Book an Event
Are you seeking a venue for a corporate team building event, a birthday party, a baby shower or maybe you are just a group of friends wishing to try out something new? Why not give lawn bowling a try?
Many groups have and their fun lawn bowling tournaments have proved to be very successful. Some have even enjoyed it so much here at Kerrisdale Lawn Bowling Club (KLBC) that they have turned their tournament into an annual event!
KLBC has a comfortable clubhouse located in a beautiful setting, nestled in the corner of Elm Park, just off 41st Avenue between Elm and Larch streets. Free parking is conveniently available on the roads surrounding the park, making it very easy to park and play.
We welcome rental groups for a fun bowling experience. Our fee is $30 per person and includes equipment, instruction and competing in a tournament, if you wish. The time taken for this is up to four hours. We ask that all of your group who will be participating in the bowling wear flat, soft-soled shoes to protect the bowling greens from damage. The minimum group size is 10 people or $300. The maximum number of bowlers that can be accommodated is 64.
We do not provide food, alcohol or barbecue facilities but renters are welcome to bring their own snacks. There is free parking space right outside our gate where a food truck can be located, or some groups have chosen to arrange for independent caterers to provide the food for them. If you are serving alcohol, you are required to obtain a special event permit (SEP) from the Liquor Distribution Branch. This can be obtained online at specialevents.bcldb.com. The server will need to take the course before purchasing the SEP and KLBC requires the SEP permit to be shown before the day of the event.
Eating and drinking while bowling is permitted but food or drinks cannot be carried onto the greens. Food must be served on paper plates and drinks in paper or plastic cups.
If you would like to book an event, please let us know the date and the number of people you expect to attend. We also need to know at what time you would like the event to be held. Bookings are usually done in 4-hour blocks of time. The latest booking we take in the evening is 4-7 pm.
We cannot take payment through debit or credit cards, but will accept cheques or cash.
We welcome this opportunity to share our facilities with you and provide you with a fun experience and exposure to the art of lawn bowling.

"I wanted to thank you and the volunteers for helping make the baby shower last Saturday such a success! Everyone had a wonderful time! I also really appreciate you being so accommodating with set up and clean up.
I'm so thrilled with how the day went and the weather could not have been better! I know several people are looking forward to returning for some more lawn bowling and hopefully also book some team building activities!
Thank you again for helping make Saturday such a great event!"
