The Montmorency Bowling Club regularly partakes in a number of tournaments during each year. We like to maintain our presence in the area and take every opportunity to show what a good club Montmorency is.

Easter 2024

With our Clubrooms still awaiting completion another challenging year was experienced but overcome by Dianne and the hard-working Social Bowls committee. Again, there was no Saturday Four’s, but Monday Mixed Triples continued. There were 22 very competitive teams entered and despite some annoying showers a good day was enjoyed by all.
Overall, Winners: B Wilson, O Pauli & J Hose

Runner-up: J Lander, P Hanlon & A Lander

Best 1st Game: G Greenway, J Ward & P VanEeken.
Runner-up 1st Game: F Phillips, T Centorino & H Wilson.
Best 2nd Game: C Chidley, W Fogerty & D Code
Runner-up 2nd Game: K Webster, I Webster & K Webster
Best 3rd Game: B Moloney, R Strachan & J Hall
Runner-up 3rd Game: V Lay, D Weston & B Lay

Easter 2023
With our Clubrooms undergoing renovations there were many challenges which were overcome due to the hard work of the Social Bowls committee lead by Di Schliebs. Saturday Mixed Fours was not held and Monday was changed to Mixed Triples.
The Community Hall was used for Lunch & after the game presentations.
Although the weather was not kind with many showers passing through this did not dampen the enthusiasm, standard of bowls,  competition and enjoyment of all.



Easter 2022
After a difficult couple of years when our Easter tournaments were cancelled it was good to get a couple of games organised.
Unfortunately Monday Mixed  4’s  was cancelled due to lack of support and replaced with a selected game of Triple with increased “Easter Prize money”.
Saturday Open Triples got off to and uneasy start as  2 teams on the list did not turn up as it appears that their teams were entered in the wrong competition.
A couple of helpers on the day made up Pairs and the day finally started.
This was achieved without major sponsors who we hope will return next year and both Saturday & Monday will return to be our major events.

The weather was perfect and a great days bowling was enjoyed by all.



Monty – Australia Day Mixed Medley  2020

Great weather provided ideal playing conditions for Teams to play Singles/ Triples Pairs & Fours.
It is a day where 64 players pit their skills against selected opponents.
The day went off extremely smoothly, thanks to the hard work of all the organizing team. Thank you.
> A special thanks to our Sponsor:   


Prizes were awarded for each game with an overall Team win.
Prize money was presented by Brian from Grand Pacific Tours

Phil McMahon, Shirley Crapper, Grahame Napper, Janice Figgins (absent).
