Did you know that Kerrisdale has been in its present location since 1917? That means that our greens have been played on continuously longer than any other greens not just in Metro Vancouver but in BC!!
In 2017 we have the following events to look forward to:
For those of you who want to give this sport a try, coaching is available from one of our great coaching staff. When you call, we will arrange something that works for everyone.

This is the 9th year that Lawn Summer Nights has been raising money to fight Cystic Fibrosis, helping people enjoy the summer season and getting 1,000's out to roll some bowls. Kerrisdale has been a proud supporter of this event since 2011. In its first year, this event raised $11,000 for CF. That was pretty impressive. Today, the event takes place across Canada from Charlottetown to Victoria with stops in Toronto, London, Calgary, Edmonton and, of course, Vancouver. By 2016 the event had raised $2,000,000 over its lifetime. You can learn more about the event right here.
Pictured right is the courageous Eva Markvoort, whose own battle with CF was the inspiration for Lawn Summer Nights and who was able to participate in the first event in 2009.
Trivia: the Vancouver event is held at Granville Park, includes 40 teams of rinks, has a $500 per team entry fee, and fills up in less than 5 minutes!! This is by far the largest and most successful bowls event in Canada.
