Thank you to Bowls South Africa for the loan of the "Bare-foot-bowls" trailer. The children and teens had great fun. All of them rolled a "bowl" for the first time.
The Old Parktonian Sports Club Bowls Section was founded in 1962 with one green.
The Clubhouse and a second green were built in the early 70’s.
The Bowls Section now boasts 2 well maintained greens appropriately named after two prominent members – namely Lawrie Locke and Robin Craggs.
The surrounding gardens make these greens amongst the most attractive in the region.
The club facilities are sought after as venues for competitions and tournaments under the auspices of the JBA.
The 110 members enjoy a full calendar of Tabs sessions, internal and external tournaments and competitions which ensure that the facilities are not underutilized.
The section runs the following very successful annual tournaments
Saturday Trips sponsored by Bowen Insurance Brokers
Wednesday Fours sponsored by Century Properties.
Sheila Fox Ladies Charity Day run in March
Twilight Pairs Tournament is an annual event
Social tournament held between Christmas and New Year.
Club Shirts, Jerseys and Jackets are available from the committee at competitive prices.

The club has 3 Mens and 3 Ladies Teams and a pennant side in the JBA Saturday League.
