The Fitzroy Bowling Club is located on the East End Reserve and its 2 greens are dissected by the Te Henui stream and the NPDC Te Henui walkway.

The Fitzroy Bowling Club celebrated its centenary in 2003, however, its new premise at the East End Reserve is the result of 3 clubs (Waiwaka Women, East End, Fitzroy) merging as one in 1998. Over the past 10 years this merger has proved very successful with original membership peaking at over 
200 but now stands at around 160.  The club is a fully amalgamated men's and women's club under the Bowls NZ constitution.



The playing programme for members is very extensive and usually covers 5 or 6 days per week for club activity, plus, a series of other events such as 24 open tournament days and around 25 Bowls Taranaki days. The season commences mid-September and goes through to mid-May.


Our playing numbers include Fitzroy Bowling Club Members -  participants in regular club events throughout the bowling season, as well as open tournaments which attract bowlers from other clubs both within and outside of the region. Added to this are the Bowls Taranaki events which include the long-running annual TSB Men's Fours tournament which attracts circa 250 teams from across New Zealand and Australia, plus, the TSB Women's Fours with around 70 to 80 teams each year. 

Social Bowling events also play a big part in our club with many business groups hiring the facilities and utilising the greens as well as the Business House Bowls that we run from November through until late March. Numbers for the social events certainly vary, however, Business House Bowls has a weekly tournament attracting 96 players in a fun-filled triples format.



We are able to offer companies a very attractive signage proposal which gives great value to advertisers by way of visual exposure, competitive pricing and limited spacing to create maximum exposure and value for money. The signage at our greens is not just visible on the greens, but also from the surrounding walkway and reserve areas which are well utilised by the general public. With our facilities also being well patronised by many individuals and organisations for a variety of functions, your business's exposure is further increased.


Signage is sold on a first come first served basis with an emphasis on not having conflicting signage in near proximity to each other and where possible, on separate greens. Consideration is given to the placement of the signs to maximise exposure across both our clubs' greens, being Green No.1 (clubhouse) and Green No. 2 (over the river). Signs will be installed by us in a professional manner, once supplied and maintained to the best of our ability.   


It is preferable that all signs be on ACM material which has a higher resolution and presentation factor, as well as lasting significantly longer. ACM signs can also be “re-skinned” if a signage sponsor wishes to update them.  All signs are to be 2.4 metres long and 600mm deep. Signs will be at the cost of advertisers, who will, therefore, own the signs. Signage agreements will be for a one-year term with the right of renewal for consecutive years.   

COST: Currently the annual fee for all signs is $275.00 + GST.  The annual cost will be via a GST invoice raised by Fitzroy Bowling Club. A member of the Fitzroy Bowling Club’s Sponsorship sub-committee will complete a signage contract with you.
