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.

Chermside Results

Chermside Bowls Club was the venue for Brisbane Northside Arm Bowlers Association Inc on Sunday 11th September 2022. We had 24 players from 13 Clubs competing. We had players from Toombul, Northern Suburbs, Caboolture Lakes, Coorparoo, Pine Rivers, Aspley, Narangba, Kallangur, Bramble Bay, Glasshouse, Samford and Brighton competing. It was a great effort from all who attended!

Graeme Pitt and Pat Fitzell (Pine Rivers) were the winners of our 3 Bowls Pairs with a 2 + 5 and Runners Up were Russell Walmsley and Martyn Walton (Glasshouse) with a 2 + 3.

Overall winners for the day were Ken Nelson (NSBC) and Marko Kendes (Toombul) with a 4 + 23 and Runners Up were Graeme Pitt and Pat Fitzell (Pine Rivers) and Peter Leddy and Rob Glazebrook (Aspley) with a 4 + 8. It doesn’t get tighter than that.

There were a lot of closely fought games on the day.

I would like to thank Chermside Bowls Club for their continued support and lovely sandwiches and catering for the day. We hope to see you again in 2023.
