Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc

Welcome to the Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc website.

Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc play monthly tournaments at clubs from the Brisbane River north to Bribie Island and Glasshouse. However, we also play at other Clubs such as Gatton and some Brisbane Southside Clubs on request.

We welcome new members to Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc and you do not have to be playing your bowls on the Northside of Brisbane. We currently have members from such Clubs outside of the Northside as Gatton, Laidley, Wynnum and Manly.

Membership is only $20 per annum and this allows us to cover administration fees etc. Members are also eligible to play in our Club Championship Singles and Pairs and our Annual Medals for Players of the Year. Players are eligible to win one of three random draw Fuel Cards at our Monthly events … so what are you waiting for? Get on board and have a great day out with Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc in 2020.

We have also had players play with us from Victoria, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Non members are welcome to attend our Tournaments, but preference will be given to those who are members of our Association if we are short of rinks.

Manly Brekky Pairs

David Pearson (Carina) and Tony Watson (Aspley) represented BNABAi at Manly at the Brekky Pairs on Sunday 3rd April 2022.

We had a loss in the first game, but came back to win the second game.

It was a great morning and was thoroughly enjoyed as usual.

Don’t forget to let us know if you are planning to play in events in the BNABAi colours and we will advertise your game and results.

Aspley Bowls Club Advert

Aspley Bowls Club have kindly placed an advertisement for BNABAi on their television screen in the Club Room.

They also announced our upcoming tournament and will continue to do so for us.

This is all a part of our having moved to Aspley Bowls Club as our Home Base for 2022.

Please support Aspley Bowls Club if you can.

Aspley is our New Home Club

BNABAi have moved their home club to Aspley Bowls Club for the future.

Aspley Bowls Club Management have agreed to have BNABAi Home Base at their Club. Consequently, our Singles and Pairs Club Championships will be played at Aspley for 2022. Please check the Calendar of Events for changes of venue.

The Committee looked at a few potential New Clubs after NSBC decided that they required our Membership Register in order for BNABAi to remain with NSBC as a home base. This would have been an invasion of our members privacy, in the view of our Committee, and so we have moved to our new home at Aspley.

BNABAi look forward to a long standing partnership into the future with Aspley Bowls Club.

Upcoming BNABAi Member Activity 2021

We have no teams planning to attend events at other clubs throughout the upcoming Months

The BNABAi wish all of our teams and members representing our club good luck and would like to thank them for taking the time to help promote our group.

It is great to see our members getting out and about and hopefully playing in their BNABAi uniforms. Don’t forget if you are attending Club Days or Events and you plan to wear your uniform, please send me photos and a write up on how you went for our website and Social Media. Also if you are planning to play in District or State Championships. We would love to promote what you are doing.

Bernborough Ascot Visit

Please put the following date in your Calendars and advise if you and your friends or family are able to attend this Sponsorship Event.

BNABAi are invited to attend a Community Connect Event at Bernborough Ascot, 48 Hampden Street, Ascot on Friday 13th May 2022. It is at 10.30am and will include a morning tea.

This is a great opportunity for BNABAi to raise some funds towards our trophies and presentation night.

I attended last year with my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed the outing. There is no sales pressure at all, just the opportunity for our Members and Guests to see our Sponsors product.

Last year we started with a Barista made coffee in the Cafe at Bernborough Ascot and then moved to the Theatre and had a 20 min presentation, after that we looked at a Unit on the ground floor and then returned to the Cafe for Wine and Cheese. This year is Morning Tea. All up took about 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours.

We need to have 15 people attend to make this work, so please advise if you are able to attend.
