We provide an opportunity for young bowlers to play bowls in a friendly and competitive environment at Palmerston North Bowling Club. A ‘colt’ (a first or second year bowler) can compete for their own club championship, while also competing against experienced bowlers in our 10 years (bowler) and under, and Senior Men’s/Women’s Championships.
