Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club

We Celebrated 110 Years!

The Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club has a long and rich history as a lawn bowling and community organization.  Formed in 1912, our greens have been located at 25th & Granville, 26th & Selkirk and at our current location in Queen Elizabeth Park since 1967.  For a century we have provided our members and the community with opportunities for physical exercise, competition and fellowship and we will continue to be a friendly and sociable lawn bowling club.

Our birthday celebration was on Saturday, August 13, 2022

Organized by Elmer Morishita, Chair of the 110th  Anniversary Committee
and Betty-Ann Lee, President  VLBC.

Friendly Competition

At the VLBC we draw for teams during regular play, making sure that the opposing teams have complementary levels of experience. This way you get to play with and against most of the other members during the season.
