We have three Open Draws each week: Thursday and Friday mornings and Sunday afternoons. These  Draws are open to all members. These are fun events and are where all newcomers should consider playing. They will help you learn the game, meet other members and start to hone your skills. No advanced sign-up is required. Just drop in whenever you feel like it.  A Draw Master is on duty for each of these events. There are just a few rules to remember:

  • Teams will be assigned by Draw Master
  • Draw closes 15 minutes before the start times.
  • Tags must be down before the draw closes (15 minutes before start time)
  • If a member can make it for the draw but is delayed, you can phone and the Drawmaster will put your name in the draw.
  • The regular schedule may be altered for corporate or special events

Thursday & Friday mornings at 10:00 am 

Sunday afternoons at 1:30 pm

The Wednesday Morning Group is made up of Esso annuitants and CALL group members. It is
very basic social bowling – 8/10 ends and coffee after. It has been used in the past for new
bowlers who want extra time coaching, but also it is open to club members, in general,
should they wish to attend. It is classified as “fun” bowling for those who are not interested
in progressing to higher levels. And can be useful for those who miss or cannot make a
weekly coaching session.

Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am

On Tuesday mornings we host the Men’s & Ladies Leagues. At the beginning of the season teams of triples are made up by a random draw and play together for the season. The leagues run each week until September. Open to all members. While it is a fun league, it is also a bit competitive. 

Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am

For those not familiar with Cut-Throat, it is a game where three people play against each
other in a game of (usually) 4 bowls singles – but with a unique scoring system. The 3
closest bowls score, regardless of who they belong to. The closest bowl gets 3 points, the
second gets 2 and the third gets 1 point. It is entirely possible (and often happens) that
one player can get 6 points for getting the three closest bowls. Open to all members, this is a great practicing format. Sign up as a single.

Wednesday Evenings at 7:00 pm.

In this league, you form your own pair of bowlers.  Australian Pairs allows both people on a team to play Lead and Skip. In the first end of the game, the Leads start with 2 Bowls each. Then the Skips play their 4 Bowls. Then the Leads complete the end with their final 2 Bowls. Thus, the Leads act as Lead and Skip in the same end. In the next end, the roles are reversed.

The Skips play first with their Two Bowls. Then the Leads play their 4 Bowls. Then the Skips
complete the end with their final 2 Bowls. This alternating pattern continues throughout the game. Aside from the extra walking, the rules are the same as a normal Pairs Game.

While the league is certainly open to all members, this league allows players to play under more competitive conditions. 

Thursday Evenings at 7:00 pm.

In this league, you form your own pair of bowlers.  The Inter-Club Pairs alternates each week between Calgary Lawn Bowling Club and Stanley Park. It tends to be a bit more of a competitive league probably appealing to bowlers who have at least a few years of experience.

Monday afternoons at 1:00 pm

The club usually has 6 Jitneys scheduled most years. We also have 2 fun days this year. A Jitney is a one-day fun “tournament” for ALL members of the club, newcomers included. You must sign up before each Jitney to be eligible to play. Sign-up sheets are posted a week or two before each event. Teams are drawn at random on the day of the event and a light lunch is usually served between games. These are “fun” days and are intended for ALL members regardless of your experience.

  • Opening Jitney – June 2
  • June Fun Day  – June 15
  • Canada Day Jitney – July 1
  • Stampede Breakfast & Jitney – July 14
  • July Fun Day  – July 27
  • Heritage Day Jitney – August 5
  • Labour Day Jitney – September 2
  • Volunteer Closing Fun Day (TBD)

The club has 4 Tournaments: the Club Singles Championships, the SPLBC Mixed Pairs Tournament, the Quadi and the Survivor Tournament.  Tournaments are open to all members.

  • Men’s & Ladies Singles – the club singles championships (July 12 & 13)
  • The Mixed Pairs Tournament creates teams by random draw. A bit more than a fun tournament players are playing for the club trophy.  (July 20)
  • The Quadi is a team made up of 4 players, with teams to be drawn. The 1st game is a fours match of 8 ends. In the 2nd game, the team will nominate a player to play a singles match of 10 ends. The three remaining players will play a game of triples. Then the final game will be 8 ends with your team divided into 2 sets of pairs and playing a pairs match. (August 31)
  • The Survivor Tournament takes place near the end of the season. This is another “fun” tournament where 4 players are pitted against each other and one by one get eliminated until there is a lone “survivor” (September 14)
