Our club has a relatively small membership but is very friendly. We welcome new members whether they are beginners or experienced bowlers.

Our goal is to ensure that the whole community has access to the game of bowls for fun, gentle exercise and healthy competition. We aim to increase our membership numbers to a point where we can convert our old grass green to a modern synthetic green to complement our newly installed synthetic green and run several teams.

To ensure we maintain our reputation as a Community Club with access to all we have a portable ramp which can be used not just by wheelchairs but also by anyone perhaps not quite as mobile as others.

The club will continue to support diversity and equal opportunity.

Community Involvement@YJBC

It was great to see the teachers from  Yarra Junction Primary and their families enjoy a roll up at the end of term. The kids had a great time too with the rubber balls and junior bowls.

The VCAL students from CIRE are undertaking  a three week Bowlng Programme on Fridays during May 2021. We look forward to seeing them advance their skills over the weeks ahead.

Community groups are again making use of the venue and facilities as they did pre Covid . Probus, Eastern Health ,The Red Cross all meet regularly and bookings are available to the public for hall and green hire.
