NOTE: Thanks everyone, but we’re not booking any more events for the 2022 season. We’ll be glad to talk to you next season, though.
Looking for something fun and easy for that special event, such as a birthday or team-building exercise? Let us host your event. The 110-year-old West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club with its iconic clubhouse is the perfect venue. If you’re interested, please contact us with the date, time, and the number of people you expect to attend.
What you need to know:
• We request a donation of $30 per person (minimum $400 per group).
• Our volunteers will be on hand to host your group and help throughout your event.
• We provide all necessary bowling equipment and coaching.
• The length of your event can vary based on the format you choose (single-game, multi-game tournament, etc.). On average, events take about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete, and we’re happy to help you set up teams in advance so everything runs smoothly for you and your group. If your event is in the evening, it must wrap up by 9:45 pm as our permit only allows us to use the facilities until 10:00 pm.
• There is no dress code. Some groups like to theme their event (such as dressing in traditional “whites”) but you simply need to wear flat-soled shoes (no heels at all) and comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. Change rooms are available inside the clubhouse.
• Alcohol may only be served or consumed at your event if you secure an AGCO Special Occasions Permit AND a City of Toronto Special Events Permit
• The West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club is located at 275 Keele Street (in Baird Park), about 1 km north of Bloor (about a 10-minute walk from Keele subway station). There is street parking available and a Green P parking lot just north of Annette (351 Keele Street). There is also ample bike parking at the club.

It would appear everyone who attended the 2015 West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club’s 2015 Open House left happy, but the smiles sported by Ward 14 Toronto City Councilor Gord Perks was a little bigger.
Perks, along with Provincial Parliament member for Parkdale-High Park Cheri Dinovo and club members Edward Fraser and Steve Shallhorn, defeated a representative Ward 13’s Sarah Doucette‘s office, Chris Haskim, who was teamed up with Peggy Nash, Member of Parliament for the Parkdale-High Park, and WTLBC members Stephen DeKuyper and Sue Watson.
It was the fourth annual “Grudge Match“, which is held each year at the WTLBC Open House. If you’d missed the Open House but would still like to try lawn bowling, come out for a free lesson and game any night we’re open.
Hello fellow Junctioneers! Drop on by the West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club any time from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, June 6 for some free bowling and (very) cheap eats. It’s an excellent chance to meet your neighbours and try some bowling.
Plus, Councillors from each of the surrounding Wards will once again battle in the Grudge Match for the coveted Ward Trophy. Cheer, or jeer, as you wish!
See everyone on the greens!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us, or tweet us at @TOLawnBowling or reach out to us on Facebook.
(And if you can’t make the Open House but still want to give bowling a try, you can come out any night on our schedule and try it absolutely free!)
The bowls were rolling and the sun was shining on West Toronto Lawn Bowling Club in the Junction. 2015 has officially started and we welcome members back to the new year.
New players are welcome anytime for an introduction to the game. Thank you everyone for making opening day a great success! See you on the greens.
