Welcome to Plimmerton Bowling Club, where bowlers from all walks of life come together, including teenagers honing their skills, to the more experienced veterans, and other sportsmen and women seeking something a little different, who still relish the challenge of competition or simply prefer pleasant afternoons enjoying a social roll-up on our green.


​​​​​​​Competitive bowling gets underway during mid-September and runs through until late April. However because we have an artificial green bowling is possible all year round.

We provide a great opportunity for teams and players of the winter sports to play together and stay together throughout the summer months during their off-season.

Our clubroom and/or green can be made available for the occasional social function, company seminars, or for groups who meet on a regular basis.

About the Club

Formed in 1926, the Plimmerton Bowling club is host to both men and women players and a smaller number of social members. New members whether playing or social are always welcome.

Located 30kms north of Wellington, the Plimmerton Bowling Club is part of the wider coastal community formed by the Ascot Park, Aotea, Papakowhai, Paremata, Mana, Plimmerton, Camborne and Pukerua Bay suburbs of Porirua City. Situated at 11 Grays Road, Plimmerton, the club is immediately accessible from State Highway One and is within 5 minutes easy walk of the Plimmerton railway station. There is ample off-street parking available.

The Club has a top quality, full size artificial green, available for club and casual play, including galas all year round. This green is considered to be one of the best in the Wellington region.The well appointed clubrooms (see photo gallery) are licensed with bar & a dart board! The clubrooms, with a full size kitchen area, are available for hire.

Coaching is available each Monday afternoon and practice sessions for members continues on Wednesday mornings.

During the off-season (May - August) activities include Indoor Bowls and  a card-playing group (playing 500). If you would like to join any of these activities, contact the Club Secretary.
