We had a total of 64 clubs from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island celebrate our sport on June 1st, 2024. A full list of the clubs that participated in National Bowls Day 2024 can be found here: https://bowlscanada.com/en/programs-resources/club-development/national-bowls-day/.

We are excited to continue to host this annual next year on the first Saturday of June – June 7th, 2025! Another announcement will be sent out in the fall as clubs plan for the coming year and set schedules. We know that you are all busy with the current lawn bowling season, but if you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions for next year’s event, please do not hesitate to reach out! BCB will try our very best to make sure that National Bowls Day 2025 is yet another success for you and your club!
