There is a 9-rink green situated in the northwest corner of the cricket outfield. This is in use during the summer months and can also be in operation at certain times in the winter. It has nine rinks with an excellent playing surface.

Club ladies triumph…
By Ian Marriott
Sunday 20th November, HKCC's Alice Chan and Maria See combined superbly to win the 'Final' of the Ladies Pairs Novices National Lawn Bowls competition - a thrilling game played at the Club de Recreio (on grass).
The event started in September and there were 5 Knockout rounds at various venues leading to the Final itself. These earlier rounds were all played in mid-week (evenings).
At the same time, both Alice and Maria were also 'vital cogs' in our Club Ladies league team who secured promotion. Quite a year!
Finally, the term 'Novices' now no longer applies to Alice and Maria - they cannot play in this Competition again - don't think that will bother 'em.
Really well done!
