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.

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 Thursday 18th August 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.

Narangba Is Next

Please note that the next Tournament for BNABAi is to be held at Narangba Bowls Club on Sunday 14th August 2022.
