Welcome to Bowls Napier

We are a vibrant club in the wonderful Hawkes Bay situated in the heart of Napier’s Art Deco suburb – Marewa.

Bowls Napier exists after the amalgamation of The Napier Bowling Club and The Marewa Bowling Club in 1999. Marewa Park is next door and is the home for several other sporting codes

The Napier South Football Club use our clubrooms as their meeting place. Cards and Mah-jong are played every Monday 1:30pm. Everyone most welcome.

For bowlers we have three great natural greens, a growing membership and friendly club members. Our clubhouse is open every day from 4pm.
