Pony Night

Pony Night is held every Tuesday (6:45pm) to provide an evening of fun amongst peers for new bowlers who are learning the sport of lawn bowls. Members who have been bowling for 3 seasons or less are encouraged to come out to Pony Night and play a game, be social and make some connections.


NVLBC promotes the opportunity to learn and practice in a supportive, social, peer environment designed to build skill, confidence and further your interest of this sport while cultivating relationships along the way. Consider Pony Night your first stop in a lifelong love for lawn bowling. 

To all of you at NVLBC,

I would very much like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, enthusiasm, amazing support, unbelievable perseverance when it comes to breaking in a pony. Every time I showed up all of you made me feel so welcome. Every time I played everyone of you made me feel like I had succeeded. Thank you for making my first season a very memorable one. Every single person at this club has been so kind.

Pony Night is about having some fun while playing a game of bowls. However, NVLBC also wants to invest time into new bowler's skill development so they experience some success and feel confident about taking on new challenges like club draws, aggregate leagues and tournaments. Many of our club coaches volunteer to attend Pony Night, to support and inspire new bowlers, to explain bowling rules or etiquette, to show them different techniques or help with making adjustments in their game.  


NEW to Bowling but not a NVLBC member?

Not a problem!  NVLBC offers coaching lessons to anyone. We offer a Coaching Only option in our Registration process for new bowlers who want to try out lawn bowling without committing to a full season.  

Below are a list of NVLBC 2022 Coaches. New bowlers are encouraged to connect with a coach when they want help or advice. You will find the coaches' contact information in the NVLBC phone list.
