Barefoot & social bowls

Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club can cater for all groups from a few friends wanting to have a relaxing afternoon of bowls to large group bookings. Everyone is welcome, with the only proviso that players must be barefoot or be wearing flat-soled shoes. Thongs are fine.

Casual bowls

Barefoot bowls is not only a fun reason to get together with friends but its also an excuse to get some light exercise and fresh air in pleasant surroundings. It’s a great way to get familiar with the game that we love and there are always people ready to help out and play with you even if you come down by yourself.

So, when can I play?

Any day

As long as there isn’t Pennant bowls or a tournament being played the greens are open – the regular price is $10 a head for an unlimited amount of time.

If the weather looks a bit iffy or if you are bringing more than four or five people it’s always a good idea to give us a call on 9376 6414 before arriving.

Wednesday afternoons

Mid-week “Butchers’ Bowls” has a long tradition at Flem-Ken and is a great way to get a little more involved in bowling. The relaxed game begins at 1pm and you will be put into a team with a mix of beginner and experienced bowlers. Entry is $5 and the winners take the pool!

Thursday evenings

Every Thursday the club opens the greens for FREE to those who want to try out our great game. This can be very popular so please arrive early or book a rink.

Group events

Flem-Ken is a great place for group bookings of bowls. We have some of the cheapest prices — both for drinks and for bowls — in Melbourne and we're easily accessible by car and by public transport. Our synthetic greens mean that we are open all year round and can cater from small to large groups.

We charge $10 a head, which includes unlimited bowling on the day and bowls hire.

There are BBQ facilities available and you are welcome to BYO any food you might want. There is no BYO of any drinks, but the well-stocked bar will be open for you and our prices are very reasonable.

For more information about holding a group event at Flem-Ken please see our Functions page.
