Camden Bowling Club

Like most bowling clubs in New South Wales the foundation of the Camden Bowling Club was never smooth sailing. The foundation members had to fight tooth and nail against council bureaucrats, war rationing and the harsh elements to succeed to establish the club and greens. It was the foundation members’ persistence and unflinching resolve that enabled them to achieve their goals.

On Thursday, 20 July 1939, 23 potential bowlers, chaired by Mr J.L. Hogg, discussed what the prerequisite were to form and build a bowling club. The meeting set an annual subscription of £2.20 and decided to ask the Camden Municipal Council for sufficient ground in Onslow Park to lay down a bowling green. On 11th October 1939, after endless meetings and discussions, an area in the south-west corner of the showground was finally granted. However, the first stage was to clear several large pine-nut trees, large acorn trees, divert a large open drain and a stock route (not to mention the itinerant gypsies who camped there).
