Barefoot Bowls at Malvern

Barefoot Bowls at Malvern (unavailable from Nov until mid march 2024)

Thank you for visiting our website. We wish to advise that, while the clubhouse is still available for functions, the bowling green is currently being upgraded and is unavailable for bowling. We expect to be back on the green in March 2024. This is an exciting development for the club as it will mean we can bowl all year around. If you would like to contact the club, please email [email protected] The clubhouse facilities are still available. They can be used for many types of functions and are very popular. 

In a world of synthetic everything Malvern Bowling Club still proudly maintains one of Melbourne’s finest, real, bentgrass bowling greens. Bentgrass is widely known as “the supermodel of the grass world”.

And there is nothing like the feel of bare feet on lush, green grass, particularly in Spring, Summer and Autumn! Unlike synthetic bowling greens that magnify heat and glare, real lawn remains pleasant to walk on, even on the hottest days. Barefoot bowls at Malvern is cool and relaxed.

Lawn bowls is a game that’s safe, easy to learn and where even first time novices can surprise everyone by bowling that one great bowl that beats the hardened pro and wins the match!
Barefoot bowls at Malvern Bowling Club is the ideal and fun way for any group to break the ice and get everyone involved – regardless of ability – in a fun, informal and collaborative activity.

Malvern Bowling Club believes that living with a disability should not be a barrier to participating in and enjoying all that life offers. At Malvern, we have mechanical bowling aids, green access is available via portable ramps and our volunteers are experienced in assisting bowlers with a disability to join in the fun.
Rink hire also includes assistance from experienced volunteer club members, who organise jacks and mats and are happy to explain the bowls basics, get everyone started and assist with tips and advice.
