AboutAsquith Bowling Club
Asquith Bowling & Recreation Club has it’s origins in 1950, initially to provide a venue for the thriving sport of lawn bowls. Today our Club continues to fulfill that same service, whilst providing a family friendly atmosphere for all members and their guests, and encouraging and supporting a range of amateur sports and community groups.
The Asquith Progress Association was integral to the development of the first stages of what is today a thriving club, strongly supporting the local community. Our Club is located on a site that was initially part of an orchard, then used as a pottery works, and also served as a camp for displaced migrants after WWII. The site was purchased by Hornsby Shire Council in 1950, and ultimately by Asquith Bowling & Recreation Club in 1998.
To continue the tradition of servicing the local community through the provision of first-class sporting facilities which promote the social and inclusive game of lawn bowls while closely complimenting other sporting and social pursuits.
To maintain serving the local community and capitalise on our unique location by evolving ourselves to be the pivotal service provider to members, their guests, schools, sporting and other social groups with the highest quality of food, beverage and other relevant facilities in an inclusive and warm environment which exceeds anticipated levels of hospitality.
To review and update our practices and the provision of services to ensure we remain current, sustainable and viable so that we may continue to strive to satisfy the needs of future generations of the local community.
