Welcome to St. Mary's Lawn Bowls Club!
St. Mary's Lawn Bowls Club had it origins in the early 1940's in its scenic location above the Northwest Arm. It is an internationally popular sport which can be enjoyed by anyone and is a game of skills, tactics, and lots of fun! There are a number of tournaments, fun events, open days, etc. throughout the year.
Great job to both of the St. Mary's teams that participated in the Bluenose today (Aug. 4 and 5) . The men came second, losing only by 3 points. And the women won a game against a team from wanderers. We are immensely proud of both teams and they are both pleased with the results!
We had a really enjoyable NS fours tournament (2019) at the club this weekend. Both men’s and women’s won a game against experienced players and we were very happy with our results.
It’s great to see SMLBC players becoming more competitive.
Do you know the history of lawn bowls?
Bowls historians believe that the game developed from the Egyptians. One of their pastimes was to play skittles with round stones. This has been determined based on artifacts found in tombs dating circa 5,000 B.C. The sport spread across the world and took a variety of forms, Bocce (Italian), Bolla (Saxon), Bolle (Danish), Boules (French) and Ula Miaka (Polynesian). The sport of lawn bowls is the forerunner of curling, a tremendously popular winter version played in Canada and other countries on ice.
