Palo Alto Lawn Bowling Club

Palo Alto Lawn Bowls Club has been a part of the Palo Alto community since the 1930s. When the gates to the club are open, the public is welcome to visit, watch the game, and talk to members about the game. Visiting bowlers from other clubs anywhere in the world are welcome to join in our draw games at no cost. They have loaner bowls for you to use.


The Palo Alto Lawn Bowls Club is a member-based organization. Dues-paying members have access to all events and amenities that the club offers — from bowling in draw games and tournaments to attending socials.  No need to wear whites, just flat-soled shoes.

Operating Hours

The club is open year-round. If you are new, drop-in on a Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (weather permitting) and a coach will be on the green to get you started.


For a list of games, tournaments and other events please visit their website.


There is an initiation fee to cover your badge, key, etc. and additional annual membership fee that includes free lessons.
