Welcome to Windsor Bowling & Sports Club!!
In March 1929, the town improvement association formed. One of their main aims was to improve McQuade Park, which was little more than a grass paddock. In fact the council was receiving fees for grazing rights.
In January 1930 an application was made to council for part of the land to be leased for the purpose of a bowling green. An agreement was reached soon after and work commenced in the middle of the year.
Probably no bowling club had such an unpropitious beginning as did the Windsor club. From the outset it was dogged by dissension and discord.
There was widespread resentment in the community over the proposal to finance the construction of a bowling green from public funds.
Feelings were further fanned when a meeting to form a bowling club was called by personal invitation and a private circular. Because it was not advertise, many contented that it was to be an exclusive club established on park land.
Recently the club has celebrated its 80th anniversary. The game of lawn bowls has always been at the core and this will continue as the Windsor Bowling and Sports Club moves towards its platinum jubilee.
Founded in 1931, the Windsor Bowling & Sports Club located in the historic McQuade Park, recently celebrated its 80th Birthday. Lawn Bowls is a sport for all ages and all levels of ability. We cater for a variety of functions, events and parties. We are a fully licenced club offering two quality bowling greens, BBQ facilities and Function room for hire. There is no better place for that next special occasion or a catch up with friends.
