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.

HKCC is represented by two Men’s teams and one Ladies', the main Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Association Premier League season being in the summer months. There is also a Winter League.

During the year, various competitions are featured, including Club Championships, the famous John Younghusband Trophy and 1st July Handover Competition. There is also a popular programme for newcomers to the sport, "Lawn Bowls for Beginners" and other Social Matches such as "Bare Foot" Lawn Bowls".

The Perfect End - 9 out of 9!

On the 14th January 2017, a rare event was witnessed by some in the Lawn Bowls Section.

You may ask... was it Glyn drinking water, Mobin turning up early for a game, Roxy avoiding the chicken wings, Clifford ordering an adult sized meal or Graeme uttering words with more than two syllables? While such events would clearly qualify, from a bowling perspective, the achievement of Brian Hunter (Skip), Clifford Levy and Keith Roberts, in scoring 9 points on one end for the HKCC A Team, was a special moment.

To put this into perspective for our cricketing friends, this has been equated by someone in the know, to a cricketer taking all 10 wickets in aninnings. For lawn bowls, in a team game of four players it is common in a season for one or maybe two teams at most to score an '8'. In fact, a special badge is awarded to those who accomplish this task at our Lawn Bowls Section Annual Dinner. On the green, '8's are often accompanied by jubilant cries of, "8!!!" (what else?) to alert all within shouting distance of the team's bowling prowess. Our skip's response when told of this momentous achievement was somewhat more reserved with a simple "Really?", but then again, he is an Accountant.

News from the Convenor…

By Andrew Gerrard

At time of writing, the winter triples lawn bowls league is coming to an end. Both Men's A and B teams narrowly missed out on promotion on the final game of the season while the ladies’ team are still in with a chance of promotion as they head into their final game.

I would like to thank captains Brian Hunter, Texas Sze and Eunice Ng for their efforts and the success they have helped the Club to achieve during the winter league!

Also, congratulations to Graeme Hand and Esther Chan who recently won the Club's Men's and Ladies' singles competition and will go on to represent HKCC in this year's Champion of Champions competition.
