As such until the 22nd of November when we see the latest round of restrictions we are not accepting any barefoot bowls or event bookings. At this point the Auburn Bowls club has to look after our members first and a further decision will me made on or shortly after the 22nd. We thank everybody for their understanding it is a tough time for everyone, and we want nothing more than to throw open the doors and welcome every one in.

The Woman from the Snowy

At Auburn Bowls Club Monday 4th
November 7:15pm Seated for 7:30pm start.

This Melbourne Cup Eve, we are combining our famous Wine & Cheese evening with a very special event for members and their family and friends, with guest speaker Leigh Woodgate.

In the early 1990s, Leigh was a champion steeplechase jockey, and the only woman to win the Great Mountain Race in the Victorian High Country. On 1 July 1994, Leigh suffered a life-threatening fall from her mount during a race that was broadcast nationally. Her injuries were horrific – nearly every bone was broken, both lungs were punctured, she had brain damage, a detached retina, and she spent 17 days in a coma.

This is not about racing: It’s the truly inspiring story of a young woman’s fight for survival and her strength and courage against the odds, and against horrendous injuries and pain.

It’s a story of determination, and it will leave you inspired.

Members $30 a Ticket
Non Members $35 a Ticket
A Table of 8 $240 with a Complementary bottle of Wine.

Tickets on Sale now from Here

We are offering a Complementary drink upon arrival. This is an event you should not miss.

The Hon Josh Frydenberg was presented with a certificate as Patron of Auburn Bowls Club, and the Hon John Kennedy raised the Victorian State flag made a great start to a day of competition bowls.

Some nail-biting last games led to the Le Pine sponsored Triples tournament being won by “Bundy’s” team from Richmond Union Bowls Club and Runners Up from our neighbours Hawthorn Bowls Club. Female and Male bowlers from Mooroolbark, Lalor, Ivanhoe, & Footscray Park joined Auburn, RU, Hawthorn and MCC for a days bowling under the sun.  The youngest participant was 10 year old Darby and a gentleman from Auburn who’s over 85 years proves that bowls IS A GAME FOR EVERYBODY.

The Final Results for the Day.
