We have a “For Sale” tab on our website. This is for bowls related items only which our members want to sell/give away.

If you want something added please email match@joondalupbowls .com.au with the necessary details.
We would also ask that if we do put something up for you and you sell or give it away please advise when the item is sold/given away so we can remove the notice.

Wrong Bias Tin


We have a wrong bias tin in which members deposit $2.00 if they happen to put down a wrong biased bowl. So if you are playing pennants, a championship event, social bowls or even just practicing we are sure your fellow bowlers will remind you about the tin, if you happen to forget. In the time the wrong bias tin has been going over $950.00 has been raised to go towards a donation to Cancer research and Legacy.


Thank you to all those members who continue to forget to look at the bias before delivery.
