The Wanderers Bowling Club

Inspiring Those Who Aspire To Be

More than a club.
More than just bowling.

We strive to be the premier bowls club in Johannesburg South Africa and continue to grow bowls as a sport for longevity. We cater for all categories of bowlers from 1st division league level (men and women) to novice bowlers. Beginners are welcome and coaching can be arranged.  Whether you are competitive or just want to play socially, by playing bowls you are out in the fresh air, keeping your mind and body active, making new friends and being part of a close-knit community.

Bowling Greens Facilities

We have four greens, one of which is floodlit, as well as a dedicated bowlers lounge with a patio and bar facilities. Twilight bowls can be hosted on summer evenings on request. The greens are open throughout the year and the league season runs from October to March. Our greens are considered some of the best in Johannesburg and are regularly maintained by experienced greenkeepers. We have had the honour of hosting several masters, national and international competitions on our greens. Corporate games for team building, as well as private bowls games, are available on request and all equipment can be provided.
