The Birkenhead Bowling Club was founded in 1943 and has developed into a valuable recreational, social and sporting amenity on Auckland's North Shore. In 2009 the Club made a significant move forward in opening the membership up to women. With this move came a number of new members and our membership has grown each year. Our Club is situated in the Birkenhead Village, Birkenhead, (next to Birkenhead Primary School and across the road from Bungalow Cafe) and we are proud to be an active contributor to our community. The Club is a member of Clubs New Zealand with our members enjoying visiting privileges to approximately 300 Clubs across New Zealand and visiting privileges to many Clubs in Australia that belong to their local Club affiliation.
The club was awarded Bowls North Harbour Club of The Year 2009, 2010 & 2012.
In 2015 the club become the first Club in the Bowls North Harbour Centre to be awarded the prestigious ClubCheck Gold Award. In recognition for providing a strong and sustainable club, based on sound business management, promotion of the sport in the local community, encouragement of community use of its facilities, the clubs continued development of facilities and bowling results.
