal (often cooked on the barbecue) by club volunteers, to suit the budgets of the broadest possible range of people in the Stonnington Community.

  • Book Your Own Rink – We also accept group bookings for those wishing to play in a corporate or family group. Click here for further info.

  • Jack Attack – Stay tuned for details.

  • Thursday Night Training – Although training at Malvern Bowling Club is as much social as serious (with lots of laughs and a hint of light-hearted sledging!) we bat above our weight in serious competition and the club overall is currently on the rise. Training nights are a great opportunity to dip your toe in the water. If you’re curious about learning to bowl, just walk through the front gate one Thursday night after 4 pm, during the bowls season from early October to early March, grab the nearest bowler and ask them to introduce you to one of our coaches or committee members.

  • Friday Drinks – Simply drop in to the club late on a Friday afternoon (between October and May) around 4.30 pm, when a few of our members will be sharing a drink, recapping the week and perhaps rolling a lazy bowl or two. This is a great chance to get a feel for the place and if you ask nicely someone will usually be happy to find a set of club bowls for you to try your hand with.

Pennant

Malvern Bowling Club is a small and tight knit club that proudly bats above its weight in competition with other, larger clubs in Bowls Victoria’s ‘Metropolitan Pennant’ competition. Competition options at MBC include;

  • Saturday Pennant – Malvern currently fields three teams. These are;

    • Division 4 (Section 7)

    • Division 6 (Section 6)

    • Division 6, ‘6 a Side’ (Section 2)

  • Midweek (Tuesday) Pennant – Malvern Bowling Club currently fields two teams in the Bowls Victoria Metropolitan Midweek Pennant. These are;

    • Division 2 (Section 7)

    • Division 5 (Section 8)

  • Sandbelt Tuesday Night Twilight – The correct name for this competition is ‘Southern Districts Electric Light Bowls Association Inc (‘SDELBA’ for short). It’s heaps of fun and is a great way for anyone who wants to try a little competitive bowling, but in a light-hearted, no pressure and fun twilight atmosphere. You can read all about the history of it here.
