Enoggera Bowls Club Inc (the Club) has been in operation on its current site at 72 Pickering Street, Enoggera since 1939. The Club’s assets on the site have reflected the nature of the changes in the community.
In 1940 the first clubhouse was constructed, and play began on the first green. Until 1966, our Club consisted of two separate bodies – the Men’s and Ladies’ clubs. In this, the year that Enoggera Bowls own Edna Horton was the Queensland Singles Champion, the club voted to amalgamate the clubs and has been run as an inclusive organisation ever since.
In 1970, the clubhouse was again extended, and two further greens were constructed, making our organisation the first club in Queensland to have four greens. Our facility remained the epicentre of the community throughout the 1980s and 1990s with between 600-800 locals attending social events and competitions on the grounds every week.
Throughout the 2000s our services expanded to reflect the growing needs of the community, with both Futsal and beach volleyball taking place on site.
Into the future, we will continue to deliver on their commitment to the community. Whilst our redeveloped Club will continue to have an emphasis on bowls, there will be a broader multi-sport, health and physical activity focus and our community is looking forward to working with other sporting, health, community and fitness entities from our new home to create a vibrant sporting complex that will cater for a wide range of age groups and health, and sporting interests.
