2020 - Keysborough Kookaburras Continue their Success!
4 Finals - 2 Flags!
Having been promoted to Division 1 at the end of the previous season, the team did extremely well to just miss out on getting into the finals following the loss of the last game of the season. Brilliant effort guys!
Keysborough Weekend Division 3 - Finalists
Team 2 also had a successful year finishing 2nd on the ladder., They played in the Metro Sectional Semi Finals against Edithvale 2, and beat them 104 - 65. The following day they played Narre Warren at Berwick in the Metro Sectional Final in a very tightly contested competition with Keysborough ending up the winners 79 - 76 to take the flag. The win promotes the team to Division 2. This team (as well as Team 3) should have have gone on to play in the Divisional Quarter Finals, but because of the Corona Virus scare, Bowls Victoria indefinitely deferred all subsequent games.
Keysborough Weekend Division 5 - Finalists
Team 3 played their Metro Sectional Semi Finals against Narre Warren 3 on our home ground with a great win (98 - 68) , then went on to play the Metro Sectional Final against Dandenong at Cranbourne and won convincingly (97 - 71). This promotes them to Division 4.
Keysborough Weekend Division 6
Having just been promoted to Division 6 the previous season, this team was very competitive, only just missing out on making the top four on the ladder in the last game of the season.
Keysborough Weekend Division 7
This team put up a terrific fight throughout the season despite a number of walk-overs. Well done everyone!
Allan Munro Open Fours Day ~ 2020
This year saw the fourth Allan Munro Open Fours Day. Originally known as the New Year's Invitational Open Fours, the event has become a popular tournament for local and visitors alike.
Allan Munro was, and always will be "Keysborough Bowls Club". Together with his wife Gloria, they made a formidable team, and both worked tirelessly in the interest of the club. Today, Gloria Munro is still the main driver behind many events, and the club is truly indebted to her and her continuing efforts to organise the many games and especially Corporate Events.
This year the event also became involved in fundraising for the recent devastating bush fires in Victoria and other areas. Through the generosity of all that attended, a sum of in excess of $1000 was raised and donated to the Gippsland Country Fire Authority.
New Members Always Welcome!
New members, bowlers and non-bowlers alike, are always welcome at our club. Anyone that has never picked up a bowl is provided with all the assistance, including the use of club bowls, basic coaching, and companionship, that is needed to make you feel at home. Our club is very friendly,and always ready to help new players settle in.
We have 5 teams playing Weekend pennant:
and 4 teams playing Midweek pennant:
Part of the membership is the provision of access to the greens at any time, so that you are able to practice by yourself whenever you feel the need; although there are likely to be other members that will gladly share a rink with you; and give some additional advice on your bowling progress.
It is always a good time for new bowlers to join the club as your coaching program will take about 4 weeks to complete before you are cleared to bowl in club competitions. This will set you up to play pennant bowls if you wish on Tuesdays & Saturdays. Bowls and in particular pennant bowls should be attractive to people who have played team sports such as cricket, football, netball and golf. Feel free to drop into the club anytime to watch a pennant match on Tuesdays and Saturdays and speak to someone about having a try yourself. There are plenty of members who will make you feel welcome and give you some tips to get you bowling and having fun.

We have a fully licenced bar, and air-conditioned premises for those hot days. Bookings are coming in quickly, don't miss out!
The club welcomes any person interested in having a go at lawn bowling - it really isn't all that hard, and can provide a great deal of fun! From having a go, and liking it (and we think you will), you may consider taking up bowls at a social level, or competitive level. KBC has two synthetic bowling greens, both ideally suited for corporate, or barefoot bowling events. The front green also has lights, allowing for events to be held at night. We are a club for the young at heart and encourage anyone to have a go! We provide a great atmosphere, good facilities, and friendly members, who will always be ready to assist and encourage anyone willing to try.
The club has some simple guides for both Corporate and Barefoot Bowls:
- When bowling, please observe simple rules of etiquette
- No heels on the green
- Bare feet or socks are the best
- Please refrain from taking glass or glass bottles onto the green
- Respect the surface of the green by not running or jumping, or throwing or dropping the bowl
These events are on offer each week - just call Gloria on 0421 123 495 to arrange your event which can include a BBQ, salads and sweets, and access to best value bar service and prices.
