The Indoor Bowls Season is upon us once again, as members make the shift from Outside to Inside. British Columbia is lucky to have a two great indoor facilities, the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club and Qualicum Beach LBC which has a 3 rink facility attached to its Clubhouse.
The Canadian Indoor Championships will be held October 30 – November 5, 2016.
PACIFIC INDOOR BOWLS CLUB
The PIBC offers a wide variety of leagues throughout the season. Leagues range from social, recreational play to intense, high-level professional play. All leagues are based on an 11 week, 11 game session. Prizes, which vary, are awarded to teams that finish in high rankings at the end of the session.

Open Draws are great for people that can’t commit to a league or just want to try out the carpet for the first time to see how much fun it is. Both members and the public, to drop in and play a casual game of bowls. Coaching is not provided at this time, so some experience is helpful.
QUALICUM BEACH LBC
In 1992 an extension was completed that doubled the size of the club house and provided room for two short mats or four carpet bowls mats for indoor bowling. In 1995 our club underwent a name change to Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club.
On the club’s 25th anniversary, construction commenced on a further expansion of the club house and included an Indoor Green. This expansion project was completed in the summer of 2007. The new indoor facility includes three regulation sized greens.
