Now Celebrating our 110th Year

The Club, located in Beacon Hill Park, is central to downtown Victoria and the neighbourhoods of James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland and Fernwood. Our fully equipped clubhouse is flanked by two greens containing 16  rinks.

Daily draws are finished for the season and will begin again in May.  If croquet interests you, then come visit us on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays between noon and 3pm and a member will be glad to show you how to play.

And this site tells you everything you ever wanted to know about crown green bowling

Crown Green Bowls is a two player game (or more) and each player plays just two bowls. A full game comprises a number of ends. The player sending the jack can choose to deliver it wherever they like on the bowling green. This ability to bowl an end in any direction is a unique feature of crown green bowls. Players then take it in turns to roll each of their bowls towards the jack.
A player can send the jack anywhere on the green in this game. The player who rolls the jack thus has a distinct advantage since the jack will be thrown long or short, across the crown or along the edge according to the preference of that player. The place to bowl from is marked by a round mat called a “footer” between 7 and 10 inches in diameter.

Games will continue every Sunday as long as the weather permits.
