A progressive and inclusive bowling club committed to meeting the competitive and
social bowls needs of its members and the local community
Morrison Avenue Bowling Club Inc. was established in 1959, and has two cottula Greens measuring 36 metres by 36 metres.
We are located at 30 Morrison Avenue in the Papanui/Northcote area of Christchurch.
Morrison Avenue runs between Sawyers Arms Road and Langdons Road.
We provide bowling greens 7 days a week for both Female and Male players of all ages and abilities. Our season runs from approximately the third Saturday in September to the second Saturday in April. During the winter season we have indoor bowling (with outdoor bowls) with Ladies playing on Mondays and Wednesdays and the Men on Tuesdays and Mixed on Fridays (men run event) and Saturdays (ladies run event).
During the summer season we have two Triples Tournaments (Any combination) and one 8x bowl Pairs Tournament (Any combination) each month as well as a Ladies Triples Tournament in January. With annual club members tournaments and three social annual inter-club games, this gives bowlers plenty of variation and choice.
We run a very successful Business House Tournament which starts in January and runs for 6-week period on Wednesday Evenings between 6-15 pm and 8-15 pm. This is a fours tournament and each team must have at least of two non-bowlers and no more than two full time bowlers. This is very popular and fills both Greens.
