Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club

Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club is Melbourne’s friendly, family club of the West.

The club is pokies-free and has a variety of spaces inside and out to cater for just about any event. Whether it’s a birthday, engagement, corporate function, wedding, trivia night, fundraiser, buck’s or hen’s party, or you’re looking to take part in pennant bowls, we’ve got you covered.

Our two inside function rooms (including our newly renovated Roy Gerbing room) provide a space to host the ultimate event, while our BBQ and undercover area is great for an outdoor party. For more information on our function rooms, outdoor area and catering options please CLICK HERE.

Other features of the club include three brand-new competition-standard pool tables (four in total), table tennis, darts, foosball, multiple BBQ facilities, projector and screen, stage, dance floor, mic and PA system.

Flem-Ken is also proud to have the most interesting and extensive beer list of any bowling club in the Southern Hemisphere! Our  selection includes 12 taps and a massive range of local and international bottled and canned beer and cider. Our selection is huge (and cheap) and always changing. If you love your craft beer, we’ve got a selection that will blow you away!
Our bars also have a selection of wines, spirits, RTDs and more.

Our synthetic green allows bowls to be played all year round and lights mean that both night pennant and barefoot bowls can be played into the evening.

Other aspects of the club include our free LIVE blues event each Tuesday, run by the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society. You can sit down for a meal each week from 6.30pm then enjoy some of Melbourne’s best blues artists.

We have a Friday night pool comp and events such as the Community Cup, Bowling with Babies, Roll Up Youth Bowls program and beer events that run seasonally. All these events are open to the public.

Since 1892 Flem-Ken has stood proudly on the junction of Racecourse, Epsom and Smithfield roads in Flemington. There’s plenty of free parking, the 57 tram from the city stops right outside and we’re just a short
walk from Newmarket station, three stops from the city.

Whether you’re looking to book a function, a rink for a barefoot bowls session, a BBQ with friends, game of pool, to join as a member or pennant bowler or to simply enquire about our facilities please click here.
