New York Lawn Bowling Club

Lawn bowling in the heart of NYC's Central Park.

Lawn bowls is
for everyone

The New York Lawn Bowling Club is committed to sharing the fun of bowling with New Yorkers of all ages and abilities. A game of skill and acumen; not strength, lawn bowling is especially popular with seniors and those physically challenged persons who have few other alternatives for outdoor competitive and communal exercise.

The clubs hosts a competitive summer league and several tournaments throughout the season, which are perfect for players seeking friendly competition.

Corporate & Community Events

To bring the joys of lawn bowling in the beauty of Central Park to a broader range of New Yorkers the New York Lawn Bowling Club supports private and corporate groups holding events on the green. The Club actively engages with groups to insure that their events are successful from organizing all aspects of the games through advising on and supporting logistics.
